MADISON, Wis.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Luggage Club today announced a new agreement with Travelocity, a leading online travel company, which will offer door-to-door luggage delivery to Travelocity customers throughout the world.

“Airline luggage fees have created an entirely new baggage delivery industry,” said Tim Macht with The Luggage Club. “These fees have created a demand among travelers for a cost effective, low maintenance alternative to dragging luggage to, through and from the airport. Recent announcements of new overnight luggage delivery services being offered by airlines indicate that there is a need for luggage delivery service.”

The Luggage Club’s luggage shipping services are offered on Travelocity from the Activities tab of its homepage. Customers can search for the Luggage Club in the “other services” section for locales, both foreign and domestic.

“We recognize the need to offer new service products that make the travel experience more enjoyable for our customers,” said Noreen Henry, vice president hotels and packaging, Travelocity. “We have developed a luggage delivery program with The Luggage Club that will provide more of the services that our customers are looking for.”

The Travelocity/Luggage Club baggage delivery program provides a cost effective, “economy” delivery service. Following is a comparison of several luggage delivery options and their costs (prices reflect round trip delivery):
