Makers of Value-added Travelware Step-up Their Commitment to Travelers with Critical Expert Information and an Easy-to-Use Checklist

New York, N.Y. October 11, 2005 – Briggs & Riley, a leading brand of quality luggage products is offering one-stop shopping for travel information through its online “Travel Center.” Briggs & Riley has extended its dedication to travelers by providing expert travel tips, a travel checklist and an extraordinary portal with links to a wide variety of important travel information.

Briggs & Riley vice president of marketing, Jim Lahren said, “The Briggs & Riley Travel Center is a natural value-add we offer not only to our customers, but to any traveler. Our goal is to build a lifelong relationship with our consumers to improve their travel experience. The travel center is one way that we do this. Our expert information and user-friendly site match the superior engineering and lifetime warranty associated with our travelware.” Lahren explained that today’s difficult travel environment makes good information more important than ever. The travel center is a portal that meets all the needs of a traveler in one location. From airline reservations, to baggage weight restrictions, to a travel checklist, the company is dedicated to meeting the needs of the traveling public.

The Briggs and Riley Travel Center offers information and expert tips for every type of traveler. Briggs & Riley doesn’t know your wardrobe, but its comprehensive travel checklist lets you pack everything else you need without thinking.

Within the travel center, vacationers, explorers and executives can address all their different travel needs quickly and easily. All airlines are made accessible at travelers’ fingertips along with links to international reference guides including all current Federal and International travel regulations, up to date currency exchanges and embassy contacts.

  • You can ask for a private security screening if you are traveling with more than one child
