You know that scene in Up in the Air when traveling HR consultant George Clooney gives us all a lesson in how to pack light for flying? I have actually used his advice many times and found it solid. But I’ve found a service — DUFL — that makes packing and lugging luggage a thing of the past.
Here’s how it works: You sign up at DUFL before your trip (well before your trip). You then get a DUFL suitcase in the mail. You pack that with clothes you typically use for travel and send it back to DUFL.
Then, when you’re about to leave on a trip, you use the DUFL app to choose the outfits you want to have with you on the road. DUFL then ships a suitcase with those clothes directly to your hotel. You just show up and meet it there. Then, when you’re headed home, DUFL picks up your suitcase at the hotel, cleans your clothes, and stores them in a DUFL warehouse, ready for your next trip.
If you travel frequently, you know how much easier this would be than packing and repacking your own bags. It’s a bold idea.
Want to give it a try? I got you a deal to make that easier. The service normally costs $9.95 per month for storage and $99 per round trip. But if you use the code DUFLDEAL16 when you sign up, you’ll get six months of storage for free. Just do it before March 31.
