Packing Light

Packing for a holiday or business trip involves multiple hassles. There’s the packing and unpacking process itself,  the tedium of carrying a large suitcase around, and the time and financial cost associated with checking bags in for a flight. A new US based service called unPack attempts to address these issues by  delivering a set of essentials to their customers destination.

unPack have identified three areas of travel difficulty — taking toiletries through security, remembering the right appliance chargers and buying specific clothing appropriate for the destination and its season. With the service, users are given a set of toiletries, and can choose to rent a clothing bundle of designer brands to suit the local weather conditions for the duration of their trip.  When it’s time to check out, users leave the clothes and accessories with the hotel for pickup, and travel back to the airport as lightly as they arrived.

The unPack service is currently  limited to New York and Boston, with hopes of adding further destinations in the near future.

Something to copy in Europe perhaps?
