Pete, if you are thinking about using them for IOM TT, they were bloody expensive.Gday .. Has anyone used Sportsnet for any packages?? I'd like to hear opinions good and bad.. tia...
Lol. We pretty much got our accommodation the same way (but I think through the tourism site) back in '96 when we were there! We hadn't realised that you needed to book accommodation at least a year in advance. But we got lucky big time - the place we scored was on the road that feeds directly up from the Douglas promenade up to the course, and comes out on the top of Bray hill just after the start straight. The Kiwi sidecar guys were just up the road from us (I knew a few/most of them), and we were pretty much directly under the fireworks display. Easy stumbling distance to all the pubs and entertainment! Utter fluke! It was "Here's some accommodation that someone's cancelled out of. Do you want it?" YEAH! Thanks!Pete, if you are thinking about using them for IOM TT, they were bloody expensive.
On the IOM web page there is a forum, & within that there is an accommodation section. Put out you needs & you will get responses.
We (4 of us) got a house last minute when other free accommodation fell through, for roughly 33 pounds per night & she loaned us her car for the price of insurance, 30 pounds for 9 days. So I reckon we did well.
Flights you should be able to get under $2500 return
It's the expenses on the Isle of Man that get you, I reckon I spent 100 pounds a day on grog & food lol
Give me a call if you like
