Ways to Keep Your Luggage Safe When Traveling

If you plan to take holidays to anywhere around the world there is always the chance that something could happen to your luggage. There generally is plenty of security while your luggage is in the airline terminal but it's up to you after that to take care of your luggage. There are a few ways that you can ensure the safety of your luggage.

When you are in the airport for even more security if at all possible don't check in your bags. But if you find out that there is no way to do this the most important thing that you can do is to remove anything you consider of value with you in your carry on bag. This will protect your valuables in case the suitcase is lost during travel.

It is a good idea to buy luggage that has some sort of unusual pattern or color from the ordinary luggage you would see. If your luggage is unusual looking the likelihood of them getting mixed up or taken by someone else by accident will be cut down immensely.

Instead of using the normal luggage tags for your name and address. Instead you should take a permanent marker like a Sharpie and write your name and address in large letters on your suitcases. If your suitcase is of a dark nature you should use a silver or gold one so it can be more visible.

Combination locks are also a nice feature you can purchase. Make sure that they come with a cord that is thick. This cord can then be looped around something that is immoveable like a bed frame or other piece of heavy furniture.

Always make sure that you are suspicious of anyone who tries to offer you any kind of help or even taxi service if they can't give you some sort of official identification to prove who they are. This is a very popular way for thieves to get a way to rip you off.

When you check into the hotel you might be staying at it is a very good idea not to let the bell hop take your bags up a head of you to your room. If you want the help from someone then make sure that they give you this help when you are all walking up to the room together.

You should make an inventory and take photos of all of your items that you have in your luggage. Even though the chances that you may not get all of your lost and stolen items back it is better to do this than not be prepared. If you take care of reporting a loss or theft then you will definitely be helping yourself and the authorities if you have this information to give them.
