You landed at the airport, but did not see your suitcase. Lost luggage is always a nightmare for tourists. The following 10 tips will help you prevent this unfortunate incident.
We understand the temptation to spend money on beautiful suitcases, good quality labels. However, keep in mind that this suitcase will attract unattractive attention.
By choosing a simple briefcase, you can significantly reduce the risk of baggage being stolen.
You should also ensure your luggage is not misplaced.
Here are some ways to help you differentiate your luggage: label and write you name on it with light ink, buy a luggage strap or make yourself with bright colored ribbons and tape.
You should take precaution to forget the luggage in the car. Before taking a nap, ask the driver how long you will arrive and set up the bell in your phone to remind you to check your luggage before getting off. Name the alarm bell with the word "Luggage" in capital letters.
You see people are picking up their luggage in the conveyor belt but yours isn’t found. The airline has lost your luggage. You are tired when going to the lost and found and prepare to make a complaint. But keep in mind that people on the counter are just as tired as you. Before doing that, take a deep breath, be positive and friendly. A friendly smile and a polite thank you will make the staff to help you more enthusiastic.
A prominent lock also attracts attention as beautiful suitcases. It can make others guess that there is something inside that you need such protection. They will destroy the locks and rummage looking for your valuables. We recommend you camouflage your luggage to look as cheap as possible to reduce others’ attention.
After checking the luggage, ask the attendant to quickly compare the number printed on the label with the flight number and destination. This will help you avoid a lot of risk later. To make sure you do not lose your stickers, stick it on your passport. This is the key to the airline to find your suitcase when lost. Be sure to check the sticker on the luggage before taking it out of the conveyor belt. This will help to avoid confusion and the hassle of returning baggage to the airport.
If you travel with friends or family, a smart way to minimize the risk of getting lost luggage is by arranging the belongings into the luggage of those who come along. By the way, in case of missing a suitcase, you still have clothes in other suitcases. Remember to divide properly: 5 shirts will become meaningless without the pants.
Ask for your airline number when you find your luggage is lost. Finding and returning your luggage is their obligation. When you have a phone number, you will save more time in getting it back.
Never leave important documents such as money or credit cards in your luggage. Instead, put them in your carry-on bag or purse. You may lack clothing or personal belongings, but it will be a disaster when you are in a new place without money, or worse, without a passport.
There is no guarantee that your luggage will not be lost even if you have taken all the steps above. But if this nightmare happens, stay calm because technology will help you find it again. With RM80 device, you can check your luggage with the TRACE ME program. This is a location-based program that relies on interoperability with the airline's baggage system. ReboundTag also takes a further step when developing chip-mounted luggage for easy tracking. Or Bg2Go has launched a tracking satellite attached to the suitcase and connects them to the smartphone of the passenger.
