I'm off to Mallorca in a few weeks and looking to take my own bike this time, rather than hire. The flight is sorted, along with a bike box alan, however the problem is transporting the bike box from the airport to the villa. With a toddler we need one back seat, so this rules out most cars. The next step up is to a people carrier or van such as a Partner or Berlingo, but this is an extra £600, for which I might as well hire a Dogma F12 for the week! There is no luggage storage available at the airport for the box, and I can't find hire companies which will provide roof racks or bike racks. My last option is to look at a soft rack - has anyone any experience of transporting a bike box on a soft rack? I can't see any reason why it wouldn't work, and the load is within the recommendations, but do hire car companies take a dim view when they see you fit one? Any other ideas?
