A service offering door-to-door transport of skis, snowboard and luggage has launched for skiers and snowboarders this winter season.

bagSOLO will transport sports equipment and luggage to ski resorts around the world, with prices starting from £109 for a round trip to the Alps. Luggage prices vary depending on size and weight and are collected from a pick up address between 9am and 6pm Monday to Friday, and delivered to the accommodation provider one day before arrival.

The service is not just for Europe — bagSOLO will deliver to any ski resort in the world so if you’re headed to Japan or North America you can use it too. There is an Express Service for bookings done up to two days before arrival date in resort. bagSOLO will also transport bikes and golf clubs.

The company aims not only to make travelling less hassle for skiers — but is not always cheaper. Carrying skis on Easyjet costs £60 return and £80 on Ryanair £80. But fly British Airways to the US or Canada and you’ll expect to pay £130 — whereas bagSOLO economy service costs £119.

The company is already working with Madame Vacances, TGSki and Ski Armadillo as well as the British Ski and Snowboard teams.

“We know there are skiers and snowboarders out there who want to take their own equipment away with them, but are frustrated with airline charges and the inconvenience of having to squeeze their luggage into cars, carry it through airports and have it squashed against them in transfer vehicles,” said bagSOLO managing director Mike Coyne.

“bagSOLO provides another, better way. Our greatest challenge is to change customer behaviour to use our service as opposed to their current options, which we plan to do through our industry-wide advertising campaign.

We are already seeing travel companies, tour operators and Chalet / private hotel operators, who understand the benefits for them and their customers and several have already partnered with us to provide or recommend the service”.
