Some airlines are now charging for carry-on bags, making upcharges a painful downside of flying on a budget airline.
Introducing Take OFF Luggage! This travel solution is putting the budget back into traveling by disrupting airline baggage fees – using the airline’s own rules to score a win!
The wheels pop off and the bag’s compact size transforms it from a carry-on into an under-the-seat personal item which passengers can take onboard for free.
Take OFF Luggage, which retails at $119, could save passengers an estimated $80 – $200 on just one trip alone. It is available now at takeoffluggage.com and on Amazon.
“Being a frequent budget airline passenger, to save costs, I could not believe when they started actually charging me to roll my own bag to my flight and lift it up into the overhead bin,” said Take OFF Luggage Founder Stephen Davis.
“Since under seat bags are still free, I tried to find a bag that size that would still hold everything I needed to carry.”
Davis said he couldn’t find a suitable alternative bag, noting that he once traveled with a friend who solved his problem by packing a book bag.
He searched high and low for a sophisticated luggage-style bag that was small enough to qualify as a personal item.
Then the realization struck him – without the wheels many of the smaller high-quality carry-on rolling bags would indeed fit under the seat of the aircraft.
That’s when he decided to create the perfect luggage for his budget traveling needs, a bag that would not require compromising on luggage space or traveling style.
The innovative bag is built with four 360 degree spinning wheels that make walking with the luggage a breeze, and removing the wheels as easy as pushing a button.
With wheels off, the suitcase has carry-on capacity – but is still the size of a fee-free personal item.
