Otherwise I'd have to spend another $300 to buy a traveling case.

Shipping UPS ground would cost about $150 round trip, but I have a bike event here 2 days before my trip.

Everything's so expensive

Yes. You must be new to travelling with your bicycle.

Here's some light reading for you. Some of this info may be out of date, you'll want to check the actual airline websites for the most up to date info.
