The airlines work very hard to ensure that your checked luggage arrives with you. However, mistakes happen. If you’re planning for a significant trip with your loved one, consider packing half of your belongings in your bag and the other half in your partner’s bag. Your loved one can do the same. Should one bag be “lost”, you will both have clothes at your destination. Using color coded Packing Cubes can make this process very easy!
Tip 46: Don’t rely on airport or hotel USB ports
Maybe it is just my luck, but the airport USBs never work. Even though they are now placed in very convenient spots around the seats at the gates, they are usually broken or don’t seem to be getting electricity. The best bet to avoid this problem in a hotel room, train station or airport is to carry the socket part so you can use good ole outlets rather than hoping you’ll find a working USB port.
Tip 14: Make your luggage stand out
It seems like every other piece of luggage at baggage claim looks the same. A friend has experience the horrifying mix up and you can only imagine it’s not fun. Use a colorful ribbon around the handle or a unique luggage tag, like this one, to help identify your bag and show your love for Lead.Travel.Pray.!
