Violins can also be transported in the cabin if their maximum dimensions do not exceed 30 cm x 30 cm x 100 cm.
Celtic harps, on the other hand, can only be transported in the cargo hold and their dimensions cannot exceed 1.25m x 0.25m x 0.85 m. The extra fee applied for musical instruments starts at €40.
Ship your items instead
Shipping a musical instrument or shipping sports equipment instead of taking it on the plane might be the best solution for those who want to travel on a budget. Eurosender can prepare a tailored offer to accommodate your needs.
Flybe pet policy
When it comes to taking pets on the plane, Flybe sets certain restrictions, which depend on the type and size of the pet and also on the route the traveller is flying to. The animal (only dogs, cats and ferrets) can travel in the cargo hold of the airplane.
Alternative to airline baggage fees – Eurosender
Choosing a low-cost airline is a good option when travelling on a budget. However, the flight costs can significantly increase if you have many items that you want to take with you. The fees for extra-baggage, for oversized or overweight baggage, can add up quickly and turn a cheap flight ticket into a rather expensive one.
Eurosender provides an alternative by offering access to affordable shipping services. You will save the time that is otherwise spent at the check-in counters at the airport, avoid the hassle of carrying your luggage around and keep your travel costs low. The services are dedicated to people who go on business trips, study abroad or simply go on vacation.
Every shipment has a basic insurance coverage included in the price of the shipping while the coverage, should you so require, can also be higher. We only work with the most reputable logistics providers in Europe, so you can rest assured that your belongings are in good hands. The door-to-door shipping service gives you the convenience of travelling light without breaking the bank.
