FrontRunners: Traveling Light

<< Back to Robb Report, November 2003

Increased security at airports has added to the woes of public air travel. LuggageFree (800.361.6871, www.luggagefree.com) aims to reduce the inconvenience of flying by picking up your bags from your home or office and delivering them directly to your hotel. At the end of your trip, the com­pany simply ships your bags back home. LuggageFree provides a convenient way to travel light and still have everything you need for your business or leisure trip—from skis and golf clubs to strollers and silk shirts—waiting for you at your final destination. Clients can reduce their travel time by skipping baggage check-in and lower the risk of stolen luggage. The shipping service costs approximately $2 per pound plus a pickup surcharge.
