Daigon Excess Baggage is the cheaper alternative for taking your excess baggage with you. Sometimes the costs to take an extra suitcase or even a box with some memorabilia or your purchases on holiday is extremely high and will put a dent in the bank.

The term excess baggage is derived from when the airline does not accept personal cargo over a certain weight, it is cheaper to then forward it with a excess luggage agent than pay the excess to the airline to be allowed to take it on-board with you.
