Im going to spend a couple of days at the Geneva show over the weekend 8th/9th March with Lin, to witness the Delta launch on behalf of Club Lancia Sport. If anyone else from whichever club is also attending lets meet up and at least have dinner together.

I've been musing over the idea of going to Geneva for a week or two - but that weekend looks horribly expensive on flights and accomodation - the cheapest package just for me is working out to around 300.  Some time in the following week looks cheaper, so I may still be tempted...

If you go mid-week out of Birmingham with BMI baby.com and can put up with booking via their complicated web-site a return fare should be around 60.00. Accomodation is avaliable for around 100euro a night, I suggest staying south of the city in the French area, say at a Novotel. The exhibition is right next to the airport with a good connection so you could take a 06.30 flight and be back same day if you wanted. Entry by our standards is cheap at around 14SF or seven pounds. See you there

BMI doesn't appear to do flights which allow a day trip, but flying out one day (arriving about 1.30) and flying back the next (about 2), and staying overnight is possible, and costs around 75 all in, midweek.  Looks like there is plenty of cheap hotel accomodation in the city centre and also a Novotel and Campanile in the vicinity.

Annoying site - couldn't get it to do anything other than play bad music, and blitz me with fuzzy pictures and chunks of no doubt flowery Italian.  Pictures, specs?  No chance.

Anyway - good news.  The flights are booked, and the hotel sorted - along with Steve and Andy I'll be at Geneva on the 12th and 13th.  Hopefully we'll see you there... Grin

Flying from Birmingham to Geneva on BMI Baby, which is about 70 return on the days we are flying, and staying in one of the Formule 1 basic hotel chains - 31 euros per 3 bed room. Probably a bit like youth hostelling...  There is also plenty of cheap accomodation in Geneva city centre (go to the Geneva Tourism website linked from the main motor show website) and the usual array of Campanile and Novotel type hotel chains.  Entry to the show is only about 7, so your main cost would be flying.  Easy Jet also fly to Geneva, Ryan Air don't.  Hope that lot helps!

Look for an ETAP rather than F1, that way you get the loo & shower in your room, we've used them frequently while travelling through France, thing is with F1 you share the loos And showers, & you have to keep a lower cheek pressed against the water button if you don't want the shower to keep stopping Shocked, I see the colonel is using an Etap at Southampton for the Gamma Meet. Highly recommended, not a bad continental breakfast either.

Yes thanks - Think I might do it in a day and go from Luton or Gatwick. Works out about 85 - 105 from what I can see.
