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. Thankfully, that’s where My Baggage comes in.

My Baggage provides a great, low-cost alternative to carrying bags on your flight. We offer fast and convenient international luggage shipping services, which allow you to travel hands-free. 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. Shipping your luggage ahead allows you to bring more with you than if you were simply relying on a few pieces of checked baggage.

Simply book online and My Baggage will collect your luggage and deliver it quickly and safely to where it needs to go.

Have used MyBaggage twice and will continue to use them in the future. The customer service team are super helpful and I had two bags collected from very remote locations and both processes ran smoothly. The bags are fully tracked and both arrived securely and signed for. Five stars!

A painful reminder

While I'm grateful I found the service and grateful for whatever help they actually provided, the reality is that DHL did all the actual work and that the only reason I needed to use a service like My Baggage was because Thai Airways wanted to charge me $1500 dollars to add a second suitecase to my flight. In the end it cost me $500 dollars to ship my suitcase to a new location plus the time I lost organizing my belongings so that I would have what I needed until my second suitecase arrived plus the time I spent finding the service and filling out documents, etc. So while I am relatively grateful, it's a painful reminder of a bad experience overall. Super stressful. I hope you'll never need to use their service.

Mostly everything went well

Everything went well. The only issue was that DHL didn't pick up the bags when we understood they were going to. It was very difficult to contact them. However when My Baggage was contacted they got onto it right away. Relieved my stress for sure.

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.
