Rented clothing for travel

Zero Baggage aims to change the travel experience by letting its users fly without checked luggage, instead borrowing items from local suppliers for the duration of their trip.
Members of Zero Baggage can also buy items or store personal effects at frequently visited places. The service also has a community feature, enabling travellers to connect with people at their destination.
In a similar vein, the Virtual Suitcase lets users borrow new and pre-loved items from local retailers at their destination. They can pick items on arrival or choose from the online store.
Given the rate at which people travel nowadays, these sorts of services are sure to be well received, particularly from younger sightseers hoping to keep costs as low as possible.
And as the idea of location-independent living gains ground, it’s potentially a precursor of other businesses serving this niche too.
