Re: Hired van + ferry instead of air-travel

Just a thought ........

My nephew got a volvo off ebay for him self and 3 mates to go to the alps with 4 mountain bikes for a fortnight when they returned he put it back on ebay and got more back for it.

All 4 bikes were stripped of there wheels and went in the back.
