Marriott Rewards and The Luggage Club take the Hassle out of Checking Bags

Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Thursday, 26 June 2008

With many airlines now imposing more restrictions on checked luggage, Marriott Rewards, Marriott Internationals loyalty program, and The Luggage Club have teamed up to allow members to redeem points for gift cards to ship luggage door to door. 

The Luggage Club is positioned to meet the needs of this growing segment of travelers that has decided to travel stress-free by shipping their luggage in advance of their trip. Travelers baggage can be picked up at their home, office or location of choice and delivered to their final 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 that can be shipped.

We want to make travel as easy as possible for our members, said Ed French, senior vice president, Marriott Rewards. This is a service that we think will be extremely valuable to our members who spend many of their days navigating airports.

It is our responsibility as a business in the travel industry to step up to the plate and make travel more hassle-free, added Todd Kempinger, CEO of The Luggage Club. Our goal is to give our customers the convenience and peace of mind that their luggage will be delivered to their travel destination on time.

Marriott Rewards members can earn 10 Marriott Rewards points per dollar on services and redeem points for gift cards in increments of $50, $100, $250 and $500.
