It is a traveler’s worst nightmare (aside from canceled flights): lost luggage. We’ve all heard horror stories about people losing their luggage, and there is even a website where you can buy items found in unclaimed luggage. To avoid seeing your personal items on the Unclaimed Baggage site, it’s best to secure your bag with a luggage tag. A rule of thumb with luggage tags is to not be too specific (like don’t put your full home address), but enough information so you can be reached if your luggage is ever indeed lost. Here are some of the best luggage tags to put on your suitcase for your next trip.
