Excess Baggage Shipping Worldwide for Less
There are few things more frustrating than a delay at the check-in desk, when the airline clerk tells you your bags are too heavy for the class you booked. What to do next? You cannot afford an upgrade, everything you packed is essential, and the flight is leaving in twenty minutes time. You agree to pay the excess baggage fee and almost have a hernia when you discover how much it costs.
It does not have to be that way. With a little planning and Professional Freight Services by your side, you could cut your Melbourne excess baggage costs by up to 80%.
How the Excess Baggage System Works
Airlines limit facilities so they can fit in as many passengers as they can. This is why economy seats are narrow, why you have to force your bags into the overhead locker, and why they limit baggage weight. They also have to, because they may not take off if the load is too heavy. IATA regulations put them in a corner and they fight back by penalising overweight passengers.
Most airlines add penalties at the rate of 1% of ticket price per kilo. We do not think it fair to pay as much as $70 per kilogram. We want to save you as much as 80% of your excess baggage penalty.
