Welcome to GoAthlete, your solution for team travel management. We work closely with the event, its teams, and local hotels to ensure that there are enough rooms available to accommodate each team’s traveling athletes/supporters, as well as provide first class customer service. GoAthlete has built an online hotel booking engine which allows individuals and large groups to hold and book up to 50 rooms rooms at their desired hotel. Using GoAthlete’s booking engine is simple, but we’ve provided instructions and F.A.Qs. below to help answer any questions you may have.
HOW TO BOOK YOUR HOTEL ROOM/S.
Visit the hotel booking engine for your specific event. You can access this by visiting the official event website or Clicking Here.
Scroll through the event's official hotels and find one that fits your group's parameters.
Click on “View Options” located underneath the room rate.
Choose which room type you would like. Example; 1 King bed, 2 Double Beds, etc
INDIVIDUAL BOOKING: If you are ready to book your room, click on the “Book Your Room” button. This will prompt you to enter payment and contact information. Upon pressing submit you will receive an email with your confirmation number and hotel information.
TEAMS & GROUPS: **We understand that many of our school affiliated teams will be paying for their hotel accommodations via a school issued check. All of the participating hotels will accept this form of payment. However, a credit card is required at the time of booking, and a $7.50 non-refundable hold fee per room will be applied to the card. The remaining balance will be due upon arrival at the hotel.
Coaches & Team Managers - If you would like to hold a block of rooms for your team, click on the “Teams & Groups, Hold Rooms” button. This will prompt you to enter specific information regarding your team name, number of rooms needed, and contact information. Upon submission, a confirmation email will be sent to the person that placed the rooms on hold. This confirmation email will contain specific information about the room block and instructions to finalize your reservations. These rooms will be held for your group for 7 days. If an extension is needed, email us at Info@GoAthlete.com
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is the deadline for making reservations via the booking engine?
The deadline to book rooms via the booking engine is generally 2 weeks before the event begins. However, some events and hotels allow bookings until to the night before the event.
How do I place a block of rooms on hold for my team and allow each room to be paid for individually?
Once you've located your desired property and room type from the booking engine, click the "Teams & Groups, Hold Rooms" button. This feature allows a team manager to hold up to 50 rooms for their group for 7 days.

What if there are not enough rooms available at the property of our choice to accommodate our entire team?
Book your rooms early! This is the best way to ensure that your group is able to stay at the property of your choice.
