Lost luggage when travelling abroad (or even on domestic flights) is a huge problem – waiting at the airport to be told that they’ve flown your bags to another airport is really going to get your vacation off to a bad start. Not only do you have the frustration of being in a destination without your personal belongings but there’s always the chance your lost luggage becomes permanently lost. Losing luggage can be a thing of the past if you read my list of 7 Ways to Minimize the Risk of Lost Luggage.
