I find this a problem after taking a wrong case once.

After that I always put a distinctive ribbon, and other things on my case.

I have various stickers I have collected along with an unusual luggage tag and I have not made this mistake since doing all this.

There are always so many cases that look alike nowadays unless you get really bright ones, which I do not particularly like and which are also becomming more popular anyway.

I used to put a ribbon on it but now I just check the sticker they put on it because that usually has your name on it

I put illegal drugs in my bag and then I wait for the beagle to go and sit near it.


I tie some colourful ribbons to the handle.
My old case had lots of stickers from my prolific travel then, however have a newish one and just use the usual tag, the ribbon is a good tip,....oh to travel again hmmmmm

We have bright blue baggage, which has been helpful. But we also use obnoxious luggage tags, which also helps ours stick out!
I make my own ribbon-tie.

Out of fabric, no one else can have, like retro old .
Cutting long strip's and sewing together, like a ribbon....say 20 cm's long by 4 cm's wide.
Clever clogs!

You have to be very smart, because stuff happens...I know, use to work at a Airport!

I have the usual luggage label but I also put on a red platic loop. I dont have stickers on my luggage and always remove any stickers from previous trips.
Being a calligrapher,I always have made a huge bright fluoro tag with gorgeous writing on it!!
I usually tie ribbons on my luggage. My luggage has traveled to more countries than I have.

Hello Gia.....did it get lost? Decide to strike out on its' own? Thought another traveller's itinerary looked better than yours? ...........
Do tell, please!

It got lost. I was travelling via connecting flights. It was good that I had packed some essentials in my hand luggage.

A friend's luggage got left behind in America in Dec. 2013 when she came back here for a few weeks that summer. She had to go from Minneapolis to LA for the main flight. Somehow either on a stopover or other event, her luggage ended up in Dallas, which she only discovered upon landing in Melb. I can only assume that hers had to be taken off, to allow a Dallas passenger's case to be removed, and hers wasn't then put back on. It arrived about a week later.

Long story short...............

Flying from Kununurra to East Coast.
Flight delayed ex there due had to land at Newman to get extra fuel, due headwinds.
Missed flight ex Darwin.
Put on flight to Adelaide, then Sydney.
Had spent from 7am to 8pm flying.
Got to home port. Only then did I think of my luggage, which I last saw at Kununurra! Oh dear!
Went to Baggage Dept, & guess what was sitting there, all forlorn? My bag!
Happy ending to a VERY long day!

My suitcase is pink with a floral front, I've never seen another one like it! No trouble identifying that baby....
Whenever we can, we travel only with hand luggage, which removes the problem. Or we drive then also no problem!
tie a ribbon onto the handle.
Lately i have been travelling with a bright pink suitcase, have been lucky cos i can spoke my suitcase straight away once it is on the carousel.
Colourful luggage straps & label.
My luggage is a complete set, which my Mother & an Aunt bought me when I started work. Am still using it all, exceptionally well made. Designed for use on TAA aircrafts! It is a nondescript colour, & have only seen same once in 45 years' of travelling!
My suitcase is a large red one, got from my aunt, and it's amazing upon arriving at the airport, how many people suddenly seem to have the same one as you, that they've had for years.
I tied a Peter Alexander pink dog tag to mine for my last trip, so first looked for the red case, then the pink tag at the baggage carousel.
I write something nonsensical in big letters on my case and tie something coloured to the handle.

I have a big tartan ribbon (being Scottish) wrapped around the handle, and a Victoria's Secret luggage tag. As I travel fairly frequently to US I also use TSA locks.
I've a pink leather luggage tag with crystals on it and my girlfriend and I are travelling overseas in September so have bought a pink luggage strap to go around the case to make them easily identifiable on the luggage carousel.
I put a different coloured strap around it to protect the bag but it doesn't seem to work. Baggage handlers are so rough
I tend to put luggage tags on the cases or bags, and inside my bag/luggage.
I gave a bee case, with a white scratch mark on 1 corner, so I recognise it from that. My husband has a grey/black case, & he's tired thin yellow ribbons on the handles. I did buy a luggage label with an
Eiffel Tower picture on it, but I didn't attach it to the case, incase someone took it for them selves, & now I can't find it! (It's in our house somewhere!)
