    As an aside, if you are thinking of travelling to the away Davos game, you can fly via Dublin to Zurich for around £220.
    Then travel from Zurich to Davos plus hotels etc. Would imagine it would be quite expensive compared to travelling to watch the away Liberec game in comparison, in total around £500 I'd say.

    Quite correct, I'd forgotten the game was so early. Busses run until 9pm back to Prague so it would be do-able.

    Or you could go via Luton for just over £50.... then change to the ICE train to Davos which is a great journey..... then back to Zurich ready to fly to Prague.....

    Thanks for that information that bus runs up to 9-00pm. Let's get it booked then.

    Well I didn't see that coming! Thought I had planned everything out well; booked hotel in Davos, flights from Luton to Zurich, Prague to Stansted, then went back to Kayak to book a car they quoted at £185 only to find that when you click the link it opens up the car hire site quoting over £900!!! I think £850 is the cheapest for 4 days! Well that wasn't helpful. Guess hire companies don't want you picking up in one country and dropping off in another?

    Now looking at going back to Zurich for yet another flight! Trains too expensive and bus takes 13hrs - change with an 1hr 30mins wait at 1am in the morning.

    I won't forget the car hire trick if I do this again!

    Have you guys seen the rink in Davos? Do an image search for Vaillant Arena Davos. It is pretty spectacular.

    Just a heads up, flights getting more expensive through expedia/travel republic as days go bye.
    Any devils fans staying in Prauge for the Liberec game?

    Glad that I went ahead and sorted out my trip to Davos as Red Army Travel have announced on Twitter that they are not able to arrange trips to Davos and Liberec.

    I am hoping that all the fans making the trip are able to get tickets. Fingers crossed.

    My above post is in no way meant as a criticism of Red Army travel as they do an amazing job. It is just to let people know that they will have to sort themselves out for trips to the aforementioned games.

    So the bus company operating from Cerny Most > Liberec has a nice English website at: https://www.studentagency.eu/en/

    I can't stress this strongly enough - YOU WILL NEED TO BOOK THE BUS TICKETS IN ADVANCE! Mostly of the time the busses are full/90% on journeys between Czech cities. Tickets are avaliable about 2 months in advance (currently up to 3 August).

    As you'll see on the website, they're pretty plentiful and cheap at €7.80 round trip!

    So how is everyone getting on organising things? The costs to get to Prague seem steep, anyone found anything cheap?

    Flight to Zurich cheap - car hire steep! Hotel ok. Have to fly Zurich to Prague - a little more expensive. Car hire cheap (4 days £20 cheaper than 1 day in Zurich! No hotel booked yet but hope to stay with friends for 2 of the 3 nights. Flight back steep! BH I guess.

    Think you will find that the more interest/enquiries shown on travel websites about flights and hotel
    Accommodation will bump up the costs. Especially as time goes on.
