PACKING TIPS

How to pack your suitcase or travel bag for shipping?

Follow these easy recommendations to appropriately pack your bags and protect your suitcase from damages during transit.

Suitcases
  • Make sure the items inside cannot move during transit
  • Place the suitcase in a sturdy cardboard box
  • Remove any old tags and add the shipping label if needed
Sports and Duffle Bags
  • Soft bags must be safely packed inside a cardboard box
  • Fill the empty voids with cushioning materials to keep the items safe
  • Close and seal the package. Attach the shipping label if needed
While some courier companies accept suitcases for shipping, it is highly recommended to use cardboard boxes as the final packaging. Please bear in mind that for shipping routes that include the United Kingdom, Czech Republic, Poland, and/or Austria, your items should be packed directly on cardboard boxes since the couriers do not transport suitcases.

FAQs – Sending luggage in Europe or overseas

What is the cheapest way to ship luggage internationally?
The cheapest way to ship luggage internationally is by using the Standard Service. This service is available for sending your luggage domestically or internationally within Europe and can be quickly booked in just a few minutes through the booking engine above.
How much does it cost to ship a suitcase overseas?
The cost of shipping a suitcase domestically or overseas depends on your item's size, the origin and destination of your shipment, and the urgency you require. You can rest assured that we will always find you the most affordable solution available for sending your suitcase abroad. Our proprietary algorithm has access to over 150 million on-the-spot quotes offered by multiple logistics providers. Once you request a price, the system identifies the best suitcase shipping service in a matter of seconds.
How to send luggage ahead to my hotel?
Sending your luggage ahead to your hotel is very simple; all you need to do is fill out the consignee’s information with the hotel details when booking the delivery. Check our page about hotel deliveries for more details on how to input the information correctly. Before scheduling the delivery service, please inform the establishment’s reception to confirm they will accept the parcel and keep it for you. After the luggage courier service is booked and confirmed, you only need to pack your item according to our recommendations above and wait for the collection.
Can I ship excess baggage overseas with a courier service?
Yes, shipping your excess baggage overseas with a courier is often more affordable than paying the airline fees for extra luggage. Send your luggage a couple of days ahead to your hotel, and your belongings will be safely waiting for you when you arrive. At Eurosender, we can always find the most affordable international luggage shipping service for any route you may need. We cover more than 220 countries and territories worldwide, so you can send your luggage ahead to wherever your destination is.
How can I ship multiple pieces of luggage internationally?
During the booking process, you will be able to select the number of volumes you wish to send. Each item must be packed individually and will receive a separate tracking label and number. Follow our guidelines above on how to pack a suitcase or a bag to ensure your item will arrive safely at the destination.
Is it possible to send luggage using cargo transport?
Even though the Standard Service is the cheapest option if you have only a few pieces of luggage, Freight Transport might be more suitable if you need to send many suitcases overseas when relocating. Alternatively, if you are moving between European countries, you can also opt for our Van Delivery Service and have your belongings directly transported to your new home, without stop-overs. Our platform combines the logistics capabilities of our partners, so we can organise any shipping service you may need, be it small or bulky. When you need to send luggage by cargo or with the van service, get instant quotes directly in our booking tool.
Is it possible to send luggage ahead by plane without flying?
Even though most airlines offer the option of shipping unaccompanied luggage, the customer is usually charged an expensive fee for this service. Also, the airlines generally transport unaccompanied luggage with the lowest priority, meaning that it will travel whenever there is space on a plane, which is not necessarily the next flight out.
Alternatively, you can send your luggage by courier through Eurosender. We work with the best parcel and luggage shipping companies to offer a wide variety of delivery solutions, including Express Worldwide Delivery, with which you will get your item in 24-72h.
Is it cheaper to ship or check luggage?
Checking additional luggage with the airline company can cost you anything between 20-100€, depending on the size and weight of your item. If your suitcase is overweight, you may be looking at hefty fees charged per kg, which makes the price of your trip add up very quickly. On the other hand, the price for using a luggage courier service is more stable, and you can choose to send your item using a road transport solution which is much more affordable than via plane. Get a quote above and send your luggage ahead by courier without hustle.
