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. You will save the time spent at the check-in counters at the airport, avoid the hassle of carrying your luggage around and keep your 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 and it can be upgraded to higher coverage, based on your needs. 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.
