My Baggage – Airline Baggage Alternative

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