Unfortunately some travelers will experience having their baggage lost or delayed.

Now is a great time to prepare yourself by downloading a lost baggage summary spreadsheet.

It is in Excel format and you can customise it with the actual items you intend to pack.

Another advantage to you, is that the spreadsheet will summarise the total value of your suitcase contents.

This is very important, because not many people realise that following international conventions, the Airlines only insure checked baggage at the rate of USD $20 per kilo.

If your baggage value is greater than this (and most will be), you should take out your own travel insurance to cover yourself for potential loss.
