Register Your Bag Online
By utilizing a free system like Okoban, you can double-up on security and the airline's ability to contact you. John Vermilye, CEO of Travel Sentry, explains that these systems work in tandem with the already existing tracking systems. "Okoban speeds up and automates the part of the process that relies on incomplete information (how to contact you) and the goodwill and ability of the baggage service agents to make those calls." These tags come free with a lot of modern luggage, but can also be purchased online.
