I was also advised by my RE that its risky to send embryos, as there is always a chance something will happen in transit, so it depends on how you weigh things. If you are working with limited quantities of embryos/sperm/eggs etc you may want to pay the extra to travel to them. Otherwise if you can assume the risk of possibly going through another IVF cycle to recreate your embryo bank in the unlikely event then go for it. I think in our case we will just save the airmiles and fly back to Edmonton and visit friends etc each time. Yes its costly but maybe not as costly as losing them and paying another cycle...
I guess one question to ask the shipping company is what insurance they have for this kind of thing. If they lose them, will they pay your next cycle and related costs? How do they track their cargo etc.
