Portr, the London based travel-tech start up have just announced that AirPortr, their same day luggage delivery service, has partnered with Gatwick Express. Together they are delivering efficient and effortless journeys between Central London and Gatwick Airport.
AirPortr is a London-based same-day luggage delivery service, transporting bags to and from London Heathrow, Gatwick and City airports, as well as homes, hotels and offices in the capital from just £15.
The service helps passengers to make the most of their day in London bag-free, whether they have an early flight into the city and don’t want to carry bags around before checking into a hotel, or have a late flight and don’t want to pay extra for storage.
London airport to hotel, home or office bag delivery
Passengers flying into London’s airports are able to book online, over the phone, or when they land at the airport and drop their luggage with an AirPortr concierge before heading into the city.
They’ll be able to travel to their destination before being reunited with their bags at their accomodation later that day.
Luggage delivery from London address to airport
For passengers flying out of London, AirPortr can pick up luggage from their home, hotel or office early on the day of travel, allowing them to make the most of their last day in London bag-free.
The bags can be collected from one of AirPortr’s concierges at the company’s meeting point in the airport departures lounge.
Bag-tracking and damage cover for luggage
Airportr allows passengers to travel lighter, quicker and with less stress around London.
There are no bag size or weight restrictions, and all bags are scanned and sealed with GPS real-time bag tracking, so passengers can be safe in the knowledge that their bags are exactly where they want them to be.
The company provides £10,000 loss or damage cover with every booking.
Pricing for luggage delivery services
AirPortr pricing is as follows:
- £15 to or from the local airport area
- £25 to or from Central London addresses
- £35 to or from Greater London addresses
- Each additional bag is just £5, regardless of weight or size
- Customers receive a 10% discount when they make a return booking
Carousel collection for British Airways customers
AirPortr can eliminate waiting times for passengers on domestic British Airways flights from Glasgow, Edinburgh or the Isle of Man into London City Airport.
Domestic British Airways passengers are able to bypass the luggage carousel and head straight into the city when booking a carousel collection upgrade at London City Airport.
This upgrade is currently complimentary for all British Airways Executive Club members when booked with a standard AirPortr delivery, and costs £10 for all other passengers.
Discount bookings for Gatwick Express passengers
AirPortr has partnered with Gatwick Express, one of the fastest ways into central London from Gatwick Airport, to further ensure passengers are able to make the most of their time in London.
Passengers travelling to and from Gatwick Airport on the Gatwick Express from Victoria Station are eligible for discounts on the AirPortr service. By showing a Gatwick Express ticket upon booking, customers can receive £5 off a single AirPortr luggage delivery, and £10 off a return.
Travel technology start-up Portr is delighted to announce that Tony Smith CBE has joined the company as senior government affairs advisor; and Danielle Sharp has joined as head of security and compliance.
