    My friend's daughter has been working in Birmingham for some time and is due to fly back to Portugal on Jan 18th.

    Apparently they want a small fortune to fly her luggage with her.

    My friend asked me IF I was in England and returning to Portugal could I help.

    I can't but I said I would ask on here if anyone was going down to Portugal from the Birmingham area and could help her.

    Not wishing to put a 'damper' on this but please ensure that WHOEVER takes the luggage is fully aware of what is in it - ideally they should look through it - if they then get stopped by customs for a routine check will help smooth the process if they know exactly what's in it and there are no surprises .... not 'illegal' ones ... but 'naughty' ones!!! :Laughing:

    I must say I am quite surprised to find that there are one or two members here who seem to believe that there are Funsters who need to be advised to check the contents of a suitcase before they take it on board their van for someone else.

    It seems to me to be rather like advising Funsters to breathe or eat food... :Wink:

    P'S. This bloody updated Chrome browser doesn't scroll down to the Tahoma font... grrrrrrrrrrr

    Thanks for the info...

    Not sure a whole pallet would be needed for one suitcase!

    When you've helped JJ out, I've got a couple of suitcases to come to Manchester from Columbia.

    You need to take a case out with you for me too if possible and meet a man called Miguel in a dark room with his mates. Just swop the cases for me please. It's all legit :Wink:

    JJ not coming your way so not much good to you, I do remember watching a programme about a company who would fly students suitcases all over for them a lot cheaper than the airlines would, maybe another funster will know the name.

    Good luck

    JJ I just typed in student luggage and found a few sites here is the one I was thinking of.

    http://www.unibaggage.com/

    I'm sure they don't have to be at Uni

    Ah!

    I see my friend's daughter Iris has signed onto Fun.

    Funsters (bless you all) are so eagar to help that the original request for help can get all muddled.

    I have no doubt there are many, many ways of sending luggage from the UK to Portugal.

    I was just wondering if any Funster was about to make the trip and could help actually taking it.
