How To Protect Your Luggage

When traveling, your luggage is your lifeline. Not only does it contain your clothes and other personal items, but the bag itself may have cost you a pretty penny. At the rate of lost and mishandled luggage by airlines in the United States, it would be wise to take a few precautions to protect your bag before travel. Here are a few ways to protect not only your possessions, but also your vacation from being ruined.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
