So hopefully covid will be over and done with early next year and EF can happen as normal. If it does I'm curious how much cash I should bring,  in my research it seems like Berlin prefers cash over cards so I want to have an idea of what is a reasonable amount to bring.
Depends on how long you're staying, how often you eat out, and how much you want to spend in the dealer's den. And whether you plan to stay beyond EF to do some touristy things in Berlin.

Though I've never had any trouble paying with a (UK) debit card. Chip and PIN and contactless are very common in the parts of the city I've visited. If you stay near the main hotel (and it's satellites) then you should be safe. The locals may not know or care much about our hobby, but the business have certainly noticed that collectively we're 'big spenders', and would like to make it as easy as possibly for us to spend our money with them.

Hard question to answer, depends on your individual spending habits. Berlin is fairly cheap on European standards, might be even cheaper than the states when it comes to food and stuff.

Real answer here is to get yourself a chip and PIN credit card that works in Europe so you can use ATMs, better than having loads of cash on you when you travel.

Reservations at the Estrel in the Eurofurence room block¹ are only available for registered attendees. Thus, hotel reservation starts after registration for the convention. It is not possible to reserve a room via the Estrel booking page for the time of Eurofurence.

Regarding overflow hotels, here are some options: https://www.eurofurence.org/EF26/hotel/overflow

We strongly recommend to choose a rate with a reasonable cancellation policy. Some venues hide those rates very well in their booking system, and this year has shown that some will not let you out of the contract even if almost all of the city is shut down due to the pandemic and the guest has no means to travel there. Pacta sunt servanda, they said...

Talking about the pandemic: we unfortunately do not have any estimation yet when reservations for EF26 will start in 2021, as it depends on how the situation develops. Obviously, we will send out an announcement via all of our channels as soon as have a date. We understand that everybody is fed up with the situation and is eager to return to normal (convention) life. We too! We are looking forward to a time when it is possible to have large gatherings again. Let's hope that time is "soon".

¹ there may be very few rooms available outside of our block via travel agencies, but read the fine print: those offers may not guarantee a room at the Estrel and might differ regarding cancellation policy or whether breakfast is included.

So if EF happens next year i plan on attending but if i understand correctly getting a room at the Estrel is like getting a room at the Westin for AC,if you're not fast then getting a room is almost impossible. I tried booking a room in advance however the weekend of EF seems to be blocked for reservations so I likely won't be getting a room at the Estrel when i go. That being said,are there any hotels that are within walking distance of the Estrel? I'm also a fursuiter with limited vision and no handler so the less i have to walk to get between the convention and my hotel the better.

Hi guys, I never saw a recording of the EF 21 Guestshow by the Swiss PPS-Team.

Is there a recording somewhere?

Sorry to hear that you seem to be waiting for a reply for so long.
Unfortunately non of the departments can find any support ticket in your name in the system.

All convention tickets are exclusively sold through our online system, once it goes live.
This will be announced ahead of time. There are no early access bookings, no group bookings and no special rates available.

Regarding Visa questions, please refer to the FAQ unter der aforementioned link https://help.eurofurence.org/faq
(Section: Do I need a VISA) (EF will not issue invitations. Please use a regular tourist visa process.)

Regarding travel advice, please refer to travel guides online and/or your local travel agency.
EF staff can unfortunately not offer personal travel advisors, or business advice.

On the positive side, there are literally thousands of furries from all over the world in this community that have been to EF before.
If you post your questions in the forum, or use one of the many telegram groups, it is quite likely that you will get good advice.

Best regards,
Mystifur

Hi

You can contact the registration team via this form:
Contact Eurofurence

Choose "Registration" in the drop-down menu and fill in the rest of the form.

Due to the current world events, most departments are not fully staffed.
 - so it might take a bit longer than usual to get a reply.

hello!
thanks for your reply but, unfortunely, we need a direct contact with someone because we've tried that option before since january with absolute cero responses from anyone.

if you know someone who i can talk via MP or similar please tell me as soon as possible.

 have a nice day!
