Waiting to pick up your checked luggage at baggage claim can make an already long travel day that much longer. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could skip baggage claim altogether, yet still get your checked bags to your hotel or your home? United Airlines has a new baggage delivery service that does just that.
Customers can have their checked bags delivered directly to their final destinations – within 100 miles of their arrival airports – and skip baggage claim upon arrival. Baggage delivery by BagsVIP will initially be available to customers departing from any domestic airport and arriving in Boston, Chicago, Honolulu, Houston, Los Angeles and Orlando. The airline plans to expand the service to more than 190 domestic airports in the coming months.
Standard rates for bag delivery within a 40-mile radius are as follows:
1 bag $29.95
2 bags $39.95
3-8 bags $49.95
Delivery is available up to a 100-mile radius for an additional charge that varies by distance. Delivery pricing is in addition to any standard checked-bag charges that might otherwise apply.
Customers can order the service directly from BagsVIP online, or by calling 1-877-847-0045.
