It’s hard to imagine a time before roller bags, and wheels are now features on bags of all sizes and shapes. Taking the trend to a whole new level is the Transmover by Villagio, a luggage scooter that has a top speed of 12 mph. Even if your next flight is in another terminal, you’ll never have to worry about missing your connection again.


Why pull a carry-on when there’s one to carry you?

There’s an unwritten rule of travel: the later you check in at the airport, the farther your gate will be from security. And even if you’re a master of packing light, it’s not fun racing through the airport dragging your carry-on behind you as you hear the boarding announcements for your flight.  

Well, that’s not quite true. It wasn’t fun to race through the airport—until now. Because The Transmover isn’t just another suitcase on wheels. It’s a suitcase on a three-wheeled motorized scooter.  

With its hand throttle switch and dual hand and foot brakes, this carry-on is fully equipped to be taken out for a test drive. And even when you have time to spare, it turns a trek through the terminal into a ride at the playground.  

 

 

The exterior is constructed of aluminum alloy, the telescopic handle can be adjusted to your height and comfort preferences, and the rechargeable lithium-ion battery is easy to attach and detach. The Transmover folds easily when the scooter component is not in use, and it is approved for storage in the cabin. If you have questions or need additional information from the manufacturer, use the contact form on the website.  

You will have to store it in the overhead bin because sadly, you won’t be allowed to ride it in the aisles of the plane. But with its quick fold-down function, you’ll be able to ride it again at the end of your journey faster than the flight attendants can say, “buh-bye!”
