The Hotel Question

OK, some peole has made the remark that this blog has a lot of information on travel, but very few on accomodation.
So here are the websites you can use when following Iron Maiden on tour:

- European Festivals

Most festivals, like Wacken Open Air or Graspop have large camping sites and camping fees are often included in the price of the entrance.

- Youth Hostels

You can book hostels online, usually prices are very cheap, but sometimes you'll have to share your room. It's an ideal way if travelling with a small group.
The 2 most reliable Hostels booking engines are:
- Hostelworld
- Hostelbookers

- Hotels

The most common way to travel, and actually you can often find some really low fares.
Try the following search engines. Most of them are available in several languages, so it should be easy to book no matter where you come from:

- HotelClub - UK website - Excellent search engine with huge discounts.
- HotelClub worldwide website - the same website, for customers outside the UK
- RatesToGo - handles only last minute bookings (2 weeks or less), of course with huge discounts.
- Booking - Low negociated fares on hotels worldwide
- Hotels com - discounted hotels.
- Venere Hotels - Another good reservation central.
- Accor Hotels - The biggest french hotel chain, with all categories from motels to 5 stars.
- Intercontinental hotels Group - Holiday Inn, Crowne Plaza, Candlewood and other well known brands.
- Best Western - a well known brand with hotels around the world
