The Dreaded Luggage Problem for Airbnb Guests
There is nothing more exhausting than dragging your luggage around all around town before checking-in or after checking-out of your Airbnb.
This, alone, can put a damper on your vaca. Luckily, there are a bunch of new ways to make your travel experience less painful! App-based solutions — like LuggageHero, Stasher, and Nannybag — are out there for luggage storage, leaving you hands-free to go out and sightsee, grab brunch, or have an adventure. These companies all serve the same purpose — you can book a date (even on the same day) at one of their locations in your city for a small fee, drop off your bags and then pick them up when you’re ready to leave.
This solves a huge problem for travelers, however, there is a caveat. You have to physically drop off your luggage and then physically pick it up before catching your flight or checking into your Airbnb. This could take you pretty far out of your way and eat up valuable time for doing super touristy things.
LugLess lets you ship your bags in advance directly to a FedEx or UPS location nearby your Airbnb. They’re held there for you to pickup right before you check in. This way, you hop off your flight and just go out and about without needing to stop at a luggage storage location first.
When you check out of your Airbnb, the whole process works in reverse. Drop your bags at the nearby UPS or FedEx location and be on your way. Zip around town and then straight to your flight. No check-in line and no baggage claim for you, your bags will show up right on your doorstep a day or two later!
Let’s look into the benefits of why using LugLess may be the solution for you.
Avoid Travel FOMO
We absolutely hate missing out on travel moments. When you’re out and about on vaca, you want to savor every second! All those selfies and #foodporn Instagram pics will be so much more memorable if you’re not lugging your stuff everywhere. More importantly, you won’t lose a whole day and won’t get that travel FOMO because your luggage isn’t dragging you down! Major win!
Let’s be real. When you’re traveling you want to look cute AF. Dripping in sweat after lugging your heavy luggage up a steep hill to meet friends for brunch and cocktails is not a good look. It’s 2019 and you KNOW everyone and their mama is taking pictures of everyone and everything… cause picture or it didn’t happen! When you don’t have to lug your baggage, you have the option to wear heels, get extra creative with your outfit or just be extra comfortable. Ship your bags and wear a pair of heels that’ll make heads turns.
Oh, Snap! Save Money!
It’s no secret that baggage fees add up quickly, and you’ll end up paying more than you’d like, especially if you’re not aware of all the rules. Some airlines even charge carry-on fees, which can be frustrating and leave you feeling salty. Our service may even be cheaper (our rates start at $15!) than the storage fees and you won’t have to drop off your luggage anywhere!
We want you to enjoy your vaca from the moment you land until the moment you take off. Life is too short to lug stuff around. Whether you’re heading on an awesome ski trip or to get away from cold winter-life, be prepared.
