When to Commit?

It is easy to talk about going to Oktoberfest, but the hard part is committing. We understand there are lots of factors; timing, money, family, vacation availability. We have all faced those issues. At some point you must make a commitment though. So when should that be?

The obvious answer is "as soon as possible". Two key items drive the decision from a timing standpoint. The first is airline reservations and the second is hotel reservations. Let's attack the hotel issue first. If you travel with Oktoberfest Visits, we have you covered. Our team stays at the Hotel Alfa, and we already have rooms reserved.

Now, what about getting to Munich? That is the infamous $65,000 question. Once you decide to go, you need to decide how much you are comfortable with paying for airfare. Someone will always pay more and someone will always pay less. Once you decide on a price.... Go for it. Whether it is actually paying with your hard earned dollars or using mileage, as long as you are comfortable with the decision, it is the right decision.

To start thinking about Oktoberfest 2015. While it may seem like a long time from now, there is plenty of planning you need to be managing. Things like:

-Flight Reservations (especially if using frequent flyer mileage)
-Vacation Time
-Your Itinerary
-Hotel Reservations
-Go on your own or with Oktoberfest Visits

Another reason to go to Oktoberfest and drink bier...

I always knew something was just inherently right about bier. Everyday another study confirms it, and for those of us that are not 30-something anymore, drink up.

The Blog has been quiet.....

I know, this is an off year, but Bier should never take a holiday.

I believe that Alcoholische and Betrunken were planning on going this year. If this is true, lets hear from them and start living vicariously through their experiences.

Prost !
