Porto Away Tickets

Anyone think the 0 pointers will have a good chance of getting?
Chances are not so good now that the TC are back to allowing special delivery and emailing an itinerary. A number of guys are happy to spend £42 for a point and then try and punt their ticket.

So secondary ticketing is now rife for euro aways because of it though, so that may help some.

Given it’s collection at Ibrox / Special Delivery there will be loads of spares kicking about for this.

No communication about it so I assume not
The e-mails sent today specifically mention independent travel. In the past when they've not run a day trip, they have communicated that they're not running it (due to cost, lack of aircraft etc etc), so I'd at least expect some form of communication about it.

The half full view is they're still working to find a solution with another carrier and will communicate when all avenues have been exhausted, ie, no news is good news.

The half empty view is they have said not one thing to those who registered with TC with the expectation of going. A blanket "we're trying to find a solution" would go some way to keep fans updated, but saying nothing has just caused confusion and anger.

I’m not sure how it works but doesn’t the travel itinerary need to include proof it’s you travelling?

My memory is different from yours then mate as the Gibraltar and Warsaw trips especially had threads similar to this :)) Those games were just as bad but all got tickets in the end, one way or another.

This probably seems worse due to the increased number travelling to this game compared to the qualifiers.
All sorted now, 2 weeks before the game. Everyone can go back to normal again.

I think you will find most of those posting "when will?" Comments are fairly new to european tours or maybe used to Thomas Cook doing it all for them.

Yes.

Theres quite a few people who

1. Have zero intention of trailing somewhere and booking travel unless they have a ticket.

2. Go there and back same day for work / business / family reasons and happy to pay a premium to do so.

The club have had 2 weeks (3?) of putting those people off / ignoring sportoptions offers then making no mention of it in the official email today.

Feel free to prove me wrong Rangers.

What order numbers are we up to? Mine was bought couple hours ago order number 054. Would be useful for the one and zero pointers to know how the numbers are going.

That’s what I was thinking until yesterday. Now I don’t believe a day trip will be organised and now looking at other options.

Absolutely shocking that we have not had any updates from the travel club.

If the ticket offer opens up to folk on Zero points and you don’t purchase a ticket you will not get a point. If it does not open up to zero points then you will

Agree. If pushed I'd say that the day trip will get binned, which is an absolute pisser.

That said, I'm trying to remain positive that they're still working on something and that's why they've not said anything. I asked the SLO this direct question last Friday and he told me that he couldn't say anything until the Club confirm to him (one way or another).


Hope dies last, right?!!... :rolleyes:

Still need to sent itinerary for special delivery.

Suppose some well off bears might still be willing to pay flights etc and not go for the points. Definitely not a fan of that.

A day trip was never a realistic prospect as far as I'm aware. Sport options tried but couldn't get takeoff slot for Thursday night to come home.

Hardly surprised will keep happening until collection is in the city the game is in, folk might not like it but it’s the only way it will work. Maybe not been able to collect it until a week tomorrow means they are giving the travel itenerey’s a good look.
