Picture this: you're at the airport and your flight just landed. You're either starting your vacation or you're home and you're waiting for your bag at baggage claim. You see a bag come down onto the carousel and it looks almost identical to yours. How are you supposed to tell if it's your bag or not? If you thought to yourself: "check the luggage tag...duh!" then you're totally right! Almost anyone who has been in an airport knows that, right?
Having recognizable luggage tags is a must for travelers. Not only do luggage tags store your information in case your bag gets lost, but they also help your bag stand out from others. When searching for a new luggage tag for your suitcase, you'll want one that'll stay attached to your bag and you'll want to make sure it's durable and won't break from being tossed around by airline personnel that are handling your bags.
Add a little flair to your luggage with one of these cute tags:

Depending on how much you trust or don't trust your airline, it might be worth investing in a luggage tracking device. These devices work by locating your luggage in real time and sending notifications straight to your cell phone. For a little extra peace of mind and knowing that your luggage is near (or far - hopefully that's not the case), having a tracking device like the ones below could very well be a saving grace.

This luggage tracker fits in your checked luggage allowing you to track it from check-in to baggage claim. Once you arrive to your destination, you'll be sent an SMS text message or email with the location of your bag. Trackdot is compatiable with any type of cellular device and you can connect multiple cell phones.
LugLoc Luggage Tracker:
With the LugLoc tracker, you'll never have to worry about losing your luggage. Simply download the LugLoc smartphone app and keep track of your bag in real time.

26 million (yes, million) bags go missing from airports every year. How crazy is that? Don't let your bag get lost in the shuffle - grab yourself one of the luggage tags above or even one of the luggage tracking devices.
