Luggage Forward Lightens Holiday Travel

By: Aaron Kirley

The moment you pack your luggage for a trip it becomes an inconvenience. In fact, the word “luggage" comes from the Scandinavian word “lug" which the English Oxford Dictionary defines as “carry or drag with great effort".  That pretty much sums it up - nobody likes lugging their baggage to and from the airport.  The problems associated with luggage don’t end when you get to the airport; actually that’s where most of the problems begin.   Long check-in lines, hassles at security checkpoints, and lost luggage anxieties are issues that are amplified by holiday travel congestion and 2006 is expected to but the busiest travel season since 2000.

Carrying luggage with you the old fashion way just doesn’t make sense anymore and thanks to the emerging luggage forwarding industry you can upgrade your holiday travel experience.  The days of FedEx’ing your golf clubs to Florida are over as well because luggage forwarding companies have better rates, better customer service, better reliability and better insurance.

  Boston based Luggage Forward pioneered the luggage forwarding industry with a suite of online tools designed specifically for reliable worldwide door-to-door luggage delivery.

Forward Luggage when Airlines Charge

Airlines are under tremendous pressure to cut costs and since they are actually in the business of shipping people it is no surprise that they are looking to baggage as a relief valve.  The heavier the plain, the more fuel it consumes and as fuel costs increase the airlines have imposed stringent excess baggage fees.  Holiday travelers pack heavy with gifts and bulky clothes but now they can avoid excess baggage fees by forwarding their luggage directly to their destinations. 

Forward Skis and Snowboards to the Lodge in Aspen

The family ski trip can easily turn into a nightmare while transporting 5 pairs of skis and 6 duffel bags to and from the airport.  Imagine showing up at the lodge to find you skis waxed and ready to go.  Some luggage shipping companies go above and beyond to provide their clients with first class service extras.  Forwarding luggage truly provides total travel convenience.

Forward Golf Bags South for the Winter

There is nothing worse than lugging golf clubs to the airport except playing a round with rented clubs.  Now there’s a solution for international travelers to send their clubs ahead when they’re planning 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 cost of checking them with the Airlines.  If you’re heading South this winter be sure to forward your clubs ahead.
