Default E-Ticket Question

We received e-tickets. What do you do about luggage tags? Always before we got actual tags (booked through local travel agent).

Do we need to find a laminator, or what do you suggest? Does it matter if they are not in color, or do we need to print on a color printer? Thanks!

We use colorful luggage tags, but always put our information inside of the suitcase too, in case the tags are ripped off. When you check in at the airport, they will be the appropriate tags on your luggage and you'll be on your way. Don't put the cruise tags on until you are on your way to the port.

Hope this is the information you were looking for.........????????

Are you referring to airline E-Tickets? If so you can handle these quite similar to a regular ticket. You can check in at the airline's check in area. Give them your name and picture ID. They will have your reservation in their system. You can check you luggage for the flight at this time.

You should have standard luggage tags with your name address and phone number on the outside of your suitcase. You should also have this information inside your luggage in the event the outside tag is lost or removed. They do not have to be laminated but the sturdier they are the longer they will last and withstand the rigors of baggage handling. Colored tags can make your luggage easier to find in a crowd but not required. Do avoid having your luggage tags too large or they will pull off in conveyor belts or during handling. The bigger they are the easier they are to catch on something.

If you are referring to a cruise E-Ticket then you should contact your travel agent and request that your cruise luggage tags be sent to you so you can put them on your bags before you arrive at the ship.

Take care,

Thanks for the info Mike.
What I meant to reference were the luggage "labels" that have name of cruise ship, room number, etc. They are normally adhesive backed. What we got by e-ticket was just a copy we print.

I would prefer to have the ones we had on previous cruises that were mailed to us (in color, with peel off backing).

I have requested these from travel agent, but have not yet had response. Any suggestions?

When you arrive at the pier, the porters will have the "regular" luggage tags available. Just get some, and place them on your luggage before handing the bags over to the porter.
It'll only delay you about 30 seconds <G>

Thanks for the info, Kuki. They wanted $15.00 to mail them to us! I guess I should have thought about it sooner; this is our first time for e-tickets.

Before handing the bags over to the porter - make sure YOU write your CABIN number on the tags. Our friends let the porter do it - and they did not get their laggade until 9 pm - because noone could figure out was that a "5" or a "3"...
