onboard luggage policy

we keep it light, that doesn’t mean you can’t bring all your essentials with you

Here at Lumo, we understand you may wish to keep your luggage close by, and that what you are travelling with is important, but depending on the size this may not always be possible. All customers can bring on board a maximum of ONE Small bag OR Holdall and ONE Medium suitcase (63 x 41 x 27cm). Golf clubs, sports equipment and winter sports items are not allowed onboard.

Please note, luggage that exceeds these limits is carried at our discretion and you may be refused travel. A charge will be levied for conveying additional items of luggage, or for excessively large or bulky items. This will not exceed half a full adult standard fare for the entire train route. Any luggage unsafely stored overheard and not according to the dimensions provided is stored at your own risk and is a risk to others' safety.

Please use our LumoLuggage Courier Service to transport your items to your final destination.

Are you a student moving into halls? Do you plan to travel with lots of equipment? LumoLuggage lets you bring everything you need in a single trip.

The easiest way to organise your door-to-door courier service is to buy your train tickets online. Once your tickets with Lumo have been confirmed, you can start booking your items for delivery through a link we’ll send in a pre-departure email or through getting a Quick Quote above. Here, you can let us know the size/weight of your luggage, your pick-up/drop-off locations, and your arrival date. We will then give you a price estimate for you to think over or go ahead and complete your purchase.

We will then advise on a potential collection (this might be a day before your Lumo journey). On the day of collection, our door-to-door luggage courier service will collect your bags from your home, hotel or accommodation and drop them off at your destination address – all you need to do is enjoy your train journey!

Remember to complete this process at least 2 working days before your intended collection date if you want to use LumoLuggage. 

LumoLuggage couriers don't just collect from your permanent address (house, flat etc.) but also from hotels, holidays rentals and other forms of temporary accommodation you may be staying in during your travels. 
Standard collection times for your luggage and other items are Monday to Friday 09.00 to 17.30 UK time.
You book based on estimated weights and dimensions. But, we advise to measure accurately, this should be done from the widest, highest and longest points including bulges, wheels and handles. You can enter the weight and dimensions in any order which will alter the price accordingly.

If any single dimension of any item type measures more than 120cms these items are classified by DHL, FEDEX, TNT and UPS as ‘Oversize Piece’ and attract a surcharge. 

Maximum size of one item = 240cms

The heaviest single item you can ship is 68kg/50lb.
A minimum of two working days prior to the date of collection for online bookings or the day of collection when booking by telephone for most shipments if you have access to email and a printer to print off the Air Waybills. However wherever possible, three working days or more to allow preparation and postage of travel documents to you. If you have a last-minute order please email customercare@lumoluggage.co.uk or use the form here.
