AIRPORTELs have served thousands of travelers in the first year

We’ve been helping thousands of travelers enjoy their journey and vacation in Bangkok, Thailand. It has been a year since AIRPORTELs served Baggage Delivery to travelers from airbnb in Bangkok, Thailand. Thank you for your great support. We are glad that all of our kind guests are benefited from this easy, convenient and reliable service.

Many of you might not know how we come up with it and why? Here’s the AIRPORTELs story! It starts from a discussion with a friend doing airbnb in 2014. While he’s hosting guests and tenants, most of them will have problems about their baggage for early check-in or late check-out.  After looking for proper solutions, we noticed that there’s no coin lockers nor deposit service available at public transfers.

Months later, our team placed the 1st electronic locker “Lockbox” at airport rail link station, Makkasan Station, successfully. However, this is not enough! Locker service is not the ultimate solution for travelers to enjoy vacation in Bangkok as they still need to carry their bags from hotel to the locker and they need to get back to pick the baggage up from the locker again. Somehow, I’d think that if my baggage could have legs and walk by itself, and that’s the “Aha” moment.

(Note: 3 transit systems, BTS, MRT and ARL, are available in Bangkok. Though some of the stations of each system are adjacent to each other, travelers have to pass through long walkway and stairs to get into the other one. Imagine that you carry your 20 kg, roughly 40 lbs., or even heavier, baggage to climb up several stairways and, probably, many times that make you wanna cry. You might think about taking a taxi. Yes, it could be the solution, but make sure you really realize the notorious traffic jam in the city.)

Lockbox, coinlocker, storage, locker

The idea is really simple, as the pain point comes at airport and hotel. If we can connect the places seamlessly, travelers can enjoy more and spend their time wisely! Think how tough it is when you drag your bags in the heat, or the storm can just come to fall on your head by surprise. Thus, we came up with this new service “AIRPORTELs baggage Delivery” to deliver travelers baggage to and from airports or hotels in Bangkok. Now, you don’t need to worry about your belongings. Think baggage needs, think AIRPORTELs. We’ll take care of your baggage, while you can travel with hands-free.

It’s a great gift for us on this meaningful day. Travelers stay at airbnb are available to use the service too.

How to keep luggage safe while you go traveling?

The old saying goes about journeys and destinations leaves out the telling of airports. There’s a reason for that, for example, you won’t get too many positive experience from the departure and arrival of a trip. For example, waiting in lines, flight delays and cancellations, and, of course, lost or stolen luggage .There’re a lot problems and risks that can go wrong during traveling. Losing luggage could be an inevitable event for frequent travelers. Millions of bags are either left behind, sent to the wrong city or simply forgotten every year. With the phenomenon, various companies have been creating lots of luggage security system, such as a master key or padlock, for constant flyer choices to secure their bags.

Here are 3 ways to ensure your luggage are well-packed and secured.

1. External master key

1414118549-image-o

Speaking of the most affordable luggage lock, an external master key which is worldwide known as the most wallet friendly prices but yet still have some disadvantages. The cheapest one you can find is about 1$, but they are relatively simple, low security locks. The shackles have a small diameter and are easy to be clipped by using bolt cutters or similar equipment. Luggage locks with a pin tumbler lock usually use only three or four pins. Such feature makes them very frail and easy to be broken, even with tools such as a bent paperclip. However, there is a wide range of quality of luggage locks. You could buy the one from a good supplier with better quality (and higher price). Lockers with Travel Sentry identifying mark (a red diamond) are accepted by the TSA (Transportation Security Administration). This type of locks requires access to luggage without the passenger being present. The airport’s security can open and re-lock it conveniently without having to break the lock.

2. Travel sentry 3 dial combination Locking luggage strap

The other most common used item to secure your luggage is this 3 dial combination Locking luggage strap. With affordable prices and effective performance, the strap is applied by users around the world. This strap works by wrapping around luggage, both side from top to bottom or from left to right side. Not only this strap will keep your suitcase closed and add the extra security of a combination lock, but it also allows TSA inspectors to open your luggage without destroying the lock and has an indicator window to let you know when they do. Each Locking Luggage Strap has a special TSA code which is used by inspectors to open the Strap with secured tools and re-lock it after inspection. Whenever they do, the window will changes from green to red when the Locking Luggage Strap has been opened by TSA. Another advantage is that you find your suitcase a lot more quickly when you reach your destination as the strap’s color will make it easier to recognize your suitcase.

3. Luggage tracking device

05-Trakdot

This luggage tracking device usually comes in a palm-sized plastic device that slips discreetly into your duffel bag or suitcase and updates the owner on its location via an app, SMS, email or the website of the brand you bought. You can set up customized text and email notifications or view location pins via Google Maps. You can keep tracking on your luggage at anywhere your phone works, rather than rely on battery draining GPS.

Luggage tracking device relies on a quad-band GSM chip and triangulation, which allows it to last up to two weeks on a fresh pair of AAs battery, which are generously included in the packaging. The Luggage tracking device is more costly the other tools as you can follow up your luggage footprint. This device is most likely the most secured luggage security item but also one the most expensive ways to secure your luggage.

AIRPORTELs helps travelers travel easily in the Big Mango. By delivering bags in advance, you can travel to anywhere with your hands and hassle free.

ARL Luggage Delivery Bangkok Thailand

Airport rail link is a rail way project built to serve travelers from Suvarnabhumi Airport to central Bangkok. Travelers don’t have to spend a lot of money by taking taxis and get stuck in the notorious Bangkok traffic jam. Bangkokian has a saying that “In the other countries, traffic will be bad twice during rush hours. However, we got only once everyday, and it’s 24/7”! ARL offers the cheapest and the most convenient way to go straight to the heart of Bangkok without worrying about the traffic.

Suvarnabhumi BKK AIRPORTELs Bangkok Thailand

There are 8 stations along the way starting from Suvarnabhumi station – Lad Kra Bang – Ban Tub Chang – Hua Mak – Ram Kum Hang – Mak Ka San – Rat Cha Pra Rob – Phyathai. The train can take maximum passenger of 745 persons. It would take only about 40 minutes to travel between the terminal stations, so this allows travelers to spend more time with the Bangkok vibes.

However, getting on to ARL train might seem a bit complicated. But,  it is as easy as BTS, only that ARL uses token but BTS use tickets. Moreover, ARL and BTS are connected, travelers can easily hop on a BTS immediately once they have arrive the Phyathai station.

Nevertheless, there is one thing those who bring many baggage or XL size baggage should know, at the end of the railway at Phyathai station, there is no escalators to accommodate you. It will be tiring to carry the baggage down stairs by yourself. So be careful with this issue.

Traveling Tips – BTS Bangkok Thailand

In Thailand, BTS sky train is one of the most convenient public transportation in the heart of Bangkok. You can go from one place to another with just a blink of an eye. Bangkok is big, but BTS sky train covers most of the tourist attractions ranging from Mo Chit station to Bearing station in the east or to Bang Wa station in the west. Travelers might find this BTS sky train unfamiliar and encounter with inconveniences. Besides, travelers have problems with their bags and baggage deposit service. This article is about how to use BTS sky train as a local!

BTS-map Bangkok.com Thailand Deposit

 

First of all, I would like to point out that there is an information center in every station so if you have any question please feel free to ask them. Now let’s talk about tickets:

There are 3 types of tickets you can choose from; Smart pass ticket, One day pass ticket and single round ticket. Smart pass ticket is suitable for those who have to use BTS sky train every day because the price will be cheaper but the thing is that you have to top up the ticket with some amount of money. One day pass ticket allows you to hop on the train unlimited times and the expiry time of the ticket is at midnight so watch out. Last but not least, single round ticket is a popular ticket for normal people. The ticket will be taken back at you final destination.

*This is an advice for you tour in Bangkok. The ticket that is suitable for every tourist is single round ticket and one day pass ticket depending on your traveling plan. For example, if you have to take the train for more than 4 times a day, one day pass ticket is your best choice. One day pass ticket also allows you to go on the train without buying another ticket. In rush hours, you can save ages to avoid the endless queue.  In additional, you can also take the ticket back as a souvenir too. On the other hand, if you only use BTS once or twice a day, single round ticket would worth the money.

So, how is it? It is pretty easy right? Now you can enjoy the BTS sky train as a local!!

In addition, I have another trick to be more local is that you have to stand in the train without holding on to the rail. This would be fun too.

For those who do not wish to carry their gigantic baggage around BTS station, AIRPORTELs, Thailand’s first baggage delivery service, can treat you just right. AIRPORTELs allows travelers from around the world to enjoy the capital city of Thailand with their hands free!!
