One of the travel dilemmas you may encounter when going through the airport—and that is any airport—may be losing your own baggage during the process of checking. So what do you do when you lost your luggage in the Airport? In this article we’re going to list the precaution and trouble-shooting steps.
- Put label to your luggage both outside and inside. You can be creative in putting your own mark or name outside your travelling bag, but see to it that you leave detailed information of yourself inside your bag. Specifics such as full name, contact number, email and even a copy of your travel itinerary must be included in the list.
- Snap pictures of your own baggage in at least two different angles and save it online.
- Monitor your own bags in the carousel or politely ask someone to do it for you.
- Consider investing in Travel insurance since they come handy in times like this.
- The best first step must be: Don’t freak out even if you feel like it.
- If your luggage doesn’t show up in the carousel, report this immediately to the baggage window or office.
- Provide the baggage officers of the details and description of your baggage. Give them the photo snaps of your baggage you took beforehand.
- Fill up the claim forms that the baggage office will be supplying you and get your own copy of your duly filled up forms.
- In case that your baggage has been really lost, the airport will supply you with the closest possible replica of the lost luggage. However, the items stored within will be recompensed in accordance to the airport’s rules and policies.
