Using a baggage moving firm to send heavy luggage abroad could be a great move for those on cheap flights to Australia keen to avoid extra travel charges.
The firms’ new overnight luggage service will be rolled out in the UK and Europe but tourists on cheap flights to far flung places could use Excess Baggage’s existing services for both south east Asia and Australia.
“We predict a significant switch to shipping baggage door-to-door as passengers and airlines reap the cost and service benefits of moving luggage hassle free,” said the firm’s chairman David Elliott.
Such a service may be particularly useful for those taking cheap flights to Australia that include a change or stop, as it avoids any issues with lost baggage.
