Shipping luggage to the island
Hi,

I'm hoping to send some luggage to our homestay accommodation ahead of arriving this year - I know some people do this most years for ease.

Does anybody have experience of doing this? If so which courier did you use, approx. costs/issues etc.?

Many Thanks.

I haven't done this for a few years, but used to use the Post Offce/Royal Mail without problems

About thirty quid each way

Worth planning location & opening times of Post Offices on the Island for your return trip

Have had them delivered by the postman for a few years for the guys who stay with us. They leave me some cash and i send them back the day after they go and its about £20 and there are always a lot of other boxes at the Post Office
