Last week I was listening to ABC Radio National’s Life Matters program and there was an interview with Catharine MacIntosh the founder of a new and coming soon concept – Zero Baggage – where you take no luggage, and hire it all before you leave and it’s waiting at your destination for you. The concept is that:
- No luggage = no lost luggage
- Faster travel experience – no waiting in queues at airports to check luggage or pick it up after your flight.
- No luggage means that planes are lighter, therefore fuel costs are reduced, therefore it’s a greener option (less carbon footprint)
- If you have kids you can hire prams/strollers, car seats etc for your destination – if you’ve ever travalled with small kids, you’ll know they have twice the luggage of an adult (if not more!).
