Travelling to or from Belgium? My Baggage can help you with your luggage.
When you book with My Baggage, you’ll not only save time and money on your travels, but you’ll have the freedom to travel luggage-free. We provide convenient and affordable international luggage shipping services to help you get your excess baggage to Belgium.
Belgium is a small and densely populated country, located in Western Europe and bordered by France, the Netherlands, Germany and Luxembourg. As a result, there are actually three official languages spoken in Belgium: French, German and Dutch.
The town of Bruges is, undeniably, the biggest tourist draw in Belgium. However, there is truly an abundance of stunning architecture and scenic small towns full of charm to be explored all across Belgium. Whilst on your travels across Belgium, it’s imperative to try some of the culinary delights that it has to offer, such as the famous Belgian Waffle.
Whether you’re travelling to Belgium to explore the country, to study abroad, or to relocate permanently, there’s always the question of how to transport your personal belongings there in one piece, and in a way that won’t break the bank. The easiest, most obvious options would be either carrying your bag with you on your flight to Belgium, or alternatively, hiring a traditional removals company to take care of the bigger shipments. These options, however, may not align with your needs, your timescale, or your budget.
Thankfully, My Baggage offers a brand new approach to transporting your luggage overseas. We strive to remove all of the stress and costs involved in paying out for expensive airline baggage fees and out-of-budget removals. At My Baggage, we make transporting your unaccompanied baggage across the world a surprisingly easy process.

We can collect your bike from your front door and deliver it directly to the front door or your destination within Belgium, this can take as little as 2 to 3 days to arrive in Belgium, depending on where you are shipping from.

When shipping from the UK to Belgium or anywhere else in the EU, goods do not pass through customs clearance and therefore are not subject to import tax or duty. If, however, you’re sending to Belgium from a country outside of the EU, such as the USA or Australia, you are then legally required to complete and attach a customs invoice to your shipment.
Generally, My Baggage shipments clear customs in a timely manner, free from duties and taxes, as most countries offer a generous duty-free allowance for personal effects. However, as customs processes and allowances are different around the world, and because My Baggage has no control over any decisions made, we do advise doing your own personal research into Belgium customs regulations and quarantine before booking your shipment to Belgium. Please make yourself aware of any potential customs duties in Belgium and be sure to follow any and all advice provided by customs directly.
At My Baggage, we specialise in shipping personal effects all over the world. This means that, with our convenient service, you’ll have the freedom to ship almost everything you would typically find in a standard holiday suitcase to Belgium. However, it is important to keep in mind that due to security and customs, there are certain items which are prohibited and cannot be carried, as is standard with most shipping companies.
As a general rule, you can be sure that the following items are prohibited:
Before placing your booking with us, please consider that there are specific items that can be carried on our services, however, they may not be covered under our compensation cover and so should be sent at your own risk. If you do choose to send any non-compensation items, please ensure they are packaged securely and appropriately.

Please note that import allowances, security and customs processes differ all around the world; we recommend that you do your own personal research into what may be prohibited in your destination country before booking your shipment to Belgium.
What type of packaging can be used?
When sending your belongings to Belgium with My Baggage, we recommend using either suitcases or strong cardboard boxes to package your items so they are suitable for transit.
We advise against using fragile or expensive suitcases, as packaging is not covered under our compensation cover. With regards to boxes, it’s always best to invest in a new, sturdy, double-walled cardboard box as they are most durable and suitable for transit.
If you are sending fragile or delicate items, we recommend using internal packaging to protect them during transit. You can use materials such as bubble wrap or newspapers.
