Ok folks we have 7 confirmed as of this morning travelling from Bristol on 8th December, returning on 11th. My intention is to book hotel & flights on 31/07/2023 so if anyone is still interested please send me your full names, addresses & DOB so I can make necessary arrangements. Also please confirm hotel needs. 

The tendancy is for flights to increase in price as time goes by so if anyone wants to join the tour later they are more than welcome but we can't rely on costs given now.

Final update before flight/hotel booking. We now have 10 confirmed so mini bus transfers to and from airport/hotel is now financially feasible. The current buses under consideration both ends have some additional capacity ( 14). Full confirmed itinerary will be listed here next Tuesday hopefully.

Hotel rooms booked at the Renaissance Hotel, 17 rue Victor Hugo - 250 metres from centre & rated Excellent & 9.6 for location on booking.com. Castres ground is apparently 2.5 kms from hotel. 500-600 metres to the river. More to follow.

Hotel rooms booked are around £1400 for 10 people in 4 doubles & 2no singles for 3 nights - singles cost more of course pro rata. Flights are going to come in at £205 - £230, transfers to and from Bristol around £35-£40 per head each way & something similar Toulouse Airport to Castres Hotel.

Ok folks Fever I is up and running. To date we have 13 confirmed - 12 travelling from PYS with one joining us at Bristol Airport. All rooms have been booked at the central Renaissance Hotel. Flights are confirmed with EasyJet out of Bristol on 8th December at 1440 arriving Toulouse 1725; returning on 11th December at 1055 arriving 1150.

6 large cabin bags, 1 23 kg hold baggage & 13 carry on cabin bags are booked. With regard to seats - on booking certain requested seats I was not allowed to mix and match so I took the executive decision and confirmed all seats so we have 13 together in three rows on both flights. Cost is £6.99 each way per person. 

I now would like to turn to transfers. I have a confirmed cost for a bus ( max 14 people + luggage) from PYS to Bristol at £750.00 return. Spreading that cost over the 12 travelling it would work out at a little over £30 each way. In my opinion that is cost effective when compared with the cost of travelling to Bristol by car sharing when you add in parking costs. If anyone disagrees please PM. I hope to confirm this booking by the end of the week. 

I am still working on bus transfers the other end but it will be something similar. A bus transfer from Toulouse airport direct to the hotel for me is worth paying a little extra as opposed to the train journey which involves 2 changes and takes around an hour longer each way. I will report back on costs.

For anyone who is still considering the trip & for whatever reason cannot commit now please do not feel you have missed the chance. PM me if you would like updated costs etc and we can see what we can do. Future confirmations will of course have to take into account flight & hotel availability.

Rob - thank you mate. Hopefully this will be the start of many. Have you had the hip sorted yet - I keep forgetting to ask. If not good luck.

Cheers both. Hip Op went well thanks.  Got it done the first week in February and managed to catch the last few games of the season. Got it done with the aid of a robot believe it or not.  Great result as robot gets it spot on every time. Smile
