Tips to Prevent Luggage Loss

Imagine yourself waiting at the luggage carousel. Sets of luggage then line up in an orderly fashion along the conveyor belt. Then, suddenly, all but your luggage show up.

This is definitely every traveler’s worst nightmare, perhaps the most unforgettable one for travelers who have already come up with their itinerary. Just thinking about the baggage-claim forms that needed to be filled out is one big headache. Add to that the long waiting hours (and missed sites) that you’d have to endure.

So, what will you do to prevent such from happening to you? Here are some tips to keep you from losing your luggage.

Early Check In

Spare baggage handlers the problem of getting confused when loading your luggage once stress sets in by not checking in late. Don’t arrive at the airport with only a few minutes from your departure time as this might backfire at you in the form of mistakenly assigned luggage.

Just check in early. The earlier you check in, the better. It’s the best way to avoid losing your luggage.

Be wary of your carry-on belongings.

A lot of luggage gets lost in connecting flights. But a great number of carry-on belongings are usually left behind in the plane or in the airport terminal. Every week, at least 10,000 laptop bags get lost in US airports with 65 percent getting unclaimed.

Most of these items are forgotten after placing over the conveyor belt in the x-ray section. Sometimes, passengers forget to pick these up especially after going through body scanners.

Protect your identity

Never leave your name and address advertised on your luggage labels. These are what identity thieves take a living from.

Instead, you can use sophisticated tags like SuperSmartTag which possesses a code, instead of written personal information, that may be used to report your luggage online. Once someone spots your luggage and submits the code online, you will be sent a text message, an email, or a phone call that will tell you your luggage has been found.

Besides acting as a link to your luggage, its website also allows you to let the airport staff know about your itinerary so that they will be able to send your luggage to the next site in your itinerary. All you need to do is just enter your itinerary into the site. Visit www.supersmarttag.com for more information.
