Avoid the outrageous excess baggage and overweight fees airlines charge when you travel by domestic airlines within Australia or when taking an international flight. Taking excess luggage with you or sending it yourself from the airport's international freight desk can not only be very costly but carries other risks as well.
Last minute international shipping
Last minute international shipping of oversize or overweight baggage, in addition to being expensive, can also be targeted at security points as dangerous or prohibited goods and quarantined and delayed. Luggage or baggage items not clearly marked can be stopped at Customs points as undeclared or under-declared goods and be liable to tax, duties and penalties.
