Don’t Lose Your Luggage at the Airport


Some airlines no longer charge an arm and a leg for a checked bag, so you don’t have to lug that behemoth around the airport with you. But an age-old (air-travel age, that is) problem still exists…identifying your luggage on the baggage carousel! Here’s what to do…

Make your luggage easy to spot. Tie a standout ribbon (a loud plaid or colorful print) around the handle. You can also tie a brightly colored plastic bag (or one covered with prominent logos, like a Target bag). Or wrap glow-in-the-dark electrical tape around the handle. Not only will it be easy for you to identify your luggage, there’s less chance that someone will take off with it by mistake.
