bone idle said:I've done a bit of research and the organised trip is working out very expensive compared to a DIY job.
Say 2 of us went and stayed for 5 nights to make a bit of a holiday out of it. Not including the race entry it would cost £358 (airport pick up, half board in 3* hotel, afterparty!).
I've just got a quote from a 4* hotel (same 5 nites, half board) for £150.
I'll find my own way to the hotel and live without the afterparty if it means I save £200!!
Is there always such a massive difference in price?
