Tips for safeguarding luggage

Damaged or lost luggage is an all-too-common occurrence for airline passengers. Share these travel tips with customers1:

  • Use a TSA-approved lock. Ten percent of checked bags are chosen for additional inspecting by the Transportation Security Administration. TSA-approved locks allow screeners to safely open them with a master key.
  • Invest in protective covers. A plastic or fabric cover can prevent external damage.
  • Consider luggage tracking. Many airlines offer apps that allow travelers to track a bag’s location.
  • Keep a record. Photograph bags and their contents. This will make the process easier should a claim need to be filed.

I hope your customers find this information to be helpful.
