How to Avoid Losing Your Bags When Travelling
Lost luggage happens, and it's a bummer—but it doesn't have to be the end of the world. We've put together a few tips on keeping your bags from traveling without you.
How to Avoid Losing Your Bags
The best way to avoid lost luggage is to carry it on—one carry-on-sized bag and one personal item, traditionally defined as a purse, tote, or anything small enough to fit under an airplane seat.Pack light and go carry-on only; that way, you'll never lose sight of your bag. Check airline rules before flying, as each carrier may have different bag dimensions.
Label Your Baggage Inside and Outside
All checked bags should have some label on the outside anda label on the inside - it can be beneficial to the bag's owner when it comes to identifying the bag.
A Picture Is Worth a Thousand Descriptions
Take a picture of your bag, preferably with a color tag, and keep it on your phone, email or another camera.
If your bag doesn't show up on the baggage carousel, look immediately for the airline's nearby baggage office or window and report it there at once. Give the window clerk your baggage stubs and wait for further instruction. Don't panic—your bag may just be delayed and coming in on another flight.
As soon as your luggage has been declared lost, you should call your travel insurance company to ask for advice on what to do next.

What is Insurance Policy?
Policy is an insurance term which means a contract or agreement between an insurance company and the insured. Insurance policy describes all the rights and obligations between the two parties. The insurance policy will be valid written evidence in the agreement made by the insurer and the insured.
With the existence of an insurance policy, both parties who enter into the insurance agreement will be bound and have their respective responsibilities as agreed from the start. Insurance policies are very important in the insurance service itself, because the policy will protect every right and obligation of the customer and the insurance company.
Does Car Insurance Cover Flood & Water Damage?
For those of you who don't know, car insurance also has an expansion of flood car insurance. It is important that you have this expansion of flood car insurance, especially during the rainy season and when you live at a high risk of flooding. Each policyholder can request an expansion of the insurance.
