It don’t have to be all scrums at the Rugby World Cup

Looking at the calendar, there are now only 5 weeks until the Rugby World Cup 2011 kicks off in New Zealand. As the date draws near, excitement takes over New Zealand as rugby fans in hopes of their national team lifting the World Cup at Eden Park start streaming into the country.

Usually, travelling to any city in New Zealand and looking for accommodation would not be a problem. However, considering that the country is bracing itself for an epic fan invasion, matters are quite different. It is well known that such popular sporting events cause hotels to be booked solid, expensive and even snooty. Fans book their accommodation months before-hand, and those who haven’t may expect coughing out a fortune or to be met by no-vacancy signs.

But all is not lost. Aspiring but slow-to-act fans, do not despair, as there are other short term accommodation options. In fact, once hooked onto this way of staying, you may be a permanent convert.

    This is such an interesting post, I’ve never heard of such rentals in NZ before. I’m always travelling between NZ and Australia and I’m always forced to book hotel rooms for my family and sometimes just myself. Glad to read about this and I just checked out and found that they have listings in Sydney too! Interesting and can’t wait to try it next time.

    • Hi there! Glad to be of help. Roomorama is indeed a great option – and travellers are able to live like a local even though they are far away from home!! Perfect:)
