Has anyone else ever had their luggage taken by accident off the luggage belt?!
I was studying abroad in London, my first time abroad, and when I got off my flight I waited for hours for my luggage to come off the belt. But it never did.
I finally had to take the last suitcase that was left on the belt, after 3 hours of waiting around, and took the risk that the woman whose suitcase I had perhaps had my suitcase.
So I had to trek across London to the hotel the woman was staying at, and luckily she had my suitcase! She didnt even apologise for her mistake, I was so mad but had to stay polite!
Anyway I guess I learned the hard way that you have to personalise your luggage. Since then I travelled with a large duct tape "X" across the whole front of my suitcase.
However I have now heard about a new luggage personalisation service who can take any image or text you want and create a quality canvas label to distinguish your luggage. Or you can choose one of their images, I got my mum a cool coral image, perfect for her trip to Mexico in March!
Check it out, www.idclarity.com and see what you think.
I just hope that noone has to go through the stress that i went through that time in London. I didnt realise until then how valuable the contents of your suitcase actually are!
