Excess Baggage a Worry
Whether a person is going abroad from India for higher studies or on a commercial assignment, both of which are fast becoming commonplace today, the necessity of someone taking care of excess or unaccompanied baggage through a cargo and courier services is of immense help. If the baggage shipping service is rendered at a competitive cost and on a door-to-door basis, it becomes a service of immense help and puts the person using the service at ease.
Limitation on Free Baggage Allowance for Air Travellers
All international airlines have limitations to the extent of baggage a person can bring onboard the airplane. This ranges from 50-141 pounds as free allowance per passenger. Anything beyond the free allowance becomes excess baggage and is charged at a considerably high rate. This may become more acute for students who may not be able to visit home for a while and must carry personal things in addition to books. In general, one carry-on bag and two pieces of luggage are what are allowed. A person can check the airline website for specific information on baggage weight and dimensions allowed, as not all airlines are the same. If there is more than this, you can expect to either pay the extra fee, or use a baggage shipping service ahead of time to send other items.
