Direct flights

Opting for a direct flight may be more expensive, but it helps you avoid layovers. Layovers add an extra stop for both you and your luggage, increasing the risk of it getting lost.

Itinerary in a suitcase

In case your luggage ends up in Paris while you are in Amsterdam with plans to travel around Europe, placing an itinerary inside your luggage can assist airline employees in returning it to the right place at the right time. According to experts, a paper copy of the route will expedite the process.

GPS tracker

Utilizing a GPS tracker, such as Airtag or Tile Mates, can help you keep tabs on your luggage, regardless of its location in the world. These trackers, placed inside your suitcase, enable you to locate your luggage using your smartphone or tablet while on the move.

Take photos of your luggage

Capturing a photo of your bag before you travel is a wise idea. This way, you can send it to airline staff, facilitating the identification process for them.
