FASH-ON SMASH: Get Rid of Your Baggage in 08

5 01 2008

If you are like me, you love to travel but HATE the idea of checking luggage. Not only is it time consuming and a pain, but with the new security sanctions, you can’t even lock the zipper to keep out prying eyes and hands. Imagine those hot new kicks you just copped for your vacation gone without a trace. Good luck trying to get them back…

However, there is a cure for your travel ills! Luggage Free is a third-party service which ships your luggage to your final destination. The price varies by destination (contiguous US? Alaska/Hawaii? International?) and by speed (1-5 business days for US).

Pros: You can bypass the lines and make your trip through the airport a breeze. You don’t have to worry about the shady airport workers mishandeling or dipping in your stash.

Cons: Hidden fees are snuck in everywhere. On top of the basic charge for luggage (which is priced per pound), fuel surcharges and a pick up fee of $40 (+$2 for every extra mile over 40 from the nearest airport) is billed after delivery.

Check the price lines and more info after the commute.
