Hi...i just sold a frame to someone in Germany...the problem is volumetric weight.....can be very expensive...not based on actual weight...but dimensions of the box then divided by 5000....I used parcels2go......www.parcels2go.com they use DHL etc and you can pay for insurance...eg £250 for £12.50......but and be warned....the headset on my frame was damaged in transit and it was a struggle to get the £25 from them......they have a list of things that are not covered...so email and ask explicitly if your bike will be covered and tell them exactly how you have packaged the bike and take pictures of the internal and external packaging....cos they asked for that and neither i or the receiver took any pics...hope that helps....alternatively...stick the bike in a bike box and take it over on easy jet and have a couple of days in France!!.....
