staying so long?

My DN is being christened abroad at the end of august and I have been asked to be godmother. My SIL has arranged beds for all of us going (about 8) at various members of her family as she doesn't have the space.

Due to it being a bank holiday and during the summer holidays the tickets are extortionate around that weekend so its a case of going for 6 days or not at all. My SIL is to polite to say no even if it is a problem and I'm worried that such a long stay is unfair on the family member.

If it makes a difference this is just myself and DD the other members of the family will be booking themselves so I'm unsure how long they are staying for.

So AIBU?

Could you perhaps stay at a hotel for part of the time, or a different relative? Move about a bit? It is quite a long time if you don't know the relatives well yourself.

Can you find alternative accommodation for yourself for the time beyond what they are envisaging? Of course, depending on what there is available at destination, the additional outlay might mean you don't actually save much money compared to the difference in flights. But by showing willing to fend for yourself, you're unlikely to be seen as an imposition.

No chance of staying elsewhere as I was recently made redundant and staying with someone is the only way I could afford to go. I'd show my appreciation by helping with the tidying up and offering to cook and would stay out the way as much as possiable.
