This blog sets out the options available to Singaporean students looking to ship their luggage or personal belongings from the U.K. to Singapore.
The U.K. is a popular destination for Singaporean students looking to further their education and obtain a degree. Despite the pandemic, a significant number of students from Singapore chose one of the U.K.'s universities as their home for 3 or 4 years. At the end of March 2022, there were over 6500 students from Singapore studying in the U.K.
Singaporean students are attending universities across the U.K. with large numbers at University College London (UCL), Manchester, Bristol and Leeds.
After 3 or 4 years at university many overseas students will find that they have a sizeable amount of personal belongings which they wish to take home. International airlines have strict limits on the weight of luggage and it's easy to exceed the maximum baggage allowance.
Arriving at the airport and finding out that your luggage is over the maximum allowance can be very costly. Excess baggage rates charged by international airlines are at an all-time high.
Instead of paying high excess baggage rates to an airline, Tudor International Freight provide cost effective options for students shipping goods from the U.K. to Singapore.
