Default Shipping Luggage

I will be shipping one large suitcase from Barcelona to the US at the end of my Regent Voyager vacation. I've found luggagefree.com (and saw them written up the the NY Times). Does any one have experience with this company whichs charges about half of what other baggage forwarding companies charge. Or do you have another suggestion? Please don't suggest I limit myself to one bag. That seems highly impractical.

Ken, here is a link to a thread (which also references other threads) on luggage shipping:


I haven't used any of the services as I still can handle our luggage so I don't have first hand experience.

If you present your document with your way-over-the-limit luggage, the airline industry people are supposed to allow it free of charge!!! (I suggest that you don't tell them that you are a cruise mariner though...)
Why don't you work on a cruise ship, are you nuts?
