Shipping a suitcase on its own may not be allowed in some countries, and may result in extra fees. To ensure safe delivery, wrap the suitcase in plastic film and pack it in a sturdy cardboard box. An insufficiently-packed suitcase is not covered by insurance and releases the courier and Eurosender from any liability. For route-specific details, contact our support team via chat.


All our shipments are automatically insured!

Every shipment organised with us is automatically covered by basic insurance, at no extra cost. To ensure optimal protection when shipping your luggage ahead, we also offer additional insurance at a small price, which can be added during the order process. Please be aware that the insurance does not cover damages to the packaging material, so make sure to use a cardboard box as final packaging when shipping luggage internationally.

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 baggage with the lowest priority, meaning 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.
