Everyone's least favourite part about flying with golf clubs is lugging them onto the rental car shuttle bus.
Those buses are usually crowded, especially at airports like Dallas-Fort Worth or Phoenix where all the car companies share the same shuttle, and there often is no space in the luggage rack.
Traveling golfers have two good options: Taking their clubs with them or shipping them ahead. The average traveller gets socked $35 or $45 for a second piece of luggage such as a golf bag. Round trip, that adds up.
Shipping your clubs ahead is even more expensive, usually $60 or more each way, and one well-known golf club shipper picks your clubs up four or five days before your departure and doesn’t return them for four or five days until after you return. So you're without your clubs for days at a time while you're home.
A bad third option is renting a set of clubs at a course but you frequently get clubs ill-suited for you.
Now there's finally a good third option: Lendr.
Lendr is a Guelph, Ontario based startup that complements the pre-existing consumer good rental industry by providing a free-to-use interface where users can browse and filter all nearby rental items by distance, price and more. Then, you can simply have them delivered to you and picked up and brought back when you're done.
Say goodbye to hectic travels and excessive baggage fees!
