No more packing dilemmas; a new start-up wants to pack your suitcase for you

Imagine a trip with no suitcases, no baggage fees, no hasty weight checks at the airport, no anxious waiting to see if your bag made it to your destination and definitely no wearing all your clothes in one go. It sounds like a dream but it can be a reality for US travellers shortly with a new start-up offering to pack and deliver everything you need for your vacation directly to your hotel.

UnPack is a start up company with a simple concept; they’ll pack and deliver clothes, accessories and toiletries to you on your holiday so you don’t need to bring them with you. It will enable you to travel lightly and get through airports and cities more quickly, as well as saving you the hassle of picking and choosing your perfect wardrobe items for your short trip.

This unPack is headed to the #poconos for #MemorialDay #memorialdayweekend #funinthesun

Travellers can choose their size and clothing style as well as their type of holiday, whether it’s for business or at the beach and the weather of their destination. When travellers are finished their holiday, they can simply attach the prepaid label to the box and drop it back to their hotel front desk for an easy return (don’t worry, you keep the toiletries, underwear and socks). If you prefer to bring your own clothes but lack some complimentary gear, you can also order a ‘companion pack’ intended to supplement your own stuff with items like rain jackets, umbrellas or winter gloves. The service is currently available in the United States and costs $20 per day, for a maximum of a 6-day trip.
