Travel(Courtesy of AP) Some tips for reducing your chances of losing your luggage: 1. Before your bag disappears behind the ticket counter, make sure the airline’s tag has your name, flight number and final destination. 2. Place a copy of your flight itinerary inside your suitcase with your cellphone number and the name of your hotel in case the tag is ripped off. 3. If you can’t live without it, don’t check it. It might take days to return a lost bag. Don’t pack medication or outfits for tomorrow’s meeting or wedding. Never check valuables such as jewelry or electronics.

1. Before your bag disappears behind the ticket counter, make sure the airline’s tag has your name, flight number and final destination.

2. Place a copy of your flight itinerary inside your suitcase with your cellphone number and the name of your hotel in case the tag is ripped off.

3. If you can’t live without it, don’t check it. It might take days to return a lost bag. Don’t pack medication or outfits for tomorrow’s meeting or wedding. Never check valuables such as jewelry or electronics.

4. Make your bag stand out. A bright color or print or something tied to the handle prevents somebody from accidentally taking it at baggage claim.

5. Prepare your carry-on bag as if it will be checked. You might not have planned to check your bag, but given today’s crowded overhead bins many fliers don’t have a choice.

6. If your bag doesn’t arrive, file a claim before you leave the airport. If on a cruise, give your itinerary to the airline so your luggage can be forwarded to the next port.
