3. Don’t Go Black
They say 70% of travelers have a boring black suitcase, which makes it hard to differentiate them coming off the carousel or lined up in a hotel lobby. If you’re in the market for a new bag, express yourself with a stand-out color or pattern. Nothing too flashy or designer brand name that implies you have valuables inside, but go for something that pops. At the very least, adorn your bag with bright ribbon, duct tape, stickers or distinctive tag so nobody mistakes yours for their own.
