It’s worth keeping an eye on key sporting events drawing large crowds when planning your next trip.
With the Olympic Summer Games 2024 taking place in Paris, availability for accommodation during summer is already low. Many hostels and hotels have been booked out for the whole summer by Olympic teams and staff. As of spring 2023, some hotels further out of Paris, and near Disney, have availability, but you may choose to look at Brussels or Strasbourg instead or postpone your Paris trip until autumn.
It’s a similar situation for Berlin in June 2024, due to the Euros, availability will be in huge demand, if you don’t wish to postpone or switch to a different location, enquire and book as early as possible.
London’s Wimbledon also has a huge impact on hotel rates and availability, it is well worth trying to avoid visiting during the dates Wimbledon takes place if you are on a budget.
Our product specialists have worked hard over the past months to secure new hostel and hotel options, so we can offer our groups plenty of choices for busy dates.
