Only doing the CT test and will be travelling independently. £600 flight and £300 accommodation. What's the cost of the TC package?
Didn't look at all the details, but the 14 night one including hotels, flights, tickets, a few special events and babysitting was £4,000 per person.

Looking at ticket prices in CT last time were around £7 pp pd.

Canny profit like.

Someone else on the trip advisor thread reckons that it might be a scam as can only be found on an obscure link and if it was true, then all the main tour companies would be all owa it by now.

I can cancel my accommodation, so wait and see....

What flight and digs are you using?
Outbound
Tue, 31 Dec 2019
all times are local

QATAR Airways

11:10 LGW - CPT via DOH

Return
Sat, 11 Jan 2020
QATAR Airways

12:35 CPT - LHR via DOH

Got me eye on these. Long stop in Qatar but when I flew to Sri Lanka I only gave myself a two hour stopover in Bahrain, my flight from LHR was delayed and I got on my connection with minutes to spare. Would have had to wait another 24 hours if I'd missed it. You can knock a few hours off the return stopover if you're willing to pay another £70.

Accommodation is at 106 on Adderley (next to CT train station). £322 for 11 nights.

Thought about staying at the Happy Rhino but the reviews are dreadful.

It's shit that the Barmy Army have taken down their forum, people used to club together via that.

I can't find that email address but have asked another lad from the 09 trip if he has it. Hopefully he's still alive and kicking like!
I think they would prefer any newbies to buy their travel off them tho rather than latching on to the regular lads that do it themselves and dish out the Gen

And now we're stuck with this place. :)

I think the sad thing about the BA is that it's became everything that it used to be against.
Aye mate.
It’s a Corporate Business now in a big way

Yep it was class for first timers. If it hadn't been for that and George we'd have done package tours for our first view.

My ITKs still think it's Centurion Boxing Day and PE mid-Jan btw.

Anyone know how easy/difficult it is to get tickets for the Cape Town test?
Piece of piss . Just get the SA ticket website into your favourites and keep checking for when they are on sale.
Purchase when they are and print at home.

Flight booked, £520 return. Out 31st Dec via Zurich and 16 hours, back 10th Jan via Vienna and 20 hours coming back.

Anyone ever stayed in a backpackers hostel in CT? Can get flight and accommodation for £600 if I stay in one of those places.

Anyone want booking on the Newlands brewery tour at 10am on Saturday 4th (second days play). Lasts an hour so you'll miss the first half hours play. About a fiver a head with two complimentary beers and a few other tasters. Can't do it after a days play cos you have to be sober(ish).
