Claiming baggage after your flight is one of the most stressful parts of traveling, but it doesn’t have to be. We’re bringing you a few useful tips and tricks that will help you have a smooth and stress-free experience at the baggage carousel.

Make Your Bag Noticeable

In a sea of regular black suitcases, it can be hard to notice your own, so put an extra effort into making sure it stands out. Consider buying unique luggage in distinct colors or try to personalize it with stickers, tags, ribbons, or luggage straps.

Label Your Baggage

Even if your baggage is impossible to miss, it’s still a good idea to label it properly. Make sure to tag your bag with your name and contact information in case it ends up lost or stolen.

Come Prepared

Once you reach the baggage carousel, make sure you’re in the right place and stay patient because it’s just a matter of minutes before your bag comes out. Keep an eye on the carousel as soon as it starts rotating and you’ll notice your bag in no time.

Essentials in Your Carry-On

Lost and delayed luggage is one of the most annoying parts of travel, and it happens to be best of us. Avoid going into panic mode by packing all the essentials in your carry-on, such as your meds, electronics, and a change of clothes.
