Another important aspect is to remove identification tags from previous trips, as this could lead to confusion and your luggage will end up in a completely different destination than yours.

If you can carry hand luggage instead of a bag in the hold, take advantage of it, you will take it with you and thus avoid worries during the trip. And if you decide to check in, take valuables with you in your hand luggage, so if the checked item is lost, you avoid disappointment. It is also important to arrive on time at the airport. You don’t need to get up too early, but keep in mind that if you check in at the last minute, your suitcase is more likely not to show up at your destination.

As it is normal for suitcases to be repeated or very similar, try to put an element that identifies them on the others and take the opportunity to put your name and telephone number or email address so that they can contact you in case they find it or someone took the wrong one.

Although the likelihood that your suitcase will end up lost somewhere in the airport is practically nil, there is always this small possibility that it could disturb us when you arrive at your destination. Knowing how to act or take certain precautions is essential for your luggage to leave the airport with you.
