Note: You are not permitted to upgrade a bag to a higher weight at the airport on the day of departure, excess fees will be applied to any weight over a guest’s personal allowance.

Aer Lingus Excess Baggage


If your baggage is overweight at the airport, you will be forced to pay excess baggage fees. These fees are priced per kilo and depend on your route. Excess baggage within Europe will cost €10 per extra kilo and for transatlantic flights, will cost €75 per bag.

Aer Lingus Exceptional Items


Sporting equipment can be checked into the aircraft’s hold when flying with Aer Lingus. However, items are limited to one per person and must not exceed 23kg in weight. Within Europe, sporting equipment can be carried for approximately €40 per item each way.


If on a transatlantic flight, sporting equipment may be carried as part of the free checked baggage allowance. If carried in addition, a fee of €75 per item will apply. These charges apply to bookings made online only. Adding such items at the airport will be significantly more expensive. For further information on sporting equipment, please see here.


Musical instruments can be carried by hand as cabin baggage, if within the size and weight limits. Larger items can be checked into the hold, as per sporting equipment.

My Baggage – Aer Lingus Baggage Alternative


Aer Lingus is an undeniably affordable travel option if you are travelling with a small amount of luggage off-peak. However, if you exceed the weight allowance, book baggage at the airport or travel during peak periods, you may face considerable extra charges.


Thankfully, that’s where My Baggage comes in.


My Baggage allows you to ship a massive 30kg/66lbs per suitcase or box at fantastic low rates. You’ll also have the option to pay extra for even heavier bags if you need to, and you can add as many items as you like to your booking. Shipping luggage with My Baggage allows you to bring more with you than if you were relying on a few checked pieces of baggage.


My Baggage provides a great low-cost alternative to airline baggage, with fast and convenient luggage shipping which allows you to travel hands-free. It means you’ll save yourself some time at the airport when you don’t have to check-in your bags, no waiting around at the luggage carousels on the other side and ultimately, one less thing to worry about whilst you travel. To give you that extra peace of mind, My Baggage offers £100 free compensation cover on every single shipment, which can be increased right up to the value of £1000 if you wish. Contact our customer support team if you have any questions!

Everything went as planned

Everything went as planned. I am happy that my daughter received her parcels at the University of Bath as planned before she arrives. The cost of this services was very affordable and I will use them again.

Grateful

This ended up being a blessing in disguise for our travel. We had all 3 of our flights rescheduled the day of international travel, had we not shipped our bags, we would be embarking on a 30 day journey with no luggage. The only comment non positive was the inability to definitely pinpoint the time of pickup.

Excellent service

After a Google search I came across My Baggage. The booking process was simple but took a bit of effort to complete the custom form. Option to select pick up & drop off dates. Arrived a day before the expected date. Seemed a bit expensive but overall worth it.
