Johnny Ray gives tips on recovering lost luggage

Johnny Ray’s Thoughts on Recovering Your Lost Luggage

I know I’m not the first one to have luggage head in the opposite direction of where I need it to be delivered. The frustration of not ever knowing if it will be returned can really ruin your day. With all of the piece of luggage out there that disappear, the chances of having it recovered depend sometimes on one fact—the ability to identify it.

Having the outside tag can be helpful, but it also gives away your location to anyone glancing at it. This cannot be too good of a thing. The last thing you want to do is advertise is that you are away from home. However, it is always good to be able to tell the lost and found guy a way identify your luggage from all of the rest out there. This is a time for you to be creative and let your imagination come into play.

The company will usually open the luggage to see if there is a way to identify its owner. This is the best place to leave your card and information on how to locate you. If you are making a trip, leave information on how to contact you.

Another request often made is to identify what is located inside. This is often when we all go brain dead. It helps to have a mental note of what you were carrying with you. On the items inside, it can also be great to have names attached to them. This might appear to be a problem you think you will never face, but the old saying an ounce of prevention goes a long way is definitely true.

And last is the issue of insurance. If you have extended insurance you have the added feeling that they have more at stake to find your luggage. And this may be a small price to pay to receive your luggage back.
