Traveling with too much luggage this summer?

This summer, like every summer, I have a busy agenda. With kids at home for two months, we use this time to visit friends and family abroad as well as to enjoy some well deserved break. This means packing for various weather conditions, different locations and situations resulting in several pieces of luggage and hefty carry-on baggage fees charged by the European low cost carriers especially for excess weight.

I am not very good at packing light. “If you need something, you can always buy it when you get there” doesn’t resonate with me and I prefer to have all I need (want) with me, including dresses than never get worn once in two months, too many shoes, too many jumpers in case then sun doesn’t shine.

With kids not old enough to carry heavy luggage up and down the airport departure lounges let alone take them down the carousels at arrival, I have tried a few years ago sending my luggage with Send My Bag and I was hooked. They pick up my bags from home and deliver them straight to my destination a couple of days later. I must say this has saved me a lot of hassle and inconvenience and the service is often cheaper than taking the bags with you on Ryanair.

You can send anything from skis to golf bags, bikes to boxes. I’ll definitely give it a go this winter to ship our family ski gear (4 helmets, 4 skis, 2 snowboards, x4 ski outfits, boots!!!). I am no longer a student, however I heard it is a great service for university students going back home too.

My next luggage pick up is due in two weeks. I’d better get packing!
