Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Any ideas on how to get a ski bag to Lech for less than £130

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
As the title says, theres no room on the flight for my skis so looks like Ill have to hire in Lech which seems rather pricey.

Tried a few of the ski bag couriers, sendmybag looked good and the online quote came in at about £80 but then they added loads of hidden charges and it came in at about £135. I certainly wouldnt recommend these it seemed like they just made it up as all the charges were completly different to whats quoted in theur T&Cs.

So, has anyone any ideas on how I can get my bag there for less? Or failing that any tips for ski rental companies over there?

thanks

I've used parcel2go.uk to St Anton for similar reasons. I think it was a bit cheaper, but not much if booked last minute (as this one was). If you've time for a 7 day delivery, you should be able to get it significantly cheaper

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

Could be a bit of a gamble and very cheeky but maybe see if somebody on the flight would put your skis in with theirs? throw them a few quid. Probelem is you're stuck unless somebody can take the skis back with them if you've a lift to the airport.

try DB SCHENKER.
proper courier and good value. We normally use DHL but their special solutions division quoted me £1295 for my latest parcel (I asked why and they said, oh we just book through someone else).

Lufthansa recommended DB Schenkere. Same Parcel £119.

Not skis and sent air cargo to Asia
