A WOMAN has revealed why she always films her luggage before going on holiday.

Passengers frequently come up with new methods to keep their belongings safe when they travel abroad.

Robin, who is known as robinontheroad on TikTok, recently recorded a video of her luggage before she boarded a flight.

A caption over the video read: "I always record my luggage when I'm in line to check-in at the airport, just in case, for evidence. It's saved me twice."

The video showed Robin spinning her green carry-on suitcase and her black rucksack, so she could get a good shot of them for the camera.

In the comments, she explained that she films her luggage in case her suitcase is lost or damaged during a flight.

As well as filming pieces of luggage, there are steps you can take to prevent your luggage from being lost.

There are also multiple devices available that may help you track your luggage, like Airtags.

Being proactive by preparing your luggage with a tag or tracker would help in the event that it is lost. 

You will be able to use your phone to find out exactly where it is.

Travel experts at Air Advisor have revealed the four steps you should take if you lose your bags and also provided advice on how you can prevent your luggage from going astray.
