EXCESS BAGGAGE

Passengers travelling with more baggage than the allowance are required to pay excess baggage charges. These charges ensure that your baggage will be travelling on your flight and will be available for collection from the carousel at your destination. However Excess Baggage charges can be prohibitive, that's why EBCO offers the convenience and cost savings of sending excess baggage as unaccompanied baggage.

UNACOMPANIED BAGGAGE - THE COST EFFECTIVE ALTERNATIVE

By choosing to send your excess as unaccompanied baggage, you can enjoy significant savings. For example, to send a 30 kg suitcase from Sydney to London would cost around $30.00 per kg as excess baggage, but only around $7.70 per kg if sent as unaccompanied baggage. Whilst there are some handling costs payable at origin and destination, unaccompanied baggage is often considerably less expensive than excess baggage rates.

The following table shows the cost savings of sending unaccompanied baggage as compared with excess baggage charge
