A travel expert told us about a mistake that can ruin your vacation. He highlighted a simple life hack that will help you keep your luggage safe.

Losing your luggage is one of the most unfortunate things that can happen when traveling by plane. According to the statistics of the British company 1st Move International, 26 million bags were lost or misplaced on flights and at airports last year, The Sun reports.

Tips on how to properly pack your luggage before your flight

1. Remove stickers from previous flights

The fact is that the scanner at the airport can get confused and send your bags to another flight.

In addition, it will greatly facilitate the work of airport employees.

2. Avoid short layovers at the airport

During a long flight, you should have more time, so experts recommend not taking tickets for a flight where there will be little time to transfer your luggage.

A long layover gives airport staff more time to transport your luggage.

3. Choose the right suitcase

Buy luggage that will help keep your belongings safe. Such luggage has a special durable case, reliable straps and fittings. Opt for hard suitcases, as this increases the likelihood that your belongings will arrive safely.

4. Buy an AirTag or other GPS tracker

AirTag is a tracking device developed by Apple that helps you keep track of your keys and locate various items. You can place this device in your suitcase.

It will make your traveling very easy and will allow you to easily track your bag if it gets lost.

5. Take a photo and a sticker

In order not to lose your suitcase in the queue, it is better to take a photo before the flight. This photo can be used as a reference point if your suitcase gets lost.

Experts recommend sticking a luggage sticker on your suitcase. When you file a theft report, it will also make it easier to describe your suitcase: its color, size, and manufacturer.

Remember that every detail helps in the search. But never write your home address on the suitcase to avoid helping thieves.
