Alternative to airline baggage fees – Eurosender
Choosing a low-cost airline is a good option when travelling on a budget. However, the 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 serious expense.
Eurosender provides an alternative by offering access to affordable shipping services.

The services are dedicated to people going on business trips as well as to people who study abroad or simply go on vacation.

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.
