Customers Are Not Always Right. They Are Just Never Wrong.

February 19, 2015 | Entrepreneur
Every business owner and customer-facing employee has heard the saying "the customer is always right." This makes the companies who say it -- and the customers who hear it -- feel good. But it’s simply not always true in the real world. Early on as my company, Luggage Forward, was being developed, I received a valuable piece of advice: "Customers are not always right. They’re just never wrong." This small, but important distinction has enabled me to approach customers' issues in a more productive manner. Read More

Travel tip for 2015: Ship those bags ahead!

February 3, 2015 | Southern Neighbor
Zeke Adkins, co-founder of Luggage Forward (www.luggageforward. com), launched in 2004 as one of the first companies of its kind, says the business model’s time has come. “Luggage Forward was founded on the idea that bringing luggage to the airport and checking it on the airplane is an inefficient and outdated means of getting bags to their destination. Once a bag is packed, the next time it is needed is at the destination – it’s simply a burden at all points in between. We developed Luggage Forward as a smarter, more efficient method of getting bags to where they need to be, and in the process added a significant degree of convenience to the travel process.” Read More

5 Ways to Avoid Paying Checked Baggage Fees

January 12, 2015 | Club Traveler
Paying to check your bags is an inevitable and frustrating part of the modern travel era. Most U.S. airlines charge around $25 each way to check one bag. If you’re flying on Spirit Airlines, which even charges passengers for a carry-on bag, the fee to check a bag is $30-$40 if you pay online and a whopping $100 if you pay at the gate. (For a comparison of each airline’s baggage fees, here’s a handy chart.) For a family of four on a weeklong vacation, those fees can add up to hundreds of dollars. There are a number of ways savvy travelers can avoid paying checked baggage fees. Here are just a few. 5. Ship your bags. It may not cost as much as you think. Services like Luggage Forward will ship your bags to your hotel at prices comparable to what you’d pay for checked bags. And you don’t have to tote them to and from the airport. Read More

Before the cruise

January 5, 2015 | Cruise Report Blog
Today, we are preparing for the long flight from Dallas to Dunedin, New Zealand, where we will embark Silversea Silver Discoverer. Getting to New Zealand from the USA is no simple task. Getting to the port where we will embark Silver Discoverer involves three flights on two different airlines and over 20 hours in the air! In fact, because we will be crossing the International Date Line, we will actually arrive in New Zealand two days after we depart. Multiple connections on multiple airlines is the perfect recipe for lost luggage, not something I really want to deal with. For that reason, we decided to ship our luggage to New Zealand using Luggage Forward (LuggageForward.com). Read More
