Transporting Your Luggage To Austria: Airline Baggage
If you’re flying to Austria, whether it be for a holiday, to begin your study abroad or otherwise; surely, it only makes sense to carry your baggage with you on your flight. However, doing so means you are restricted to your airline’s baggage weight allowance. It could mean that you might have to make the sacrifice that no one wants to make, which is leaving some of your personal belongings behind. And even then, you might still be slapped with excess baggage charges at the check-in desk.
Transporting Your Luggage To Austria: Traditional Removals
If you’re uprooting your life to Austria, whether it be with your family or for work, then hiring a traditional internal removals company to transport your belongings overseas seems like the obvious option. Generally speaking, they are indeed excellent for shipping large, bulky items such as sofas, beds and even your car. However, if you happen to find yourself on a strict budget and a time timescale for your big move, you might find that the cost and transit times don’t exactly align with your needs. After all, some international removals can take up to two months, depending on the route and service type.

Shipping Your Bike To Austria
A great way of exploring Austria is by bike and it can save you a lot of money when getting from one place to another. In fact, Austria is also a popular location for cycling holidays. For these reasons, we ship bikes to Austria for our customers regularly.
When sending a bike with My Baggage, you will have to dismantle your bike before packaging it for transit. If you are unsure how to do this by yourself, you can simply visit a local bike shop and pay a small charge for your bike to be dismantled.
Shipping Oversized Items
Austria is known around the world as a popular ski destination, with resorts including St Anton and Kitzbühel. Instead of renting equipment when you get there, why not bring your own skis? My Baggage allows you to send your skis ahead and having them waiting for your at your destination. You can also use our service to send other large, typically oversized items such as other sporting equipment and musical instruments.
Austrian Customs Information
When shipping from the UK to Austria 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 Austria 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 Austrian customs regulations and quarantine before booking your shipment to Austria. Please make yourself aware of potential customs duties in Austria and be sure to follow any and all advice provided by customs directly.
Prohibited and Non-Compensation Items
At My Baggage, we’re experts at shipping personal effects all over the world, meaning you can send almost everything you would typically find in a standard holiday suitcase on our services. However, due to security and customs, there are items which are prohibited and cannot be carried on any service, as is standard with most shipping companies.
As a general rule, you can be sure that the following items are prohibited:
- Animal Products
- Cash, Credit Cards, Debit Cards
- Dangerous Goods
- Hazardous Goods
- Passports or other confidential personal documentation
- Perishable Foods
When placing your booking with us, please do keep in mind that there are specific items which can be carried on our services, however, they may not be covered under our compensation cover and should be sent at your own risk. If you 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 Austria.
What type of packaging can be used?
When sending your belongings to Austria 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.
