Vacations are supposed to be relaxing and enjoyable, but they can quickly become a stressful mess if you’re not prepared. For example, did you know that airlines mishandle over 600,000 bags every year? When I’m on vacation, I want nothing more than to get there and enjoy my time; and not have to think about lugging my gear to the airport, waiting for it at baggage claim, loading it into a rented SUV… just to turn around and do it all again when its’ time to leave.
You can maximize the time that you have on vacation by shipping vs bringing luggage with you when you fly
You can maximize the time that you have on vacation by shipping vs bringing luggage with you when you fly. I’ve been traveling for years and this is one of the only ways to truly get more out of your trip.
After all, who wants to deal with luggage? You don’t want to waste time waiting in line at baggage claim, not knowing if your bags are going to make it or not. And what about all of those extra fees? It can really add up! I know from experience that shipping my gear is so much easier than lugging it around from place to place and having no idea where it is at any given moment.
Shipping your stuff ahead of time also saves money because airlines charge extra for checked bags these days (sometimes upwards of $150)! If you find yourself traveling often during the year like me, then this option will save you a lot over time thanks again partly due to those high airline fees but also because shipping companies like FedEx offer deep discounts if they’re able to ship multiple items together on one truck versus separately scheduled routes which would cost more overall due again mostly just because people don’t understand how much money they’re wasting every single day when they don’t use them properly.”
The average passenger waits 30 minutes at baggage claim and there are over 600,000 bags mishandled every year by airlines.
You may not have noticed, but the time you spend waiting for your bags to come off the carousel at baggage claim is precious time that could be spent on the mountain with friends and family. The average passenger waits 30 minutes for their luggage, and there are over 600,000 bags mishandled every year by airlines.
To avoid this hassle and maximize the time that you have on vacation, shipping via TripHero can help. When it comes to shipping your bags instead of bringing them with you when flying:
It costs less to ship your gear than to rent it
Whether you’re traveling with a family or packing light, shipping your gear is the most affordable option. It costs less to ship your gear than it does to rent it. If you do decide to rent your gear, remember that rental fees are not cheap! In addition to paying for the rental itself, you may have to pay a deposit and handle shipping fees. It can be stressful keeping track of all these extra costs when all you want is a long-awaited vacation.
When shipping your gear, all the heavy lifting is done for you—you don’t have to worry about returning something on time or missing out on an opportunity because there’s no place nearby where they can drop off their equipment before heading out on their trip!
No need to check in early or wait around after your last run – just leave your equipment and luggage at the hotel and skip the airline hassles!
Who wants to spend their vacation waiting in line at the airport? And who wants to waste precious time by checking their gear in and waiting for it to arrive on the other end? With this system, there’s no need to check-in your skis or boots, or lug them around with you once you get off the plane. You can even avoid baggage handlers’ rough handling (and charges) by leaving your equipment at the hotel. Sounds good to me!
Of course, you’ll still need a way of getting there and back. But if all goes as planned, you won’t have any gear to haul around on either end of your journey.
