My Baggage – Airline Baggage Alternative

Carrying baggage with you on your Air New Zealand flight is an easy, cost-effective option if you are travelling with a small amount of luggage. However, if you exceed the weight allowance or size restrictions, or if you need to add an extra bag to your flight, you could face considerable extra charges.

It means you’ll save yourself some time at the airport – you won’t have any bags to check-in, you won’t have to wait around at the luggage carousels at your destination and ultimately, it’ll be one less thing to worry about whilst you travel.

My Baggage allows you to ship a massive 30kg/66lbs suitcase or box at fantastic low rates. You can get a free instant quote online to see exactly how cost-effective our service can be. 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.

Exceeded expectations

I just used MyBaggage to ship an heirloom package of items from Canada to my daughter in Ireland. I followed my package progress online and could not believe how fast it moved from the pickup at my house in Alberta. In less than a day it had moved thru Saskatchewan and Manitoba and down to Cincinnati in the USA. From there it moved to the UK, then to Ireland, thru all the customs, and my daughter received it in 3 1/2 days. I'm amazed and more than happy, they provided online email support to every question promptly and their system allowed me to provide custom details and print forms to apply to the package. I love the fantastic service they provided which exceeded my expectations.

They're pretty good and do it quite well

They're pretty good and do it quite well. I've used the service multiple times now within the UK and out of the UK as well, and they've been good. It's a really helpful service when you have to ship stuff internationally, and they have pre-designed templates for all the customs forms.

This company is AMAZING!!

This company is AMAZING!!! I was moving back to the States from London and shipped 2 large boxes and a suitcase for much cheaper than paying for extra luggage at the airport! Not only was it more cost effective but they made the customs forms and scheduling for pick up and delivery, extremely easy! They picked up my belongings on time and they were delivered to my front door in America in 3 days! Everything was intact and I tracked my belongings every step of the way. I will tell everyone I know about this company!!
