  3. Take a Trip: open your DUFL app and input all of you travel information (dates, hotel, travel period, etc.) and then check off your items you want packed for your trip! when you make it to your hotel, your DUFL will be there waiting for you. (* Standard $99 trip includes 3-day shipping to destination, 3-day return shipping to warehouse and cleaning and processing. Overnight shipping is available at an additional charge of $49 each way.)
  4. Go Home: Once you’re done with your travels simply log on to your app again, schedule a pick up, slap on the provided shipping label and leave at your hotel desk to be picked up by DUFL.

    This idea is brilliant! I think it has a very specific target market, the busiest of travelers, but is something that a frequent flyer could find extremely convenient. What could be more next generation than outsourcing your own packing. DUFL is on to something clever and I think it will continue to succeed as long as the world keeps traveling.
