Ever wish you could skip the baggage claim area and get straight to your trip? While you could just downsize your luggage and stick with a carry-on, if you just travel with too much to sacrifice  your checked luggage, a new service can help.


Grab My Bag is a new, customer-first luggage delivery service. Here’s how it works.


Once you have an airline reservation, you can book “a grab,” starting at $35. Once you land in your destination, you go about your business, while a vetted luggage courier (called a “grabber”) picks up your luggage from the baggage claim area on your behalf and then delivers it to wherever you request.


One of the best parts? If there are any issues with your luggage — like if it’s lost — Grab My Bag works with the airline and/or airport for you to locate your luggage and get it in your hands as quickly as possible.


Deliveries arrive within four hours and you can book multiple grabs at once for multiple pieces of luggage. Grab My Bag delivers to a range of locations — from hotels to homes, conference centers to businesses — within a 40-mile radius of the airport. As your bag is delivered, you’ll see personalized tracking following your bag, so you can know just about when it’ll arrive.
