If you travel often enough it might seem like misplacing your baggage will be inevitable at some point but a tag will at least assist everyone in getting it returned to you. However there are some extra precautions you can take in order to keep your luggage and its contents that little bit safer.

- Lock your case
- Place your itinerary in one of the bags pockets
- Remember to remove your old tags
- Try to avoid using connecting flights
- Take your valuables onboard with you as a carry on
- Ensure you check in on time
- Take photographs of your luggage and their contents
- Check the airports own tag to ensure all the details are correct
- Use a tracking app to check the status of your luggage
- As soon as you believe your luggage is lost, notify the airline immediately
Following these steps should help to reduce the chances of you ever losing a piece of luggage and if you ever do you have a very high chance, around 97% of having it returned within 2 days should you use tags. To help those employees dealing with your lost bags get them to you, you should provide the right information on your tag but also be careful not to reveal too much. Here are some do's and don'ts of what information to have on your tag.
- First and last name
- Cell Phone number where you can be reached while on vacation
- Email Address
- Photograph of yourself
- Travel Destination
- Contact information of destination
- Contact Information for return journey
- Alternative contacts for your destination and home
What you should not ever include is your address as this will let potential thieves know your address and that they have plenty of time because you will be away for a week or two. The tag on the inside of your bags shows a little more information as criminals are only going want to catch a glance of the outer tags for any addresses on show. Although you still don't want to have your address in their will be safe to put the destination address.
When it comes to which tag to choose you will find a huge variety of styles that come in many different materials and colors and you will probably want one that will compliment your existing baggage. Those with couples in mind have a smaller amount of choice but if there is a particular one you must have, you could of course buy 2 the same and you will end up with the same effect of having a matching set, albeit without being able to show off the His and Hers, Mr and Mrs logos that often come with those produced especially for a couple.
