Default Tip about luggage

One of the best tips I got brom these boaards was to use those bright straps around our luggage. It not only holds it closed, but it provides easy identification. We also tied bright yellow ribbons on each handle. The strap and ribbon were a big help on the airlines baggage turntables. They were an even bigger help when it came to claiming our luggage when we disembarked. Luggage was stacked in many long rows. Of course ours was at the far end of three of these rows. However, as soon as we got close enough to see to the end, we recognized our luggage instantly.

Hi Linda,
Yep, used mine for the 2nd time and I loved it. Had heard that they sometimes will get taken off, but ours did make it just fine. Glad you had good luck with them as well!

I put big gold lame ribbon bows on ours (from Christmas) works great, but they're the most Liberace-looking ID'ed bags around!

the bigger, brighter, gaudier the better to identify your baggage.
