Our top 7 tips will help you make your suitcase stand out so that you won’t get lost in the crowd. You’ll be welcomed as a true long-distance traveler.
1. Choose colourful luggage.
By far the two most popular luggage colours are black and red, avoid these colours and you can reduce the number of other suitcases on the carousel that look like yours. Patterns, prints and pictures can be found on the wide variety of luggage available these days. You can even buy personalized luggage with your own picture transferred onto it ( Ugo Ba).
Tie your luggage with a strap or bungee cord for quick and easy travel.
Luggage straps are strips of tough fabric that can be attached and removed without having to unzip the front or back of your bag. Luggage straps add extra security to your suitcase if damage occurs, but you typically only need one set of straps per bag. They also come in different colors so it’s easier to identify your luggage against other people’s bags at the airport.
To tie a ribbon around the handle, first place it in one hand and hold the scissors against the handle with your other.

Use an old scarf or bandanna, either as a teaching tool or to cover your dog’s eyes in case he is still mouthing at the scruff time. Make sure you and your pup both have enough of it, or you might run into a problem.
You may have an old scarf or bandanna that’s had its life stretched through wear and tear, but it can be reused as a handle on your suitcase/bag. You can either use the whole thing, or cut it down to size, and then tie it around the handle of your carry-on bag when you’re not using it.
