Excess Baggage, the world’s leading provider in baggage shipping services has urged air passengers to make use of its services this summer. The call follows on from results collected by price comparison website Kelkoo, which stated that excess baggage charges for flights are set to rise to £1million a day during the summertime.

Kelkoo’s survey found that a total of £186million was spent on excess baggage fees in 2011. A third of those that took part in the survey travelled on low cost airlines and these charges accounted for almost half of the full figure. In order to avoid similar and higher charges this year, Excess Baggage has called for people to make use of its baggage shipping services in order to ship large amounts of luggage to holiday destinations. Around one in ten of the people surveyed by Kelkoo said they’d never use the same airline again due to the baggage fees they were presented with,

Last year, people exceeded airline baggage restrictions by around 3.5kg (7lb 11oz) which cost passengers up to £13.20 if travelling with a budget airline. For those travelling on scheduled flights the costs were slightly reduced at £7.46 and those on chartered flights paid the lesser charge of £7.15.

Excess Baggage Company offer low-priced baggage shipping fees which could actually help to save air passengers a considerable amount of money in 2012. Shipping belongings to over 300 countries shows that no location is off the map. Excess Baggage also offer a door-to-port and door-to-door service to make the experience all the more convenient.

Excess Baggage is able to ship luggage by sea or air and has well over twenty years’ experience in the business of worldwide delivery including large scale shipping to Australia and shipping to the US. Those booking their summer holidays now should head online to apply for a free quote on the official Excess Baggage website to arrange their luggage shipping in advance.
