I do not know if it is less expensive than a traditional full size hard case. I paid $80 US from Kennedy airport to Prague with online excess bagage check. It would have been $100 US if I checked the case at the airport.
But I had no problem with fitting it into cabs in Prague and later Barcelona. So I have that advantage over a larger case.
Thanks for your concern-all is well. My house was untouched-in fact I had more tree damage from the storm in October of 2012.
P.S. It takes me about 2 hrs to pack my bike. A person who is less preoccupied with minute details than I could probably cut down the time considerably!
