Luggage Loss, we’ve all had the experience of waiting (patiently?) at the carousel for our luggage and waiting and waiting, people watching as some folks elbow their way to the front of the feeder ramp while others kindly assist with the awkward removal of heavy cases and we continue waiting with increasing anxiety until everyone retrieves their belongings and makes their way to ground transportation leaving us with the disheartening realization, our luggage is missing.
This could be a good psychological study of personalities as to how one processes the loss of physical materials necessary for their business or vacation. On group tours the emotions spill over to others like a domino effect as time is spent trying to solve the matter. The degree of professionalism among airline agents varies during the tracking, retrieval and hopefully delivery.
On a recent trip to French Lick, three of us writers were waiting for the last passenger in our shuttle foursome at the airport due to such luggage loss. We all listened sympathetically to his woeful tale of how the airline had no clue regarding the whereabouts of his golf clubs. We empathized, “That’s so frustrating.” Then we said, “You should have a LugLoc.”
By tapping the app in a smart phone to trace bags, golfers or airline passengers can tap worldwide cellular phone networks in real time to trace bags and view the information on a mobile device app screen with LugLoc. Bluetooth® proximity technology inside can provide close-proximity tracking to find bags at the airport carousel or at the golf course. The rechargeable battery in the LugLoc device lasts over 15 days. LugLoc makes golf bags smart and allows golfers to take control, knowing the precise location of their equipment during travel anywhere – or any time.
When Brian’s clubs finally arrived, we all joked at how he kept them under watch on his balcony in the “eighth wonder of the world” – the atrium dome at the West Baden Springs Hotel. He was not going to lose sight of them regardless of how out of place they looked in the elegant setting.
On our return flight, we too had one set of clubs missing. Our LugLoc? Sadly it was left behind in haste 2,000 miles away. Fortunately in our case, the clubs were quickly located in Rochester instead of Syracuse. It would take three days to be delivered to our doorstep, one day before the next scheduled golf event.
LugLoc is a piece of technology that we will take the time to activate and try out in our travels – just in case, because you never know when luggage loss will happen. For more information, see www.h4distribution.com/lugloc/.WHAT'S YOUR REACTION?
