Avoid Luggage Fees By Turning Your Bags into Advertisements
One of the most annoying parts of traveling is paying for checked baggage, especially if you're traveling as a family or you're a female (we always overpack).
Now there's a solution to avoid paying those extra fees. Today.com reports:
Orion Travel Tech, founded by a former Continental Airlines flight attendant, offers passengers the opportunity to turn their luggage into mobile billboards in exchange for covering checked-bag fees.
According to the company website, customers can personalize their luggage as they please but you have to choose from a list of advertisers, such as Geico, sports teams, and even local charities.
In addition to covering your baggage fees, Orion will also offer you some perks like access to airport lounges and a luggage-tampering alarm system that alerts you if your bag has been messed with.
The new program launches at the end of November.
