    Cardiff Accommodation - almost one year away

    Hey everyone,

    Long time lurker, first time poster. With opportunities for a couple of trips to Cardiff during the tournament....

    Sun 11th Oct - France v Ireland

    Sat 17th Oct - 1st C v 2nd D (NZ v Fra?)
    Sun 18th Oct - 1st D v 2nd C (Ire v Arg?)

    ....I'm trying to figure out a way to get a head start on booking a room. Does anyone know a hotel that will take bookings this far ahead at a decent rate, or know a good system for figuring out when rooms become available? Just want to avoid the usual 6N rush for rooms, especially with 4 nations worth of fans trying to squeeze into Cardiff on the QF weekend.

    Thanks all,
    Johnny.

    Have you tried contacting hotels directly? Most 3rd party booking systems only allow bookings 12 months before the end of your stay.

      Virtually all hotel systems operate on a tool in g365 days basis, and merge availability rich online travel agents the same way, accept the French company accor - Novotel / Ibis etc who operate longer ranges.
      locally the hotels will be able to give you a rate on the phone, but Cardiff revenue managers know the rugby Dates very well indeed, don't expect much.

        FYI - QF weekend rooms available at the Cardiff Gate, refundable too, so possibly a good placeholder until something better comes up....

              Sorry it's just for only one night. I had found accomodation in Cardiff for the other nights.
