    Not sure if these have made the rounds yet, but Bread found these and thought we'd share the info on them. They get good reviews and look like they would be better than just stapling the paper copies to your luggage. According to the documentation on the web site, they will work for numerous cruise lines. Appears they may make great gifts . . . . .

    If anyone has already used them, please let me know your thoughts.

    I haven't used them but there were some on my last princess cruise that did. The price isn't bad I suppose. I still prefer to use the tearable packing tape for tags that are printed out.

    If you have one of those event ticket protectors it's the same thing basically.

    There was a thread on C@ several months ago about plastic luggage tag holders. Many were still using staples, others clear tape, some were laminating their own. At the time, I ordered a supply of these plastic tag holders (can't tell you from whom), and I'm very happy I did - I like the quality. I hope to initiate them on our Veendam cruise next May!

    Thanks -- I will have to think about buying them if my hand-made ones don't last.

    I made plastic sleeves for our luggage tags -- the same sleeves have been used for 3 cruises -- I just slip the new tags into the holders. When we are ready to leave the hotel I attach them to the suitcases using cable ties.

    :thankyou::thankyou:

    Looks like an excellent product for the purpose and they appear fairly durable. The price and shipping are reasonable. May be giving these a try ...

    I use three luggage tags for one piece of luggage. I put one inside of the luggage in case the outside ones get torn. I put one tag on each handle. I still use my old fashion way of the paper tags. I also use a tag on my tote bag and carry on bag.

    Luci, I too place a copy of travel info inside the small zippered pocket on the luggage as well as on the handle.

    For the main tag..We use the nice plastic retro ones that we received from HAL.

    Thanks for the share, Tobyn and Bread. They look durable, and it sure beats having to ask the people behind the hotel desk to use their staplers! Now I just have to book a cruise...

    I've been using these for a number of years now in addition to "regular" luggage tags. Allows your luggage to catch up to you if it went astray.

    There are pro's and con's - pro is that you put your entire itinerary inside, including flight numbers/dates, hotels/dates, cruise details/dates so that your luggage can catch up with you. The con is that crooks know exactly where you are.

    So, you need to weigh one against the other.

    we also use the Magellan yellow retriever tags, and one good thing is that it makes your "blue" luggage easier to spot on the luggage carousel.

    And while we put the hotel, flights ship etc. info in them, we add a cell phone number for contact, and not our home address anywhere on our luggage.
    That way no one knows any more than that we started out from RDU

    This is one way to help protect yourself against thieves

    I've got five of them. I use two for each piece of luggage. I had two pieces of luggage (four luggage tags) when I cruised on the Carnival Spirit over Thanksgiving. They worked great.

    We just received them in the mail and are very happy with them. Of course time will tell, but they appear to be of good quality and very durable.
