Travelers Advantage(R) Says Travel Lighter This Summer: With Summer Travel Set To Break Records, Luggage Delivery Service Is Hot

NORWALK, Conn., May 24 /PRNewswire/ — As summer travel gets ready to sizzle – the Travel Industry Association of America is forecasting a record breaking summer travel season – one of the hottest new travel services on the radar is luggage delivery. Greatly reducing airport check-in time, luggage delivery firms pick-up your luggage ahead of your departure and deliver it to your final destination.

And just in time for Memorial Day travel, luggage delivery reduces the risk of lost luggage and time wasted lingering around airport carousels. Now you can fly lighter and with fewer headaches by using luggage delivery services, knowing that your bags will be there when you arrive.

“In our increasingly security-conscious society, travelers are looking for steps they can take to navigate the airport more efficiently, and easily embark on their vacation adventure or business trip,” said Julia Ryan, vice president of Travelers Advantage and “Services such as luggage delivery and online-check-in are becoming an important part of the savvy traveler’s itinerary.”

Despite rising travel prices, Americans will travel in record numbers this summer, with Florida, California, Nevada and New York as the top destinations, according to the TIA. TIA predicts that summer travel will increase 2.3 percent to 328 million leisure person-trips June-August. A person-trip is one person traveling 50-plus miles, one-way from home. With airports across America brimming with summer travelers, hassle-free luggage delivery may be the best vacation decision you make.

Numerous luggage delivery services have emerged and offer door-to-door delivery of not only luggage, but anything to make your vacation adventure more enjoyable – from bicycles and golf clubs, to water and snow skis. Earlier this month, Walt Disney World launched a luggage delivery service for domestic travelers who elect to stay at Disney resorts and hotels.

Travelers Advantage, a leading membership travel club and online travel service, is now offering its members a 50 percent discount on first-time luggage delivery and 10 percent off additional services provided by Luggage Free, a national luggage shipping company that delivers luggage, golf bags, skis, bikes, cribs, strollers and other bulky items, including portfolio presentations and trade show materials for leisure and business travelers alike. Luggage Free will pick up your bags at your home or business and deliver directly to your travel destination, whether it is a hotel room, a villa, or a cruise ship cabin. The company carefully wraps your luggage individually in protective shipping bags, safeguarding your valuables for your trip. Luggage Free also tracks your luggage and provides status reports and delivery confirmation via e-mail.
