UK-based Luggage Delivery Company has launched a luggage pickup and delivery service for travelers on flights from the UK to Europe.
Customers can book the service online and have their luggage picked up from home and delivered to any address at their destination for prices starting from £29.99 ($46) for a small bag delivered from the UK to France.
Users of the service can also track their luggage in real time on the company’s website and also receive SMS and telephone alerts.
The launch of this Europe-wide door-to-door luggage delivery service comes as European airlines have been tightening baggage limits and even introducing special fares for passengers traveling with just carry-on luggage.
This service can even benefit travelers who begin their trips with an international flight from the US to the UK if they’re planning on staying in the UK for a few days or more. Most international flights still allow one piece of complementary checked luggage – but subsequent flights within Europe may not.
Being able to have a delivery service pick your luggage up at your hotel and deliver it to your next European destination saves the expense of airline luggage fees – and eliminates the hassle of getting your luggage to and from the airports.
