Here are 3 ridiculously simple tips for not losing your luggage.

Take a Photo of Checked Luggage:  The first thing that needs to be done when luggage is lost is to describe that luggage. The best way to do that is to take a photo of it and pass it on when asked for the description.

Put a Little Bell on Your Luggage:  Sounds silly, doesn't it.  The fact is, a good percentage of "lost luggage" is where someone waiting at the carousel mistakenly picks up the wrong piece of luggage.  I mean, take a look - all those bags look alike.  I knew a traveler who used to attach a little bell on her luggage.  When it came out to the carousel, she could hear it.  Also, if another passenger mistakenly picked it up, they would do a double-take to see what that noise was - then recognize they had the wrong bag.

Don't Check Luggage:  To put it simply, it is hard to lose a checked bag if it isn't checked at all.
