If you are spending your first night in a hotel before the trip really begin, you might be able to have the hotel agree to hold the box until you return.  

Otherwise, try to find a local bike shop as they are more likely than any other business to be willing to store it for you.

In any event have the hotel's or shop's agreement in advance.

Wanderingwheels' suggestion is a good one.  I would further suggest you contact a bike shop at your final destination before you leave and get their agreement to pack and ship your bike and get firm timing and cost numbers for the service.  Walking cold into a strange bike shop and expecting prompt service and reasonable cost doesn't leave you much negotiating room.

Also, find out how far the airport is from the bike shop and how you can get there.  A long taxi ride to the airport could cost more than shipping your bike!

You can easily double up and mount both a rack and fenders using the same set of rear dropout (or fork)
 eyelets.  I've done it on two bikes with no problems.

It's not clear what you want to insure. Do you want health and accident insurance to cover you if you are injured or get sick?  Or do you want insurance to cover theft or damage to your bicycle?
