KLM Excess Baggage

When travelling with KLM Airlines, you will have to pay excess baggage fees if your baggage is overweight. This differs depending on your route of travel and number of bags you are travelling with. For information on excess baggage fees at KLM click here.

KLM Special Baggage

Because of limited space on KLM aircraft’s, you need to reserve for the transportation of some types of special baggage as early as possible – no later than 48 hours before departure. It is also extremely important to ensure that your reservation is confirmed before departure to ensure that you can take your special baggage with you.

My Baggage – Airline Baggage Alternative

KLM is an undeniably affordable travel option if you are travelling with a small amount of luggage off season. However, if you go above 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 bag 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 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!

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

Reliable, fast enough, trackable.

I had 30 extra kilos of luggage I couldn't bring with me on the plane and my baggage offered me a great service at a great price! I compared a few other companies before choosing them and I couldn't be happier: the collection happened within the times presented and the delivery got home in a few days. It was easy to follow the instructions for a correct delivery and you can find tutorials too if you have doubts on how/where to place your labels. These labels are sent by email, just like all the updates you need on your delivery. At some point I had to call the customer service because I was worried they would not be able to call me on my foreign phone number, and the person on the other side of the phone was patient and professional although I had a lot of questions and took a while to make sure everything would be okay. 10/10 would recommend.

My Baggage has been a God send for our daughter studying in Belfast. We have used it regularly & always been impressed. Only bugbear this time is that parcel was dumped on doorstep. Delivery driver knocked but didn’t bother to wait for anyone to answer.
