How-To: Find Lost Luggage

Hopefully, you've learned to pack by now. But once you've rolled up your socks perfectly and handed your suitcase off to an airport employee, you don't have much control over where it goes. Sometimes luggage disappears, and when that happens, Is This Your Luggage is there to save the day. The mysterious person behind this website collects lost luggage, photographs it, and then tries to find its owners.

Where does the luggage come from, you ask? Well, apparently, after a bag sits at an airport for a certain amount of time unclaimed, and its owner can't be identified, the airline will auction it off and send the profit to a charity. Then this odd, voyeuristic, web-savvy person, goes to these auctions and buys those suitcases in hopes of returning them to owners through the site. So, if you've lost luggage and the airline has had no luck in tracking it down, check out Is This Your Luggage.

I've had my baggage lost twice, but thankfully it's been recovered both times. Now I always make sure to pack a change of clothes and the essentials in my carry-on.

That's super nice of that person! If your bag has a tag on it, is it even possible for it to be forever lost?
