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.

Essential Checks Before a Long Car Journey
We all know we’re supposed to check our car before we set off on a long journey. But what does that actually involve?
These checks can be done by anyone at any time and will not need any special equipment or prior knowledge.
1.Check Your Tires
There are three elements that you should check:
2. Check Your Oil Levels
To check the oil level you will need to remove the dipstick. You should be able to easily locate this as it will be either a bright yellow or orange pull ring.
Once you’ve pulled out the dipstick you should then wipe it clean so that no residual oil remains and could provide a false level.
3. Check The Engine Coolant
It is especially important that this check and top up is done when the engine is cold, and we recommend leaving the vehicle for at least eight hours since it was last used before opening the coolant tank. This is because the coolant can get incredibly hot and with the pressure in the tank opening it when not cool can cause serious injury.
4.Make Sure Your Lights are Working
To check your headlights and high beams face the reflective surface, and turn them on. You can also check your cabin light, and your front fog light, if your vehicle has one.
5.Test Your Brakes
You should also check your brakes are working correctly before setting off.
There are two checks to complete. The first is to press down on the brake pedal before starting the engine, it should feel spongy and not slack at all. Then turn the engine on and conduct the second test. In a safe place you should apply the brakes firmly when driving. The vehicle should stop promptly and not pull to one side.
6.Check your battery
Before you head off you should check that your essential electric systems (battery) are working. A problematic battery will reduce the ability to supply electricity to a number of components, such as lights, wipers, door locks, air conditioners, audio systems and others. The characteristics are easy, these components do not work stably if the battery has a problem.
If you’re setting off on a long trip, then you should fill up at the fuel station.
Drivers should refuel their vehicle when they have anywhere between a quarter of a tank or half of a tank left for maximum efficiency.The less fuel in your tank, the greater the risk of running out completely in a bad spot.
