Just booked ticket, bed and flight.

As one of the car sharers told me that he likely can't come and I found
a cheap flight STR-FLR, I'll leave the car at home.

Maybe check the parking/garage costs with the hotel nevertheless, it
might be interesting for other people.

Yes, I have seen that after you pointing there. I didn't look at the
"where" as I knew where it is. :)

> We used to have a convention for that, which downs that to €15/day.

Yeah, but 15 * 8 is already 83% of my flight price. ;)

I guess it is rather uninteresting if you get a cheap flight and would
drive alone.

The calculation gets different if there are multiple people travelling
with you. Of course one has to consider car costs + fuel + highway costs
+ parking + the time/effort needed for that travel.

BTW, thanks again for making the booking much easier this year. I spent
a lot of time arranging room sharing with 3 other people in a nearby
hotel last year. This time, it was much quicker and less complicated due
to you organizing it for us all! :)
