Large group of us all booked up for russia, all group matches covered with free cancelation the amount of times appartments tried to cancel as they didnt realise it was world cup dates when taking the bookings but to be fair to booking.com in some instances they found us similar accomodation at the cost of the original booking when apartments cancelled the original booking.

Only fools Russian...
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

Good question considering there's 11 cities to choose from...LOL
 
He's bound to have come up with some sort of a route though, and I'm guessing Moscow is one of the main ones.
 
Wonder how many of those hotel bookings he'll actually have kept by the time they do set off. LOL

Been looking at doing the same the past week, a lot of effort though especially as I have no idea of exact numbers going. Looking like there are plenty of cheap ways to get there also.

What's the cost of accommodation, ballpark ?
 
And what is an overall estimate for travel, accommodation and group games, again roughly ?
 
And how could I forget - the price of a pint ?

Last two tournaments I booked fairly early but when we qualify for Russia I'll just book what I need when we know where we are . There was feck all in the price when I booked France the night we qualified up until 8 weeks before hand . And we were only guessing and hoping what venues we should book . So I'll be more cautious when booking up this time

I thought I was being clever booking French cities before the draw but my Bordeaux hotel wanted a lot more money when I tried to reduce the booking.   In the end we compromised on double the rate for the nights I wanted.

Hotels are great value in Moscow anyway.

I've booked Moscow on free cancellation.  I will probably use Moscow as a base anyway if we qualify.  If we don't  I will go anyway and use Moscow as a base.

Its going to take a fair bit of research  but it would be a nice problem to have

basically we split the groups between 3 of us, 3 nights in each host city 2 for the third round of games.
The prices vary from group to group and city to city but we have nothing booked thats over €38 per person per night. Mixtue of apartments / hostels and 2* hotels.

Scarily well organised.  Keep your eye on your bank balance as some so called 'free cancellation' bookings try to pull a fast one.

That's what I was thinking, a lot of bandwagonners who were tripping over themselves to get to France last year won't fancy going to Russia for various reasons (that they see anyway) - eg resident hooliganism, different language and culture even from the rest of Europe, harder to get to compared to France and Poland etc etc etc... 
 
Still not 100% certain about it myself yet tbh but as you say, I'd prefer us to at least have that decision to make at the end of the year... Wink
