“To Carry-On or Not To Carry-On – That Is the Question?”

August 25, 2006 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
Bottled water, cosmetics, hair gel, perfume, baby formula….and the list goes on and on, and the most asked question today by air travelers is “Can I carry it on or not?”. That is not an easy question to answer because it seems to change by the day, depends upon who you are asking and where you are traveling.

As a result of the recent event in the UK, the TSA (Transportation Security Administration) has released more stringent carry-on restrictions for all commercial flights – domestic and international. These latest security measures are necessary and for the safety of everyone in the air and on the ground, but today’s air traveler is caught in the confusion about just exactly what they can and cannot carry on their flights.

In an effort to comply with these latest rules and avoid any possible issues at the airport, many air travelers are now shipping their luggage and uncertain carry-on items to their destination in advance of their trip. Shipping your luggage ahead not only guarantees that you will not be in violation of the new restrictions, but it is convenient, safe and secure.

Niche companies such as The Luggage Club, the premier door-to-door luggage, sports equipment and goods delivery service have emerged to help remove the guess work for travelers. The Luggage Club is positioned to meet the needs of this growing trend of travelers who have decided to play it safe by shipping their luggage in advance of their trip. Travelers’ luggage can be picked up at their home, office or location of choice and delivered to their travel destination, and returned again at the end of their trip. Plus, The Luggage Club has no limits on size, weight or number of pieces of luggage being shipped and service is offered in 220 countries worldwide.

“As a service provider to the travel industry, it is our responsibility to step up to the plate and help to keep passenger traffic flowing smoothly through airports worldwide” says Todd Kempinger, President of The Luggage Club.
