There is no doubt that attaching AirTags to your baggage while traveling is a must, as it makes it easier for you to track and retrieve this baggage easily, and it was reported recently that some travelers have recovered their lost bags thanks to AirTags. Throughout your journey, you can monitor your luggage and know where it arrived. This is not the ease of retrieving it at the last stage before leaving the airport. To get the most out of your AirTags while traveling, check out these tips.
How to use AirTags while traveling
AirTags retail for just $29 apiece or $99 for four AirTags. Pick one up and put it in your bag, or use all four if the family is with you, and follow this tip:
Don't put it in a visible place
Do not place AirTags in a visible place, whether by hanging them in a medal, or hanging them in any visible place of your clothes or luggage. This is not recommended, as you may face intransigence from the airline employees, and refuse to have them with you. Who knows the laws of those countries, or even their security concerns may be Exaggerated, to the point where they may view tracking devices as a national security risk.
Instead of displaying it or hanging it in a visible place, why not drop it in the middle of your things or in a pocket! But not too deep so that there is no problem with the connection.
Locate your baggage at the baggage claim centre
Many airlines offer the ability to track your checked baggage through their website or through a mobile app. This allows you to see the current location of your bags and make sure they are on the same flight as you. This feature can provide peace of mind and help alleviate any concerns about lost or delayed baggage. In addition, you can also contact the airline's customer service if you are not sure about the status of your baggage.
And when you reach the final leg of your journey, you may not have to wait long to find your bag at the baggage claim centre. Simply open the Find My app, tap your bag in the Items tab, and tap Find to find out exactly where it is. You can also set up a notification to be alerted when your bags arrive at a specific location such as a baggage claim location. You can view their current location and route on the map.
This feature can save you a lot of time and reduce the stress of trying to find your luggage among a sea of similar bags.
Add a widget to the home screen
If you are on a long trip, you may find yourself opening the Find My app a lot to keep track of your bags, “Just like me, but with the refrigerator, I open it a lot for and without reason, I don’t know, is it just me?” Will the bags leave you and get off the plane to monitor them throughout the flight? The point is, if you are one of those people, you can make things simpler by using widgets on the home screen.
To do this, first tap and hold to edit the home screen, then tap the + sign at the top and scroll down to add the Find My widget, then add it to the screen.
If you have multiple AirTags, keep track of the correct one. Click on the widget while in edit mode and select the element you want to track.
