Zero Baggage – travel without your luggage


Ever found yourself packing for several seasons at once? Or going somewhere for business with a quick side trip for leisure as well? Luggage solutions, while often getting groovier and more ergonomic, are mostly tailored to the “cram more stuff in less space” philosophy. This makes for heavy bags, slow Customs checkpoints, and trying to repack your overstuffed bags when you start to head for home.


Zerobaggage is a new take on travel that intends to revolutionise the way we view packing for travel. The idea is that you can rent clothing in any style in any supported destination city, whether you need business wear or clothes fitting the local custom Zerobaggage will provide. Instead of packing a bikini in with your business suits in checked baggage, just hire the suits at your destination and just throw the bikini into your carry-on bag. For frequent travellers they also say they will hold (and clean) your own clothing for you so that you can leave your linen suits in Casablanca for your next visit.

It’s still in concept stage so there is no pricing information, but it’s an interesting idea that we think will be worth following. Stay tuned!

Travel with a light carry on bag and take no checked luggage. Have what you want when you want it. Feel good about doing this by knowing that you are borrowing local items and services that follow a cradle to cradle, ecological model. zerobaggage is an opportunity for seamless travel and weightless living. Enabling you to “live light and travel right”.

  • Hmm seems expensive – a cheaper thing is to buy vacuum pack bags – a weeks worth of clothing sucks down into a quarter of the size, meaning you can easily go hand luggage only …

  • how do you get that weeks worth of clothing back into your carry-on AFTER customs opens it up?

  • Cheaper to ship your luggage 2nd Day UPS to your destination hotel, waiting for you when you arrive. Then have the front desk ship it back. I've been doing that for years when traveling "heavy" somewhere. Cheaper than paying airline surcharge fees for excess or overweight/size luggage.

    • Does that work with kids Rick?
      I'd love to have mine waiting for me in the hotel instead of having to endure the flight over with them.
