The rates of lost luggage on airlines is lower than ever. But that doesn’t mean that the occasional bag still doesn’t go missing. The best thing to do is be proactive about it from the start.
There are a couple bag companies out there that sell smart bags. Smart bags like those from Raden or Bluesmart will allow you to track them through the airport. However, you can also just put a GPS tracker inside your normal luggage and track it that way.
It’s also a good idea to have an identification tag on every piece of luggage. Ideally, that should include your name as well as your final destination to avoid mix ups whenever possible.
