We will be staying at the Akti Hotel, which is actually at the bivouac. Only expensive rooms available at the moment though;

I spoke to Mary Kerr today, she said I can do the event on my national ACU licence but will need to pay 80 for medical insurance I think she said.

For those who are looking for a hotel, could be better if you could check with the Race Accommodation before you book one.
Most of the rooms have been pre booked for your convenience and whatever we suggest you, has been checked by us and the Municipality Tourist Office.

Hi there, I really am not familiar with your Federation policy.
Usually starting permissions have a cost, if repatriation is included.
The price sounds normal.

That's great, but the booking system is too much hassle. To fill out a form with credit card details including security code, then scan it and email or fax it, or pay with a bank transfer. It's too complicated when you can just go to booking.com and do it in less than 30 seconds (and they charge you when you cheque out, not before). Maybe next year you could sort out a more simple system which just requires an online booking where the card is not charged until arrival.

Outstanding Ollie! Some of us are flying in so if you need to get from the airport to the venue let me know and we can work something out.

It will be good fun!

Not willing to argue, but booking.com has a similar policy and does not even guarantee any mischarge for any credit card.
So far we looked everywhere and there is noone charging anything during the checkout, apart from mini bar and telephone charges.
In any case what we suggest is checked and quaranteed by us, hotel management is not our business, our aim was to make it easier for the competitors.

I know, I've been to the doctor and they have recommended to do as much of it as possible!

Sure, and any help is appreciated. But if the orga is going to offer hotel accomodation, it needs to be as simple as an online booking process, not printing forms, faxing then sending money by bank transfer (for which there is a fee to be paid for sending money in euros) or faxing credit card details.
