April and October price hike question

Hi, I know I have a similar thread started but wanted to catch more people in the know with this title.

Ok I can't look up October 2013 prices yet (keen for YMCA Salisbury) and have emailed them and they have said generally more expensive but won't say by how much.

From everything I have read on these forums, many people are talking about hotel prices doubling!! Which really eliminates that option for us.

BUT the prices for April 2013 are up on their site, and they mention a $100hk surplus for a week and $350hk surplus for another week in April. So worse case would be 350x 5 nights we are there = $1750hk more.

From peoples experience is this similar to what I could expect mid October? As our only other option is November and in November our flights increase by $2200hk. So even if the accommodation is cheaper, the flights are more expensive so what's the point!

Obviously though if the hotels do indeed double their prices then November would be best choice.

So, those in the know - are Oct surcharges generally same as April, or more?

It's my 30th birthday mid Oct and would prefer to be away then. (saves mrs hosting a party at home! ;)

I don't think anyone can tell you at this point. Hotel prices go up and down according to supply-and-demand so it's not an exact science.

Perhaps you can see if November flight prices will eventually go down. Airlines run promotions for fares seasonally.

It's a bit early to judge airfares. Airlines often have unforseen sales.
