Each Friday, we feature a reader-submitted tip as our Travel Tip of the Day. This week’s tip comes from reader Mark from Seattle, who says:
“I am always amazed by those travelers who put their home address on their luggage tags when starting out on their travels. If their luggage is lost at the start, it’s going to be delivered to their home address. So much for a three-week vacation out of the country without clothes, etc.
“The best tip I can offer is to suggest each traveler print out their destination addresses they’re going to whenever someone else is handling their luggage. A few years ago, our luggage didn’t show up in baggage claim in Rome. Fortunately, I had the hotel address in Rome on our luggage tag (I use tags with windows that allow me to change addresses) so our luggage was delivered later that night.”
If you lose your checked luggage, you’ll typically have the chance to clarify where you want it sent when you report it missing to the airline. Still, this is good advice. Thanks, Mark!
