Uni Baggage – Airline Baggage Alternative

Emirates offers a very generous complimentary baggage allowance for all passengers. However, purchasing excess baggage on an Emirates flight can be very expensive and increase the overall cost of your journey considerably.

It therefore makes sense to seek a more cost-effective alternative – such as a low cost luggage shipping service. That’s where Uni Baggage comes in.

Our fast and convenient luggage shipping services allow you to travel hands-free. It means you’ll save yourself some time at the airport when you don’t have to check-in your bags, no waiting around at luggage carousels on the other side and ultimately, one less thing to worry about whilst you travel.

Customers receive full door to door luggage collection and delivery as well as access to online tracking. We offer fast delivery times and great customer support.
