When booking, ask your banger rally company for details of where the evening venues are. Try to book local to this as to stop to far from the evening meet can cost a lot in taxi fairs. Ask what arrangements have been made or what they recommend.

Most banger rally firms will have a list of local accommodation to suit all budgets. Be wherry of any firm which host evening meet venue in there accommodation/hotel. If they do make sure the it suitable and in the hart of the advertised destination.

If they are out of town they can be disappointing. You don’t want to find yourselves 10 miles out in an etap next to some industrial estate just because they got a deal.  

(Also there may not be other local accommodation options).
