#Travel140: Make your bags easy to find.

#Travel140 Travel Tips

Make your luggage unique so it’s easier to find at baggage claim. If a bag does get lost, it’s also easier to describe.

There are several ways to make your luggage stand out. You can start with a bat that’s out of the ordinary. Solid bags in red, black and blue are pretty common. Choose something with a pattern that stands out, but is also easy to describe. Hello Kitty is easier to understand – and recognize – than “pink and red paisley.”

If you already have a bag that tends to blend in, try adding a handle pad, bag strap, or colorful tape to make it stand out on the carousel. Don’t forget to take a quick picture of your bags, too, just in case you need Baggage Claim to help find them.
