Emirates Excess Baggage

Excess baggage charges on an Emirates flight will again depend on your fare and also your destination. Emirates provide an online baggage calculator to help you determine your excess baggage costs. These prices can vary on a number of factors.

My Baggage – Airline Baggage Alternative

Emirates offers a very generous complimentary baggage allowance for all passengers. However, purchasing excess baggage on an Emirates flight can be very expensive and increase the overall cost of your journey considerably.

It, therefore, makes sense to seek a more cost-effective alternative – such as a low-cost luggage shipping service. That’s where My Baggage comes in.

Our fast and convenient luggage shipping services allow 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.
