I am planning to travel from Portugal to Estonia hitchhiking, but I need to get rid of my luggage before, which is a regular-sized suitcase. Does anyone have recommendations how I could send my luggage to Estonia by the cheapest option possible?

The arrival of the luggage is not very urgent.

    The cheapest way, as always, is to carry it, and walk to your destination. But that's probably not what you're looking for... and is one reason that price-shopping questions are off-topic here. – Flimzy Jun 4 '14 at 22:00
  • Also, shipping luggage isn't usually considered part of travel, and is thus probably off-topic despite being a price-shopping question. Even so,there are some similar questions on this site--have you searched to see if any of them provide a reasonable answer for you? – Flimzy Jun 4 '14 at 22:01

    @Flimzy I would disagree on shipping point. While it is unusual its not unheard of. – Karlson Jun 4 '14 at 22:36

    I think sending luggage ahead of travel is on-topic on a travel site. Price shopping may not be. Sending luggage ahead may or may not be cheaper than carrying it, depending on the luggage in question. – gerrit Jun 4 '14 at 23:06

    @Flimzy Shipping luggage ahead has become a regular part of my inner-European travels as it is often cheaper than taking it as extra luggage on low fare airlines. – Stockfisch Jun 4 '14 at 23:38

Have you checked Chronopost? In my experience it is among the cheapest international carriers operating in Portugal.

Portugal -> Estonia is about 42€ for 30 kg (60 x 40 x 40 cm).

Call them and they will even pick up your package / suitcase. Make sure that you close it properly (zipper is not enough, you will need tape or a lock to fit their guidelines).

  • @Stockfishch can you elaborate a bit more on your comment above "Shipping luggage ahead has become a regular part of my inner-European travels". I am very interested on this topic. How do you do it, and which companies do you use? – nsn Jun 5 '14 at 7:50
