Babierge and Kid & Coe partner to offer an even easier way to travel with little ones
Partnership offers baby gear rental for parents traveling with young children across the USA
November 14, 2017 – From today, luxury family travel firm Kid & Coe has partnered with leading baby equipment rental platform, Babierge (baby + concierge), to help families travel light. Say goodbye to trudging through busy airports with bulky baby gear, and exorbitant excess baggage fees, and hello to a new and easier way of traveling as a family.
“While in Los Angeles last year with my young baby, being able to order a crib, linens and toys for my baby from Babierge to suit the child-friendly property I had rented made my stay a whole lot easier. Kid & Coe is in the business of making family travel simpler, and this partnership for us is a no-brainer,” said Kid & Coe founder, Zoie Kingsbery Coe.
“Now in 100 travel destinations in the US and Canada, Babierge partners with leading travel brands that understand the unique needs of traveling families,” said Fran Maier, Co-founder and CEO of Babierge. “Kid & Coe is an ideal partner, as our goals are closely aligned -- to help traveling families get the most enjoyment from their vacation.”
For many parents, travel with a baby can be daunting. Babierge takes some of that stress away by delivering and setting up a large selection of clean quality gear, and returning to pick it up on departure day. While many of Kid & Coe’s properties are already set up for young children, this service supplements the items provided, meaning that all the gear, games and toys a traveling family needs can be easily procured in the locations served by Babierge.
The launch of this partnership on Kid & Coe coincides with a move towards offering an enhanced range of services for families, including a concierge partnership with Key Concierge (www.key.co) and itineraries to inspire family travel from Babyccino (www.babyccinokids.com).

Kid & Coe launched in 2013 with an aim to simplify family travel. With hand-picked accommodations around the world that suit families who love to travel, plus insight from local parents about how to get the best out of their destination, we’re revolutionizing how families travel.
Founder Zoie Kingsbery Coe created Kid & Coe in 2013 out of personal necessity. For years she had been traveling the world, kids in tow, and saw that the hotel accommodations that suited a touring couple no longer fit the needs of her growing family. Zoie began seeking out kid-friendly property rentals that made her family feel at home wherever they were in the world. As increasing numbers of parents asked Zoie to share her travel expertise and property secrets, Kid & Coe was born.
The company currently lists over 1,000 properties in over 50 countries worldwide, all with a focus on family. Babierge is the leading baby gear rental marketplace, helping families “Pack Light, Travel Far, and Make Lasting Family Memories.” As a two-sided marketplace, the Babierge platform enables on-the-ground Trusted Partners, independent contractors, to build successful businesses doing meaningful work serving traveling families and grandparents with the clean, quality baby gear they need. Typical rental items include full-size cribs, high chairs, strollers, car seats and both indoor and outdoor toy packages. Headquartered in both San Francisco and Albuquerque, the company has grown to over one hundred destinations since launching in mid-2016.

Destination Hotels Announces Partnership With Babierge
Collaboration Marks the First Hotel Brand to Partner with Leading Baby Gear Rental Service for Hassle-Free Family Travel
DENVER, July 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Destination Hotels, a collection of award-winning hotels and resorts in premier vacation destinations around the United States and Caribbean, today announces its partnership with Babierge, offering guests quality baby gear to use during their stays and allowing traveling families to enjoy all the comforts of home. Babierge is the leading baby gear rental marketplace, connecting traveling families with local "Trusted Partners" --
independent concierges who rent out, deliver, and set up a wide variety of baby gear in a guest's hotel room, and then return to pick it up on departure day. Babierge's inventory ranges from small comforts, such as books and toys, to bulkier equipment such as cribs, strollers, and Pack 'n Plays. The partnership between Destination Hotels and Babierge was created to enable a seamless family travel experience and is the first-of-its-kind between a leading hotel brand and a baby gear rental marketplace.
"Destination Hotels is continuously striving to make the vacation experience stress-free and enjoyable for our guests and that's exactly what this partnership with Babierge is helping us accomplish," said Jamie Sabatier, CEO, Two Roads Hospitality, parent company of Destination Hotels. "Babierge takes away the hassle of packing and transporting baby gear on vacation so that families can focus on what's important – spending quality time with one another."
"When it comes to traveling families, Babierge and Destination Hotels share a common mission – to help guests have fun, restful and memorable vacations with their children," said Fran Maier, CEO and Co-Founder of Babierge. "When babies sleep well in comfortable cribs, and are engaged and play happily with age-appropriate equipment and toys during the day, the entire family can relax and recharge."
Babierge's mission is to help traveling families pack light, travel far, and make lasting memories. To use the service, families visit www.babierge.com/destinationhotels and select their desired gear as well as delivery and pickup dates and times. Parents leave information about their children's ages and interests when ordering so that Babierge Trusted Partners, who deliver, set up, and pick up the rental equipment, can customize toy packages to delight the entire family. The Babierge baby gear will then be delivered to the Destination Hotels property and set up in the guest's room for the length of their stay. A typical guest rental from Babierge could include such items as the BOB Revolution PRO Jogging Stroller ($12/day); InLighten Cradling Swing ($8/day); BabyBjorn Travel Crib ($12/day); EvenFlow Baby Exersaucer ($5/day); toys and books, and more. Rental prices vary by market.
