    Hello, I am flying from USA to Germany and none of the airlines I can afford accept tortoises and the pet movers I contacted are 2-4 thousand dollars! Does anyone know of someone cheap who could transport my tortoise or have any ideas? I have to leave soon.

    Agreed. Do not trust UPS, FED EX or any of the package moving companies. They are exactly that. Package movers. I know because I work for one

    Some countries have very strict rules about bringing in animals. Be sure you know them BEFORE you travel with the animal.
