Rental Tent Booking: Latest details

For info,

I've recently queried the process for booking Rental Tents (Location Tente) along the GR20, as I was initially frustrated by the booking system. The response from the PNRC site suggested that both the camping site and rental tent numbers needed to be indicated: e.g. For 5 rented tent spaces, you need to book:

Choisissez le nombre de personnes = 4
Couchage en bivouac = 4
Nbr location tente (2 places + matelas) = 4

This works, but please be aware that it now seems more expensive to use the Rental Tents than to us the Refuge (a change over posts from previous years in this Forum). The cost per person/night (e.g. d'Ortu di u Piobbu):

Refuge - €11
Camping (BYO Tents) - €6
Renta-Tent - €16

I post this because I'm surprised at the cost of renting a tent compared to using the Refuge, or especially bringing your own tent (I realise the rental tents are carried up on mule-back etc).

Can't wait for our trip in Jun/Jul....yes, the 5 of us will carry our own tent/tarp options.

ciao,

All,

Following some assistance from Michele, my comments above were a little premature. More info on the 'Begeries / Refuges' thread.

Apologies for the misinformation.
