I was surprised to read headlines yesterday (3rd June , 2016) regarding Ryanair’s reduction in baggage fees, apparently fees would now be lower for 92% of customers, including a huge 17% saving on flighst of 3 hours of less – wow, how nice have Ryanair become! Unfortunately for passengers however it would appear Ryanair HQ either don’t own (famously tight) or know how to operate a calculator.
The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has recently released new guidelines for carry-on luggage, which will see the recommended allowable dimensions reduced to 55 cm x 35 cm x 19 cm. This is considerably smaller than the current standard allowance of 56 cm x 45 cm x 25 cm. If these guidelines come into play, it will become increasingly difficult for passengers to pack what they need for even a few days away. Many will once again have to check in their baggage. This means that travellers will be forced to pay checked baggage fees and will be at risk of incurring extortionate excess baggage fees. Only time will tell what level of confusion and extra cost to the traveller these new guidelines will cause.
SendMyBag has today announced over 300 new worldwide baggage shipping routes to and from Italy. For the first time the SendMyBag service is now available from Italy to popular SendMyBag destinations such as Australia and Dubai.
All routes as well as prices can be found on our Italy destination page.
At SendMyBag we're constantly rolling out new features, some you may notice, some you may not, but it's rare for 48hours to pass without something new appearing.
We generally prefer the experience to speak for itself but we couldn't let the addition of collection windows go by unmarked.
As a company our goal is to make your travel experience hassle free and we recognise that waiting for a collection is just not fun!
We'll not go into great detail but suffice to say it's extremely important that a driver collects all items in an area on any given day and in order for this to be achieved the route must be planned efficiently, this makes offering collection times without using additional drivers and increasing charges quite complicated.
Sendmybag was delighted to take part in Pitch 10 held at 10 Downing Street on Friday, 20th February 2015, in association with Tech Nation. Sendmybag was one of twelve shortlisted companies ear-marked by experts as some of the most promising digital companies in the UK. The event saw each venture pitch their business concept to a group of fellow entrepreneurs, journalists and government officials. Sendmybag was in good company with other up-and-coming businesses, such as Schoop and Cocoon, in attendance. This event highlights the wealth of innovation being bred in the UK tech industry.
We don't sell cardboard boxes but the 457mm x 457mm x 457mm boxes available here are the best value we've seen and the size is perfect for our service. The pack includes 15 boxes and delivery for under £25. 15 boxes may be a lot but we recommend sharing or giving away what you don't need, the other packs we found which included less boxes were the same price.
