A leading baggage international shipping company has made steps to help lower the costs of flying at a key time before the summer holiday season by opening a new luggage shipping and retail luggage outlet in the recently refurbished London Heathrow Terminal 4 Main Departures Concourse to help combat rising costs and surcharges being introduced by some budget airlines.
The announcement of some budget airlines now charging a third more on luggage and even more outlandish charges such as having to pay to use the toilet mid flight has put many families off the thought of a cheap break away this year, especially with money being tighter in recent years.
David Elliott, Chairman of Excess Baggage had this to say: “A lot of people, especially family groups will no doubt feel a bit apprehensive about the extra charges for luggage and we want to help take this stress out of the holiday period”
“We offer a range of flexible shipping options to send your excess baggage to your holiday destination without having to worry about going over weight limits or the number of bags. This new dedicated outlet for travellers can help them take advantage of our wide range including baggage shipping, security bag wrap as well as a wide range of travel goods and luggage for purchase.”
With over 25 years worth of experience and managing over 50,000 shipments each year Excess Baggage is the premier choice for a wide range of travellers who need to send their baggage unattended. As well as holidaymakers there are a wide range of other customers such as students, expatriates, international removals and businessmen and women travelling around the world or require shipping to UK and other countries.
The outlet at Terminal 4 will be selling a wide range of luggage including popular brands as Samsonite, Carlton, Go, Trident, Roncato, Quicksilver, Kipling, Renovo, Travelpro, Delsey, Rimowa, Trunki, Dakine, CAT and Wenger.
The unit occupies a prime location on this busy concourse, adjacent to Malaysian Airlines, and Etihad as well as Air France, Continental and Delta. Serving up to 14m passengers annually, Excess Baggage’s new London Heathrow Terminal 4 is destined to become a very important outlet in the Company’s portfolio of 34 stores nationwide.
All Excess Baggage Company Heathrow and Gatwick Airport retail units operate minimum hours of 0700-2300, with busier locations opening at 0500 daily. A full list of outlets can be found at www.Excess-Baggage.com. Rates and information are available online, or by calling 020 8759 3344; email [email protected]
