    The same model with different suffix is widely available, and some suppliers able to post. But can't find if it is very different

    Be careful buying online. A cheap trick is to sell these tools body only, no battery no charger. Either item can cost more than the tool itself.

    Couple of days ago I was given one for free. No battery, no charger, no value.

    She may have to jump through a few hoops and have some fun & games at the post office with sending lithium cells internationally.
    It's not impossible, but trying to make heads or tails of the Royal Mail allowed / restricted or prohibited lists isn't easy.

    Surely checked luggage on the 'plane is cheaper than postage? Or is that too obvious?

    Not normally no - but it's gotta be less hassle and cost than posting a drill?

    Good to know.
    But she may be too busy with her mum. Her dad passed a while ago so this trip is to be with her.
    Me asking for a drill may be pushing my luck.
