So all you need to go by plane is a £200 Peli case on top of your air fares. Great
That and the handling charges for firearms. With Easyjet I think that's £25 each way.
You have to weigh it up against car/s or van, 2000 miles of fuel and ferry costs. Given that the flight costs would be £100 or less, it's not exactly a deal breaker. Van hire would be expensive. And there's not many motor's that can fit 4 people and guns and a few days kit in. My 3 series was about maxed out with 3 people. Doing the middle of Germany cost about £180 per head for travel expenses, that's for the 800 miles + run around driving and ferry. The advantage was we saved on car hire. But you'd burn say 2000 miles of fuel, so it would be more like £300 to drive with ferry, 3 in a car, per head.
I'm sure you could borrow a peli if push came to shove. I was 1/2 thinking of loaning mine out at £25 a week if I wasn't using them. Got two.
