See below for answers to the most Frequently Asked Questions.
When will I receive my itinerary package with my game tickets and my Special Guest credentials?
All itinerary packages will arrive at your address via UPS no later than 2 weeks prior to your weekend. This package will include all confirmation numbers, Special Guest passes to the Post-Game BBQ, game tickets, a schedule of events for your weekend, and other pertinent information for your Red Sox Destinations Spring Training trip. Please note that we require a physical address be provided as UPS cannot deliver to P.O. Boxes.
Where will my seats be located at JetBlue Park?
Red Sox Destinations always aims to secure the best available seat locations. All game tickets are located in the "Infield Reserve" sections, unless otherwise noted.
What is the "SOX SAVER WEEKEND" package?
The SOX SAVER weekend is March 8-10, 2013. The SOX SAVER weekend trip includes a shorter itinerary, with just two (2) nights of hotel accommodations and two (2) days with a Hertz rental car. The weekend also does not include the game-day BBQ and reception with Red Sox player appearances. As standard however, the trip includes the opportunity to take Batting Practice on-field at JetBlue Park! Guests who book this option will still enjoy premium Red Sox gift bags, great tickets to two (2) Red Sox Spring Training games, and first class customer service while in Ft. Myers!
What is in my gift bag? When can I expect to receive it?
Your gift bag will include a Red Sox polo shirt, Spring Training t-shirt, Red Sox cap, Official Red Sox Spring Training program, MLB game ball, and other items. Your gift bag can be picked-up upon check-in at your selected hotel.
What airport should I fly into?
The closest airport is located in Fort Myers, and that is Southwest Florida International Airport. For the purpose of booking flights, the three letter airport code is RSW.
I would prefer a hotel room that is smoker-friendly. What are my options?
Most hotels are entirely smoke-free. This is true for many, but not all, of our partner hotels in the Fort Myers area. For our guests that would prefer smoker-friendly rooms, the Embassy Suites Estero and Holiday Inn both have designated rooms in which guests are welcome to smoke.
If I would like to extend my stay, should I do so through Red Sox Destinations or should I call the hotel and Hertz directly?
All hotel and rental car extensions should be made with Red Sox Destinations via telephone at 617-226-6400 to ensure that you receive our special discounted rates. We will not only extend your hotel stay, but will also extend your Hertz reservation and can obtain tickets to additional games at JetBlue Park. Please book all extensions to your stay no later than 3 weeks prior to your check-in date in order to ensure availability.
How do I go about securing tickets Red Sox Spring Training games that are not included in my package?
Red Sox Destinations can secure tickets for additional games at both JetBlue Park and at other venues across the Grapefruit League. To add additional game tickets to games at JetBlue Park, feel free to do so through our online booking process under the "Optional Upgrades" tab. To add game tickets at another team's park, please call a Red Sox Destinations customer service representative at 617-226-6400. Please note that additional game tickets are always subject to availability. Ticket pricing at other ballparks in the Grapefruit League varies and will be determined when the tickets have been confirmed. All additional ticket requests must be submitted no later than 45 days prior to each game's date.
What is your rainout policy?
While rainouts have historically not been common during previous Spring Training games, it is always a possibility. Unfortunately, we cannot issue refunds for the entire package price if a game is cancelled due to rain, but we will issue a refund for the face value of any game tickets to any cancelled games. Please contact Red Sox Destinations at 617-226-6400 if you would like more information about our rainout policy.
Which players and personnel will attend the VIP BBQ?
Each BBQ will include a chance to get autographs and participate in a Q&A with the team manager, and two current Red Sox players. Due to the busy schedules of our players, we are often not able to determine who the players will be until the week of the reception. As soon as we finalize who will be appearing at your VIP BBQ, we will send an e-mail out to inform you. In 2012 the following players and coaches made appearances at our Red Sox Destinations events: Dustin Pedroia, Jacoby Ellsbury, Jarrod Saltalamacchia, Bobby Valentine, Andrew Bailey, Darnell McDonald, Mark Melancon, Tim Bogar, and Ben Cherington.
