The DUFL Personal Valet Service Aims to Simplify Business Travel

Luxury travel service DUFL is out to "change the way the world travels" with a brand new app designed for iPhone and iPad users who'd rather not fuss with luggage on their next business trip.

A personal valet that cleans, stores, and ships your business attire to your hotel at your next destination, DUFL allows road warriors to pack their suitcase virtually on their smartphone or tablet.

The service means that users can travel conveniently without having to haul around luggage, making the traverse through airport security easier. 

The unique offering isn't free, however. Although customers don't have to pay to download the app, the service costs $9.95 per month and an additional $99 per roundtrip. That fee ncludes three-day shipping and three-day return shipping to the DUFL warehouse, where the items will be cleaned and stored until the next trip. 

Overnight shipping is also available for an additional charge of $49 each way.

DUFL founder and CEO Bill Rinehart explained how the service works on Fox Business' Varney & Co. last week:

If there's a knock on DUFL as it currently functions, Jen Leo of the Los Angeles Times points out that it can be difficult to experiment with. 

"There's no good way to test the app before registering," wrote Leo. "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," concludes Leo.

While DUFL has plans to expand the service internationally, it's only currently available for business travel within the U.S., according to Leo. But international travelers who frequent the U.S. can also sign up for DUFL.
