19 Luggage Tags Fancier Than the Paper One You Got for Free at the Airport
Baggage claim carousels can give people (like me) anxiety. Will you be able to spot your bag in this flowing river of dark suitcases or will you end up leaving with someone else’s belongings by mistake? Or worse, will someone leave with yours?
Of course, as with most things in life, the solution to this problem is actually very easy and obvious: a luggage tag.
Think about how painless waiting for your bag to show up would be if it had a brightly colored tag attached to it that you could spot right away. And let’s be honest — it’s also another opportunity to stylishly accessorize your travel items, and we always take those to heart.
A personalized luggage tag is always a good idea. Your contact details can be printed directly on it, so if you happen to lose your bag, it won’t be difficult to find you. We’re also fans of pairing your luggage tag with a matching passport cover for the complete look.
From custom luggage tags to tags that can track your luggage, we rounded up the coolest picks to help you spot your suitcase right away and get on with your trip.
