WHAT'S A COURIER COMPANY?
Courier companies have
overnight shipments to cities such as London, Rome, Hong Kong, Sydney,
Tokyo, Singapore, Caracas, Stockholm, Jamaica, Madrid, Bangkok, Milan,
Frankfurt, Rio De Janeiro, Paris, Melbourne, and several other locations
in Europe, Asia, South America, and Australia*.
These companies have flights booked every single day of the year. What do they do? They are in the business of providing a courier, an individual who buys
only the seat space, for companies who are sending luggage on commercial airlines. They simply purchase a coach class ticket and use the allotted luggage space to ship their packages.
What do they do
with the seat? That's where you come in. The company will sell the seat space to individuals at bargain prices. In other words, You fly as the passenger, a courier as they call it, checking in their
luggage. Many companies will send a courier because it is cheaper than shipping freight by air cargo. Also, shipping material as luggage clears customs hours, even days quicker than by cargo freight.
They cannot send their important luggage without you, so they offer the seat for very low prices.

WHAT ABOUT LIABILITY?
Are you liable for the packages
that you are shipping? No!! A representative from the courier company will meet you at the departing airport. They will give you the manifest and all the shipping instructions. At your destination
city, you will be met by another courier representative. You give them the manifest and your courier job is over until you return. You generally are not allowed to even touch the luggage. You never
even have to see the packages they are shipping. And don't worry, you won't be sending drugs and any illegal material like that. First of all, we're dealing with reputable companies. The individual
shipments are inspected prior to being manifested as to assure no dirty play. Secondly, you authorize some paperwork from the overnight company that says you are not responsible for what's in their packages.
Relieved? Great!! If you need more assurance, speak with the courier company before you fly to verify with the company what precautions they take on behalf of couriers such as bonding and insurance.
IS THIS ALL LAST MINUTE BOOKING?
No! Although the closer to
departure date you book, the cheaper the flight. You can book several months in advance and have the flight guaranteed if you like. Your length of stay is determined by the day of departure however, most
tickets are for at least 7 days. Others allow 10 days, 14 days, 21 days, and up to 6 months if you desire.
CAN I TAKE ANY LUGGAGE?
Yes you can take luggage, 2 pieces of carryon baggage. Some courier companies allow only one piece. However, if you are flying for 1/5
the price, you can see how great the tradeoff is. Quite often, your return flight will not have courier obligations. In other words, even though you're receiving the discount, the extra luggage space is
yours for the return flight.
DOES THIS MEAN I MUST TRAVEL ALONE?
No! Although courier companies only book one courier per flight, you can contact other courier companies and try to coordinate the flights. Occasionally they fly on the same days. If you can't fly on
the same flight, however, you can still coordinate your dates in order to arrive at your desired country during the same time. Remember, even if you don't fly on the same plane, you're getting up to 85% off the
regular airline prices so it's a great tradeoff!
