Increased APD a headache for travellers

Flexistore

As one of the more stressful activities in this day and age, our aim is to become a universal solution that integrates transportation as well as storage both on a local and international scale.

Holidaymakers and overseas students looking at going abroad may be in for a shock, as the cost of flights has now officially increased courtesy of the increased Air Passenger Duty (APD) – but for those simply looking to ship their stuff, customers will be happy to know they can save money thanks to Flexistore.

The rise in airport departure tax means that a family of four flying in economy to Florida will now be paying £268 in APD instead of the original £260, while a family of four heading to the Caribbean can expect to pay out £332.

Tom Ash from Flexistore said: “In a world where prices are always changing, we wanted to practise consistency and transparency to try and reaffirm customers that we as a business firmly believe in quality over quantity. Providing worldwide coverage by either road, sea or air, we can ship small items right up to large shipping containers – all at an affordable cost.”

Beginning last month, the cost per economy passenger on flights travelling less than 2,000 miles remains unaffected at £13 – however, APD on flights with a distance of between 2,001 and 4,000 miles (including destinations such as the Middle East and North America) will rise from £65 to £67.

“Though it may seem like a slight change, this will make a huge impact in people’s attitudes towards flying,” said Ash.

“However, we hope that consumer’s views to shipping remains positive – and with solutions offered including export packing, door to door service as well as express airfreight available, we wanted to simplify the shipping process in terms of time and money. As one of the more stressful activities in this day and age, our aim is to become a universal solution that integrates transportation as well as storage both on a local and international scale.”

Flexistore currently caters to 20 locations in the UK, ranging from records management in Bedfordshire to self storage in Cardiff – and with a selection of unbeatable special offers to choose from, Flexistore remains the original and best within the mobile self storage industry.
