how to book flights

Airfare to London is very affordable; for example, a non-stop flight from San Francisco to London is currently $650–$720 round trip. You can track price changes using online tools, e.g., http://flights.google.com/, but when booking flights, it's recommended to book directly with the airlines.

If you're wondering which London airport to fly to, when you search for flights, simply enter "London - all airports" as your destination. This search will display all available flights, allowing you to choose the one that best suits your needs. Heathrow Airport primarily handles international flights, while the smaller Gatwick Airport also serves some European destinations. There are convenient transportation options connecting London with both airports, and we will provide airport transportation options in the Runbuk Handbook, which will be sent to all Runbuk runners later on.

cancellation POLICY

The London Marathon package is nonrefundable. We can try to help you find a replacement runner to take your spot if you can’t travel, but sometimes it’s simply impossible, for example, when we don’t have a waitlist, or when you inform us with a very short notice, or the registration deadline has passed – in these cases, your package and payment would be lost completely.

Travel insurance will bring peace of mind at a small cost. We recommend Allianz Travel Insurance, and WorldTrips. please see the TRAVEL INSURANCE section below for details.
