The statistics say it all: the US Department of Transportation admits to more than 250,000 bags
Every label displays the name of the Globalbagtag website and a unique serial number registered against the owner's details, stored in the company's secure database (the tag does not show a name or address).
The owner can report the loss of any luggage online and track the status of the following search without making expensive international telephone calls. Globalbagtag works in association with most airlines and handling agents to facilitate luggage searches and will send you your good news by e-mail, phone or fax.
More than a million tags are already in circulation. And for more good news: South China Morning Post readers may obtain a 20 per cent discount on Globalbagtags by entering 'Agent Code SCMP' when ordering at the above website.
