Subject: do it yourself arrangements
Regarding traveling in the Spring and Fall there are some cities like Paris for instance, someone mentioned Paris?, that can be totally booked because of a fair, convention, etc....so if this happens having the tickets in hand, I would try to be out of that city if possible, for instance in the case of Paris , I would go to visit the Chateaux de la Loire, and then come into Paris, .....and I have done this, picked up the car right at the airport ....

In Europe everything is so close that you can always visit some other place first and then come to that city after the fair,or convention is over. The French Tourism Office has a list of the days when Paris is full, almost full, and when there are plenty of free rooms...Graziella Miami Beach...
