    I really hate watching out for the luggage hoping no one else has an identical case LOL

    How do you make sure yours stands out?

    I have a neon lime green handle wrap on one of our cases. Another case is a hideously ugly silver rolling garment bag, so it announces itself. I've used a yellow (huge) Mickey tag in the past. Anything that will stay attached, not catch on anything, and is extremely bright is what I use. Handlers hate the ribbons and other things that fray and catch, so I don't use anything like that.

    So you go more for addons than caring about the actual base colour of the bag? (there's a briggs riley case I quite like but can only get in black :/ but I guess if I add enough things to it)

    Well, I have a big purple floral case that stands out. ;)
    Pete has plain grey case so we have a bright strap for it.

    Thanks, Diane. I forgot about the rainbow strap that I also use. Keith, we go with the features and quality of the bag. If the color is standout, that's a bonus. Yes, we use add ons to make it stand out, otherwise. :yes:

    We have bright address tags ( we don't put our address on them, just our name)

    I use wide rainbow ribbon, but that's all frayed so maybe I need to think of something else instead of ribbon.

    I have lots of nail polish, and I know you do too Keef ;) and I sit and customise our cases by painting on flowers or animal paw prints right across the case on both sides.

    The thing that'll make your luggage stand out the most has got to be the colour of the luggage itself. Unfortunately, that almost always means it'll look tired before it's time due to the light colour.

    I used to used large brightly coloured tags but I've had mixed luck with them. When they stay on, they work brilliantly, otherwise, you end up picking them up off the conveyor (if the handlers are nice enough to put them there after they've separated from your bag).

    The method I've had most success with is a distinctive luggage strap. A locking one will usually stay on through the rigours of the baggage network and they're easily spotted nomatter which way your bag is thrown onto the conveyor belt.

    There is a lady who makes Disney ribbon (various designs and colours). We bought some a few years ago with our names printed on the ribbon. Even with our black suitcases we could see that they were our cases as they came off the carousel.

    Mags, thank you so much.

    You can send a PM by going to conversations.

    I have purple floral luggage. Dave has black with blue swirls....they sound horrendous but are ok. They are both lightweight too which is a bonus
