Most of the time this happens if I want to visit festival locations where I normally only stay a day or two.
The problem is that I always have to know about events plenty of time ahead to be able to book rooms at a decent rate.
Most of the time however, even booking in advance doesn’t help. Because many hotels and B&Bs at most of the major festival locations are charging premium if you book for the specific festival time.
To make things worse, getting to festival grounds from your hotel or B&B is not always easy either especially if it turns out that the festival is 10km from the place you booked which means you would need to rent a car or use a cab to get around.
The better way to visit festivals is without a question if you get yourself a nice camping van. It doesn’t have to be ultra-luxurious for most short-term stays. What’s so great about having a van is that you can go any place whenever you want and of course you’ll save a huge chunk of cash too, all at the same time.
Now, the good thing is that you don’t need to buy a van; you can just rent one! What I do, comes festival season I just rent from my favorite VW camper hire place for a month or two and can then go to wherever I want without worrying a thing like if I were to have booking hotel rooms So if you’re like me and want to get around without all those limitations you should definitely look into a camper van because it will be so much better!
