Travel: Place I.D. Tags Inside Your Bags When Traveling by Air or Bus

Dick Moss, Editor

When traveling by plane, bus or train, most people place their identification tag on the handle of their luggage.

However, the third most common luggage-related problem experienced during air travel involves luggage handles being ripped off by automated conveyors. Of course, if your identification tag is on the handle, the bag becomes unidentifiable.

As a result, it's a good idea to place some identification inside your bag, as well as on the handle. If there's no identification on the outside of a bag, airline officials will often look inside it for alternate ID.
