Excess Baggage Company Introduce Express Overnight Luggage Services

Excess Baggage Company has developed a new overnight luggage service for shipments within the UK and Europe. The service is designed to allow airline passengers to travel light and send their baggage overnight, perfect for destinations such as luggage shipping to France.

It is particularly suited to airline passengers and those who would normally be charged a premium to take their excess baggage with them on board by airlines like Ryanair and Easyjet, as well as British Airways, Air France, KLM and Lufthansa. The charges made by airlines for luggage beyond the 20kg allowance ranges from £20/kg and up, depending on the airline carrier and route. An average suitcase from London to Dublin, above the allowance, would cost around €400 with the airline. Excess Baggage Company’s easy to use service allows the passenger to dispatch his luggage in advance for 24/48 hour door to door delivery on many routes for a fraction of this price.

Excess Baggage Company, www.Excess-Baggage.com have traditionally specialised in Intercontinental Baggage Moving to destinations like shipping to Australia, NZ, South Africa and SE Asia with shipping Freight to China as well, and it is hoped that this new product will help travellers who need to move their baggage at short notice door to door.
