Before you go on vacation, take two photos on the camera you're bringing with you -- one of your luggage (in case it gets lost) and one of your name/address/e-mail (in case you lose your camera)."

I thought this was pretty good.

anyone got any others?

Be sure to keep an eye on your belongings so that it won't be lost. Guess you need to at least research about the place you wanna go to so that you will be having an idea about the weather condition, etc.. It is also smart to buy a map of the place (esp during international travel) incase you will be lost.

I promise to love you in good times and in bad, with all I have to give and all that I am, in the only way I know how -- completely and forever......

If you're travelling with kids, pack an extra mini carry on case and fill it up with snacks, goodies and toys to keep them entertained. Also, give them a piece of gum before take off to relieve pressure from their ears.

Your luggage if lost may find you, but your camera? I think that one is a lost cause, most would just keep it.

Attach some sort of unique identifier to your suitcase so you can quickly differentiate it from all the other look a likes on the airport carousel. Also, write your name and address and contact phone number and put it inside your suitcase in case the external address tag gets torn off. If it gets 'lost' you are more likely to get it back if it has the address inside.


“...Isn't it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive--it's such an interesting world. It wouldn't be half so interesting if we knew all about everything, would it? There'd be no scope for imagination then, would there?”

Carry a change of underwear (and makeup and contact solution and meds if you use) with you on board.... just in case they lose your luggage. :angry: When they do lose your luggage, make sure you get them to give you an emergency supply kit (toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, etc) and find out how they are going to compensate you for your loss. Because, trust me.... you'll need to go shopping to replace what they've lost.

Try to get luggage in a color that's something other than black. Nearly everyone has black carry-ons and checked baggage today, so it's become somewhat difficult to tell who's bag is whose at times. If you're holding onto your luggage at all times, it's not a problem, but with the proliferation of small regional jets, gate checking has become far more common, so carry-ons that were once easily stowed overhead or under the seat now have to be checked at the gate. If everyone's luggage looks the same, it's possible someone may accidentally mistake their bag for yours (or yours for theirs). It gets worse when picking up checked baggage after a long flight.

If you absolutely must have a black suitcase, then try to get a colored name tag to go on it. I use a blindly bright lime green tag on each of my bags and while that may be an ugly color, that also makes it real easy for me to find my luggage quick. :P
