ok, I did some very basic calculations. I took two of the cheapest hotel rooms for one night (boy & girl room), the very cheapest rental car for 2 days (drive down Friday evening and return late Sunday night), divided that by 4 (@H, @Simon, @Sarah, @Siobhan) and came up with 65€ per person, not counting the 5€ admission to the con. That doesn’t include gas or meals. I don’t know if increasing the number of people will decrease the price, since we might need more hotel rooms and a bigger car. But attached are my beginning calculations, courtesy of Sixt and Hotels.com. (I priced driving down Friday evening and returning Saturday night).
You’ll notice I priced out the cheapest automatic transmission for the cars. That’s because (AMERICAN!), I can’t drive a manual transmission. I have been taught a number of times in my life, each time ending with “there’s nothing more I can teach you, you just have to practice now” followed by whisking away said manual transmission. So I can’t help drive, unless y’all want me to finally do my practicing that weekend
