A good and durable luggage is not only needed, but a "must" for travel. How do you choose a luggage?
Choose a luggage with several compartments where you can put all your necessities away.
Be sure that compartments for stowing away liquid toiletries are in water-proof storage areas.
Choose a travel bag or luggage where you can put your clothes nicely, folded nicely.
A storage with ventilation or netting is a must to stow your soiled tennis shoes, hotel slippers, or any other shoes that have been used.
As an airline insider who used to open untagged luggage, I noticed that several people store their dirty shoes together with their clean clothes. I don't know about you but I will not wear any clothes that have been soiled with used dirty shoes.
If at all possible, try not to check in any luggage. Most airlines now charge $15.00 for the first check bag, and $25.00 for the second checked bag, and the 3rd bag now cost too much, as much as $150.00.
Travel light is the key. If you can carry most of your stuff in all easy to roll bag, the better.
If you have to check a luggage, be sure that you have your name tag outside the bag, inside the bag, and put some in the pockets as well. The more name tags and phone numbers, the better. I have seen so many bags whose straps were caught between the bag belt, resulting in no name tags or airline tags at all. If you have a name --even a piece of paper - a bond paper with your name and phone number, the airline personnel can easily forward the luggage to your final destination.
Do not check in your medicine, make up, jewelry, electronics, valuable items. If you have to, be sure to buy extra insurance, not from the airline, but from an outside insurance agency - usually available at the airports.
Antiques, heirlooms that are irreplaceable are not covered by the airline's liability insurance. It is better to send them separately by FedEx or by UPS, or better still, by USPS.
In checking a luggage, always remember, you are the only one that really cares about the contents of your luggage. This is not to say that the airline employees do not care, but their care could not replace the care and love that you give to your own belongings.
