Last week, we wrote about why frequent fliers use Apple AirTags when they travel. These handy little tracking devices are perfect for slipping into your luggage so you always know exactly where your suitcase is … even when the airline doesn’t.

You’re probably tired of hearing that summer travel is going to be a crazy one but … it is and now that summer is here, it’s best to be prepared in every way possible to help minimize the disruption to your plans. (Here’s our Summer 2022 Travel Survival Guide to give you a leg up.)

Because of a confluence of events (an extreme increase in demand for travel, labor shortages and even weather in some cases), airlines are struggling to maintain smooth operations. That means that things that can go wrong will and one of those things is lots of lost luggage, something we’re seeing at airports around the world.

An Apple AirTag will allow you to track your checked luggage, which can give you a lot of peace of mind. And these protective AirTag keychain holders are a great accessory so you can easily secure them to something (they can also be used on a dog collar, on your keychain if you’re always losing your keys or anything else you have a habit of losing) and they’re waterproof, as well. You can check out more options here.

If you are on an Android phone and use Samsung SmartTags, then check out these covers and keychains here.

Use Apple AirTags to keep track of your luggage, backpack, purse or tote bag on your travels and it’s one less thing to be stressed out about this summer. Buy them here on Amazon.

    We travelled to the Bahamas in late May from Chicago on UAL. Just prior to boarding, an announcement was made advising passengers that if they had air tags in their carry-on bags, the batteries would have to be removed. We obliged but wondered about the devices we had in our checked bags. Does this pose a problem for the aircraft?

      Are you sure they said AirTags? I’ve never heard of this before

    You aren’t supposed to check a Lithium Battery. Which an Apple Air Tag has.

      These are fine

    Hi Johnny,
    I purchased about 6 Apple Airtags for my trip to Europe. I attached them to my checked luggage, my husband’s carry-on luggage, to each of our “personnel items” and onto my mini purse before boarding our flight. I was thrilled to immediately see that my checked luggage had arrived at our destination because I had located the Airtag on my iPhone 13! – I have one word of caution regarding the Airtags. Be sure that the Airtag holder does not have an easily removable clip. The one that was on my mini purse probably fell off when I was walking around in Florence, Italy. I did not lose my mini purse, but the Airtag is now at someone’s home near Lucca, Italy. Since I have returned to the USA, I have little chance of getting it back. The Airtags cost around $30 each, so that was a disappointing loss!
