Is there a single-day Treffen registration fee?
Not at this time; Treffen can only accommodate a certain number of attendees. The escorted drives are limited in size to meet the PCA Driving Tours standards and other activities have a set capacity to ensure quality.

 

What is the refund policy for Treffen?

Cancellations received prior to July 21 receive a full refund less $50 per person processing fee.
Cancellations between July 22 and September 5 receive a full refund less $100 per person processing fee.
Sorry, no refunds after September 6.

 

Can I reserve a room at the special rate prior to Treffen registration opening?
No, a booking code will be provided in the registration process; use that code when making hotel reservations. Base price is $229 per night plus taxes.

 

Do I have to stay at the “official” hotel?
No; however, PCA has negotiated a spectacular rate at these four-star hotels and has contracted for a substantial room block to accommodate the attendees. These resorts have also offered to extend the conference rate both before or after Treffen

 

May I participate in Treffen without a Porsche?
The destinations’ roads are best experienced in a Porsche; however, a Porsche is not required. Treffen is seeking to secure rental Porsches from Hertz for future Treffens.
