Fly bag­gage-free with DUFL app

You’ve heard about a mov­able feast, but what about a mov­able closet?

Los Angeles Times - - TRAVEL - — JEN LEO

Name: DUFL Avail­able: iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Re­quires iOS8 or later

Cost: The app is free; ser­vice is $9.95 a month plus $99 per round trip

What it does: The app is a valet and vir­tual closet for busi­ness trav­el­ers. DUFL stores and main­tains your clothes, ac­ces­sories and toi­letries at its ware­house, then ships the items you want when and where youwant them. The ser­vice is avail­able only within the United States and for in­ter­na­tional trav­el­ers who travel here reg­u­larly.

What’s hot: You can do it all from the app. The vir­tual closet is easy to use: Choose your clothes, or­der ship­ments and mon­i­tor their progress. Have two trips back to back? No prob­lem. Some of your clothes can be sent to New York in bag No. 1, while oth­ers are sent in bag No. 2 to San Fran­cisco. Stan­dard ship­ping is three days; ex­pe­dited ship­ping is an ex­tra $49 per trip.

What’s not: There’s no good way to test the app be­fore reg­is­ter­ing. When I tried, it asked for an in­vi­ta­tion code. Any­one can re­quest one, but it took them three days to get back to me with the code. Once you’re in though, it could re­ally save you time and lighten your load.
