Hurt on crutches. Need luggage help

I slipped on some mud in the dolomites yesterday and badly sprained my ankle. I am on crutches and my daughter is assisting me. But she cannot handle me and all of our luggage. We need help getting it to a water taxi to get to the airport tomorrow. Does anybody have any suggestions? We are not staying in a hotel but rather at rental.

Funny you should say that I have noticed that and the company is based in California hmmm. Plus they clearly state that they are not licenced guides or travel assistants but when you pre book with them then they are clearly breaching the regional. Law of 2002 by providing services at the station and airport... Hiring a local. I am a local and I see someone lost or looking puzzled over I map I stop and help... For free!!!!!

You can hire a porter, but you will of course need to know exactly where the water taxi will be collecting you, so that they can give you a price . See https:/…porters.htm (and https://trasbagagli.it/en/main).

It may be expensive but you should be able to claim the cost against your travel insurance, as it counts as assistance needed as a result of an accident - provided of course that you produce the medical certificate to your insurance company. The same may go for the water taxi itself - have you already contacted your insurer?
