Common Sense Luggage Safety On Vacation

Most people have heard travel vacation horror stories about lost, stolen or damaged luggage. But in this day in age, there are a lot more restrictions about what you can and cannot pack or bring aboard, in addition to more ways to be ripped off by con artists and petty thieves. Avoid these travel stresses by following some common sense luggage safety tips.

Have a Back Up Plan

Assume that everyone at the airport is unable to help you. This means you must help yourself. First, purchase travel insurance that covers lost or stolen luggage. Make sure your luggage tags are secure and within plain sight. Bring your own luggage tags from home as a backup. Pack a few clothing items in your carry-ons, just in case. Clothing is the hardest to replace when traveling, and if you have an extra set, you will save yourself some time and money should the worst befall.

Pack SmartFor Travel

Your entire luggage will be searched, and unfortunately, not all luggage screeners are trust worthy. This means do not pack any clothing items, shoes or handbags that are obviously worth over $100. If you are talking about a suit or gown, chances are no one will be able to steal that, but if you are talking about an $800 Fendi purse and matching sunglasses, you are better off putting those in your carry on. If you are bringing jewelry or electronics on your luxury world cruise do not pack them in your checked luggage, as these items are also easily taken.

But the best way to avoid run-ins with the TSA is to be aware of procedures and regulations. Make it easier on you and them! For more help with your luxury travel vacations check out
