At last – a solution for my husband! Sorry if that sounds a little weird but he’s a world-class loser. And I don’t mean that in a nasty way. What I do mean is that he is famous for losing important items. Car keys, the iPad, his phone … you name it he’ll lose it. Regularly.
But at last we’ve found the answer – Linquet.
This video explains perfectly.
Isn’t that amazing? And as you can imagine, it’s not only useful at home – it’s invaluable when you’re travelling or if you’re an Airbnb or short-term rental host.
You don’t have to be as absent-minded as my other half to lose things. Whenever he comes dashing into the house because he’s lost his keys (just the other day it was his wallet including credit cards and ID) I smile smugly because I never lose anything.
Ahem, well, rarely. But I admit that I panicked enormously when I lost my phone recently. (In case you’re wondering, the cat was asleep on top of it). After all, my life is on my phone.
And when we travel, there’s even more to worry about – even though there are just the two of us we travel with two bags, two laptops, four phones and iPad and a Kindle. Then there are items such as passports and travel documents, rental car and accommodation keys – and the ramifications of losing any of these things at 2 am in Paris are a little frightening.
So you can see how Linquet quickly became an essential for us.
But there’s even more peace of mind for me. As an Airbnb host, I know only too well how items can disappear from the rental. And I understand why. When guests are in a hurry to pack their belongings to catch their flight or to move on to the next place on their roadtrip schedule, it’s easy for something from the rental to be accidentally packed into their suitcase.
And until we switched to a keypad, guests losing the apartment keys was an expense that we didn’t really need if we were to keep our nightly prices competitive.
