London, UK (RPRN) 06/19/13 — When moving abroad to study or partake in a gap year, one of the most costly and unexpected expenses that can occur are the fees charged by airlines as a result of transporting heavy books or multiple bags. However, planning ahead can save the cost of inflated airline fees, advises baggage shipping company Send My Bag.

The number of overseas students choosing to study in the UK is ever increasing and large amount of UK undergraduates move to North America and European countries as part of their courses. As trips often consist of being away for upwards of a term, it is not uncommon for students to need to take a number of bags, some of which will contain very heavy and valued items, such as text books and laptops. Many airlines charge between ten and fifteen pounds per additional kilogram over their standard luggage allowance. This can result in a hefty, unexpected charge when checking bags at the airport. 

 As the cost of travel and accommodation can be expensive, foreign students often need to make savings wherever possible. By thinking ahead and utilising a specialist shipping or student removals service, overseas scholars can remove the hassle of transporting their bags themselves while also saving on huge airline fees. Such shipping companies like Send My Bag collect the luggage from the most convenient address and deliver it directly to the student’s destination, meaning moving away from, or back, home has never been so simple or cost-effective. 

Adam Ewart, founder of Send My Bag, commented: “One of the most unexpected and expensive costs that overseas students have to face when moving abroad is transporting their additional and weighty luggage. Travelling students tend to require heavy items, such as text books, and multiple bags in preparation for a long stay in a foreign country, and airlines can charge upwards of a hundred pounds per additional bag.

“By using Send My Bag, overseas students can not only remove the hassle of moving, but also save a lot of money. Bags are picked up and then delivered to a destination of choice, all at a fraction of the cost that many airlines charge for additional or overweight baggage on flights.”
