Long check-in lines, hassles at security checkpoints, and the anxiety of lost baggage are problems amplified by holiday travel congestion and predicted 2006 but busiest travel season since 2000.Taking luggage with you in the old fashion way doesn’t make any sense anymore and thanks to the emerging baggage forwarding industry, you can enhance your vacation travel experience.
When you pack your luggage for the trip it becomes an inconvenience. In fact, the word “baggage” comes from the Scandinavian word “lug” which is defined by the Oxford English Dictionary as “carry or drag with great effort”. That pretty much sums it up – nobody likes carrying their luggage to and from an airport. Baggage-related problems don’t end when you get to the airport; actually that’s where most of the problems start. Long check-in lines, hassles at security checkpoints, and worries about lost baggage are problems amplified by holiday travel congestion and an estimated 2006 but busiest travel season since 2000.
Carrying luggage with you in the old fashion way doesn’t make sense anymore and thanks to the emerging baggage forwarding industry you can enhance your vacation travel experience. The days of FedEx’ing your golf club to Florida are also over because baggage forwarding companies have better rates, better customer service, better reliability and better insurance. Boston-based Luggage Forward is pioneering the baggage forwarding industry with a suite of online tools specifically designed for reliable door-to-door luggage delivery around the world.
Forwarding Baggage when the Airline Charges a Fee
Airlines are under tremendous pressure to cut costs and since they are truly in the business of delivering people it is no surprise that they seek baggage as an aid valve. The heavier the terrain, the more fuel it consumes and as fuel costs increase the airline has imposed strict excess baggage fees. Holiday travelers pack heavily in big gifts and clothes but now they can avoid excess baggage fees by forwarding their luggage straight to their destination.
Forward Skis and Snowboards to the Lodge in Aspen
A family ski trip can easily turn into a nightmare hauling 5 pairs of skis and 6 backpacks to and from the airport. Imagine showing up at the lodge to find you wax ski and ready to go. Several luggage delivery companies go above and beyond to provide their clients with the addition of first class service. Passing baggage really provides total travel convenience.
Southern Forward Golf Bags for Winter
There’s nothing worse than luring a golf club to the airport except playing a round with a rental club. There is now a solution for international travelers to send their clubs ahead when they plan a round of golf abroad. Three days to Scotland means you can play one weekend in New York and the next in Yorkshire without the hassle and expense of checking with Airlines. If you head South this winter make sure to carry your club forward.
So consider the luxury of an affordable shipping baggage. Next time you’re planning a trip, take your trip to a new level and experience total travel comfort with a baggage forwarding company. Happy traveling and Happy New Year!
