How often have you wished you didn’t have to lug your bags around when you’re travelling? There’s now a service in Delhi that solves the problem. If you’re flying to or from Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport, you now travel baggage-free. The new baggage delivery service, provided by baggage-transfer service CarterX, is currently available from Terminal 3 for international and domestic flights. And ICYMI, this service is already available at Mumbai, Bengaluru and Hyderabad airports (more below).
Delhi airport’s baggage delivery service: How it works
If you’d like your bags picked up on your way to the airport:
- Make a booking at least one day in advance via CarterX’s website or app.
- You will have to enter the date of service for pick-up delivery, the time slot, location and flight details.
- Each bag will be sealed in a tamper-resistant bag which is bar-coded for easy identification.
- Passengers can then collect their bags from the forecourt area and proceed to check-in.
If you’re at the airport and would like your bags delivered to your home or hotel
- Use the app or website on arrival or book the service at a CarterX counter located at Terminal 3. The baggage can be delivered to Delhi/NCR region, Haryana, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh from the airport.
Delhi airport’s baggage delivery service: Cost
The cost of the doorstep baggage pick-up and drop services depends on the number of bags, size, weight and the distance from where the bags need to be picked up or dropped. We played around with the cost calculator on the website: the drop of a check-in suitcase of under 20kg from Greater Kailash to T3 will cost approximately Rs313, from Noida to T3 will cost Rs314 and Gurgaon to T3 will cost Rs313.
You need to make the full payment via the app or the website (or at the counter) at the time of booking. We like that your luggage is bar-coded and can be tracked in realtime.
In Delhi, the service is available only at T3 right now. It will soon be extended to Terminal 1 and Terminal 2, though we don’t know the ETA yet.
