This combination of luggage shipping and luxury home exchange properties enable travelers to have a convenient and relaxing experience.
Boston, MA and Brentwood, TN – March 23, 2015
Luggage Forward, the worldwide leader in doorstep to destination luggage delivery, and 3RD HOME, the premier reciprocal travel club for luxury second homeowners, today announced a strategic partnership designed to provide 3RD HOME members with a more convenient and relaxing way to travel.
Home exchange is increasing in popularity even amongst the luxury travel segment. Smart, high-net-worth consumers enjoy knowing that they are getting a great return on the investment they have already made in their second home as they exchange it for other accommodations. However, that does not mean these individuals want any less of a luxury experience. As these consumers are booking their vacations that are geared towards comfort and convenience, travel companies need to offer solutions that will fill the distinct demands of these travelers. The 3rd HOME and Luggage Forward partnership was designed with this in mind – 3RD HOME members can experience luxury properties as well as ship their luggage, skis or golf clubs ahead for stress-free travel.
“With the rise in checked baggage fees and continued inconvenience of carrying and checking luggage at the airport, it continues to be beneficial to ship luggage ahead,” said Zeke Adkins, Co-Founder of Luggage Forward. “Luggage Forward’s worldwide logistics footprint allows us to provide a company like 3RD HOME with a high-reliability doorstep to destination luggage delivery solution for their members.”
The partnership allows travelers to have bags picked up from their home or office and delivered directly to their 3RD HOME destination worldwide for a discounted rate. At the conclusion of their stay, 3RD HOME Members can have their luggage sent back to their residence as well.
“We continually look for ways to enhance the 3RD HOME Member experience,” said Steve Zacks, CMO of 3RD HOME. “Having your bags arrive at your destination on time and without effort adds to the luxury vacation experience. We are excited to introduce Luggage Forward to our Members.”
