Identify your case quickly and easily with tags or identification straps. Write your name and address on a tag so that any lost luggage can be reunited quickly.

Weigh your luggage before you leave with appropriate luggage scales. Some lightweight scales are small enough to take with you for the return journey. Airlines will only take cabin luggage and checked in luggage up to a certain weight. For an approximate weight guide use our airline checker, but always double check with your airline as restrictions can change.
