Hotels putting up prices!

This is with specific reference to Dublin, but it's bound to apply elsewhere. A few days ago, before the dates were announced, I booked two nights in a hotel in Dublin that shall remain nameless. Based on the rumours, I figured that there was bound to be a concert on July 24th, and maybe 25th as well - so those were the nights that I booked. My credit card was used to guarantee the booking but I wasn't charged any money, and can cancel at any time up to 24hrs before I'm supposed to arrive. The price? €89 per night, which is reasonable enough.

So, since the Dublin concert today was confirmed as being Fri 24th July, I checked the hotel for availability. Unsurprisingly, the exact same room now costs €165 per night, so I'm glad that I took a chance and booked in advance.

Anybody else noticed anything similar?

Yes. Just posted in the croke park thread that I booked flights from London to Dublin this morning and in a matter of HOURS they have jumped over £125...

I knew it would happen but I didn't think it would happen so soon after the announcement.

Don't worry baby, it's gonna be all right. Uncertainty can be a guiding light...
