Second time we went to Altinkum, paid excess baggage, cost £165 but was well worth it to take everything we wanted, I was happy enough as it was a one off and I really wanted everything I took so all in all - happy!!! We had massive hold alls with everything in them and no objections from the airline if excess was paid, that was with Onur Air, they are not too bad per Kg extra however be careful as some airlines pricey enough!!!
I think Sara is right. My friend did exactly that with 8 cases a few weeks ago. I wish I had thought of that instead of the £1,500 I paid in shipping then, the bung at the other end even though I had no electricals!!!.
British Airways great value for transporting extra cases, however in NI, we would have to hog it all down to Dublin or over to the mainland to get BA, and then we would be hit from Belfast for excess. Bit of a bummer!!!!
