OK here's the dilemma:
We are travelling for 5 weeks end Oct.through early Dec. on Delta from USA to Dublin, continuing to UK, then to Rome on Easy-jet. There we embark on a cruise for 14 days ending with a flight to Santorini(returning to Athens and from there on Delta back to USA. We are well able to keep our 2 check-in cases @ 20 Kilos each that every airline we will be using EXCEPT Ryanair allows. We also will have 1 "carry-on" each @ the 10 Kilo limit.
However, we want to fly Ryanair Dublin to Leeds Bradford, UK & I know Ryanair has a 15 K limit per person. We would end up paying 150 pounds for the 10 kilos we have in "excess" weight for our checked cases! I cannot find a flight to our UK destination for anywhere near as cheap as Ryanair!
I try to pack sensibly, but we have so many different climates during the 5 weeks-it's a problem!
Is it possible to post the "excess" 10 Kilos via Fed-ex, UPS, or Irish postal system to our friend's home in the UK? Surely it costs less than 150 pounds!
We will be back in Dublin on a Sunday,for our flight to UK on the Mon. at 6:35 AM. I think everything will be closed on the Sunday,unless someone knows of a service available?
But we will be in Clifden on Friday, 6th Nov. @ Station House Hotel. We could fix up a box to Post there.
Sorry for such a long post..Please help!
