At all levels, the notion of luxurious living is really about accessing convenience. And I’m loving that my own international gateways to the world, London Heathrow Terminals 1-5 now offers the innovative ‘on-demand’ baggage delivery service – AirPortr.

The brainchild of Portr, the travel-technology company, set up by three (previously) frustrated frequent flyers – AirPortr has recently extended its service at Heathrow to include Terminal 4, so it is now available at all Terminals – Arriving and Departing. Gone are the days of dealing with baggage (both emotional and real)! The idea is that the way in which people travel can be fundamentally changed, putting travellers back in control of their own agenda rather than being weighed down. After all, an increase in efficiency is an increase in luxury – what the nifty marketing bods at the company like to call ‘Luggage Freedom’.

AirPortr aims to deliver your bags within hours, between your home, hotel or office in London and London Heathrow Airport – providing same-day, on-demand bag free transfers – a seamless end-to-end journey. In addition, all luggage can be GPS tracked in real time from a smartphone, after being scanned, tagged and sealed. But for ultimate peace of mind, all drivers are insured up to £10,000.

AirPortr can be pre-booked or on the day of travel from any mobile or desktop device. Bags are either dropped off at the airport by a real-person (also called an AirPortr), before being securely and promptly transported by an AirPortr driver to their London destination. Alternatively, bags are collected from any London location and delivered to the airport in time for your flight.
