Áfram Ísland! European Championships, here we come!

Today marks the start of the European Championships. We’re so excited to be a big part of the game this year, supporting our National Team in France and helping fans from around the world get the best flights, hotels and rental cars for the best possible pricing and schedules.

Team Dohop will be joining our fellow Iceland fans at Stade Geoffroy Guichard in Saint-Étienne to support the first Iceland match (of many!) on Tuesday, June 14.


There are so many amazing things about Iceland qualifying for the UEFA European Championships for the first time. Not only is Iceland the smallest nation to ever make it to the European Championships, its football program has only 75 professional soccer players (the Goalie is a filmmaker and the team trainer is still a practicing Dentist), and its season is only 5 months long (due to the weather). In 4 short years, Iceland’s FIFA ranking has moved from 112 to 33. Like so many things about Iceland, the team’s ability to overcome all odds to achieve success, can never be underestimated.

We want to make sure you have the tools you need to get to your favorite matches on time. Below we’ve compiled some info on how Dohop can help (how about a rental car instead of the train?!) as well as some handy resources to have by your side during the next month of soccer madness.

Be Prepared: Union Strikes Affect Transportation

There are several union strikes in France across a number of industry sectors today and through the weekend. We encourage everyone to take some time planning their travel, as some air and rail services have and will continue to be impacted by demonstrations.

If you need to reroute or change your transportation plan, such as finding another flight route, booking an extra hotel night or getting a rental car, Dohop will help you get the best flight, hotel and rental car services for the best prices available to you.
