LONDON, Aug. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- UK students travelling abroad to study this September and October can avoid having to pay airlines' inflated additional baggage costs by using an increasingly popular approach to luggage delivery – a cost effective student shipping service that also removes the stress of transporting a term or years-worth of belongings.
Following the introduction of higher tuition fees in the UK, students have been comparing the global opportunities and travelling overseas to undertake academic studies is a viable option for many. However, the logistics involved in transporting a student's belongings to another country can be extremely costly if done via the airline the student is flying with, as they very often charge a considerable premium for additional weight. Any tuition fees saved can easily end up being spent on the expense of flights at the start and end of each term and on excess baggage charges.
By employing the services of a specialist luggage delivery company such as Send My Bag it is possible to remove the expensive costs associated with taking additional baggage on planes. Furthermore, it also eradicates the hassle of carrying multiple bags to and from the airport as well as spending a long period of time at check-in.
From a student's door on 1 October to their halls of residence in the United States on 3 October, a single item weighing up to 30kg costs just £93.99 to transport. Or to Italy or Australia, each on a four-day turnaround, is £30.00 or £176.99 respectively.
Adam Ewart, founder of Send My Bag, commented: "When UK students travel abroad for an extended period they are often met with the predicament of transporting books, electronic equipment, belongings and home comforts. Whilst this can be done via an airline at the same time as the student's journey, the premium which they charge can often add tens, if not hundreds, of pounds to the cost of the move. These charges are often overlooked when the student is first planning to move overseas and can come as quite a shock if saving is one of the main reasons for studying outside of the UK.
"By using a dedicated luggage delivery service it is possible to minimise the costs associated with travelling abroad as well as reducing hassle and stress in what already is usually a very exciting, but manic time."
