Genius travel hacks
Here are some basic but life-saving travel hacks to keep in mind when you’re packing.
Double up on bag tags
Nothing stands to ruin a trip quite like lost luggage. Although a luggage tag can help identify your suitcase, what happens if it falls off in transit? (We’ve all seen those viral videos of how luggage handlers treat our bags on the tarmac!) When you’re packing for a flight, pop a second luggage tag inside your bag. That way, even if the tag on the outside falls off, you’ll have the proof you need to reclaim your luggage.
Take this travel hack a step further by investing in a Bluetooth luggage tracker that allows you to keep tabs on your bag, wherever it may roam.
Never lose another earring
If earrings float freely in your luggage (or even your toiletry bag), they’ll inevitably get separated. Instead, grab a spare button and stick the posts of both earrings through two of the holes, closing them up with the backing around the other side.
