What to consider when shipping parcels and luggage home from airports

Shipping to or from an airport requires a little preparation beforehand. Consider the following guidelines when shipping parcels and luggage from an airport:

They may also need to pack the parcel for you. Check our packing guidelines for tips on how to pack various items.
  • Provide accurate address details – Insert all address information when booking the shipment, including the terminal and exact location inside the airport. Provide the contact details of a staff member at the airport who can help with the shipment.

FAQ about how to have parcels and luggage collected and delivered to airports

How can I arrange another parcel collection from the airport? The courier could not find the pick-up point.
One of the most common reasons for unsuccessful collection or delivery attempts is paid parking, the price of which is not included in your order amount. Although at some airports the driver is allowed to park for free for 5-10 minutes, airports are busy places, and it could be difficult to collect your parcel in such a short time. If this happens, a new collection attempt can be arranged easily with Eurosender. Simply contact our customer support team as soon as possible to arrange a new collection date.
What to do if I can’t be at the airport for my parcel collection or delivery
If you are unable to be present during airport parcel collection or delivery, there are a number of ways to arrange an alternative person to handle your shipment:
  • Leave your package at the airport lost and office - Contact the airport lost and found office or the airline and arrange for your parcel or luggage to be collected from their office. Make sure you agree on a collection date and provide the contact details of a staff member who can give the items to the courier.
  • Leave your package at the reception of the hotel closest to the airport - The staff of hotels located near airports are used to this kind of situation. The main thing is that the delivery company can contact the person to whom you left your package or suitcase on the day of collection. Be sure to indicate the hotel address.
  • Leave your package at one of the car rental desks located at the airport - Ask the rental company employees to hand over your package to the courier. You will probably be surprised to find that the airport staff are very helpful.
