I will definitely do a better research on a car rental companies next time. As I believe we payed a lot as for a one day and 450 miles
Fair point on me being set on getting a car. I wanted to be sure that I will be on time where I need to be. And travel comfortably. Nonetheless, road trips are not eco-friendly but always a good time
Although, we ended up paying £190 / 95 each... It's £15 more than a cheapest train ticket for that day. @PhilDAS what kind of options specifically you're talking about?
TFC starts in Brussels just in three weeks time. I thought there couldn't be a better reason for a long weekend in a saddle.
I will be doing it on a road bike, hopefully I will cover the distance from London to Brussels in two days. I assume that medium size frame bag and deep jersey pockets is enough space for all my needs (sleeping in a hostels). But any advice is more than welcome!
Unfortunately medium size Rapha frame bags are sold out, hence I am trying my luck here.
Anyway, please let me know if you have any similar good quality frame bag that fits these requirements:
• Up to 47cm in length
• Straps are not fixed to the bag therefore can be swapped
Can collect in London
Loads of useful information here. Hopefully it will help someone in a future like it helped me this time. Many thanks to everyone
Found a friend who needs to collect the bike (Alchemy!) from Leicester which is on a way to Manchester. We're spliting the bill – that doesn't hurt that much anymore. We ended up getting a car from drivy.co.uk. Journey should cost us around £150 (with £20 discount)
I was thinking the same. But the numbers are: Enterprise £155, Hertz £230
I checked Drivy – cheapest option is £165.
£62 for a car + £70 for distance (350 x £0.2) + £35 petrol
Zipcar starts from £195
Train is £90 + all the hassle trying to get to specific place which is 40mins drive from Manchester
