8 Steps to Reduce Your Risk of Lost Luggage

On August 24, 2011, in Cruise, Travel, by owentrvl

It’s always a possibility when you take your next trip and check your luggage that it might not make it to your destination. Keith Mulvihill from Budget Travel has a very informative article about luggage.

Here are 8 steps you can take to reduce the risk of losing your luggage:

  • Double-check the tag the airline personnel have attached to your luggage for the correct destination.
  • Indentify your bag in multiple places inside and outside your luggage. 
  • Pack a copy of your itinerary so that airline workers will know where to route your bag.
  • Take a picture or video of what’s inside your bag as you pack. 
  • Before checking your bag, take off any removable straps.
  • Allow time to check in for your flight.
  • Use the airline’s counter to check your bags, not the curbside. 
  • Differentiate your bag with colorful duct tape or use a suitcase that isn’t black or navy.
