Air travel couriers
First off hello my names Tres and I am pretty new around here. I kind of stumbled on to the site on accident, but I am totally hooked! I previously considered myself a pretty well seasoned traveler (Europe,Asia, Central America) but thanks to Boots N All I am really stuck on the idea of Round The World Travel...
So heres my much belated question that really has nothing to do with that entire schpeel...
I was in my local book store reading a guide book on planning a RTW trip and I noticed they mentioned Air Couriers as an option for getting really cheap tickets. I have herd through the grape vine of people actually doing this (giving up there baggage space for a free/highly subsidized ticket.)
Does anyone have any info on this? From most of my research I noticed most sites have membership fees? Anyone with experience?
I wouldn't spend too much money on a membership with one of those organizations without some good references.
Maybe someone else here has had a better experience?
Plus, I'd be a little iffy on carrying someone else's stuff accross international borders. I don't want to be the guy rotting in a Thai prison for drug smuggling.
I'd once encountered a website that worked the opposite way - hooking up people who wanted to move packages with people who already had tickets going that way, who would take the package for a fee. But of course, I can't find it now. Maybe it didn't work as well as expected.
