With the vacation season now closing in DHL is offering a new service to transport your luggage. Using the DHL Paketmarke parcel stamp and a special label for luggage shipments, vacationers can send their luggage in advance to anywhere in Germany from June 1, 2007.
Luggage up to 31.5 kilos costs EUR 13.90 and for just EUR 3.00 more DHL will deliver travel luggage from door to door. As a rule luggage is then delivered to the holiday destination within two working days.
Boris Mayer, who is responsible at Deutsche Post for the private customer business of the Group's Parcels division, summarizes as follows: "Vacations in Germany are on the rise. The DHL offering should prove particularly attractive to those planning to travel to their destination by train or by plane. Vacationers will be able to relax completely beginning from day one of what is after all the most enjoyable time of the year." Here's how it works. Fill out the DHL PAKETMARKE parcel stamp and attach it to the newly introduced luggage label. Tie the luggage label to your luggage and drop it off at the nearest Deutsche Post retail outlet or arrange to have it picked up by DHL.
Regardless of whether you are traveling to deepest Bavaria or the Müritz National Park up in the North, your travel bags will arrive at your destination normally within two working days. The only exceptions are the islands in the North Sea and the Baltic where the delivery normally requires four working days. No surcharge will be claimed for transport to these vacation islands.
