Cheaper to ship or check extra baggage

Jump to last reply

We are flying with Altalia and will have some extra baggage. In addition to our 1 carry-on, and 1 checked-in luggage (per person), we are looking to check-in one, possibly two smaller suitcases. We have been here 3 months so have purchased gifts and other items given to us from family members. We are flying from Rome to Toronto and trying to decide whether it's worth shipping a parcel to Canada or pay for extra baggage. From what I understand, with Alitalia, you pay 75 euros for extra baggage but when you check-in online, you can purchase extra baggage at 20% less.
I would like to know if anyone has had experienced with shipping parcels home to Canada and which postal service did you use. Was it cheaper or would you recommend paying the extra baggage fee.
Thanks.
