See Where Your Luggage is Traveling With Trakdot!

See Where Your Luggage is Traveling With Trakdot!

Have you ever been hit with the sense that your luggage may be having a better vacation than you? Probably not, but the point is, many of us have checked in luggage, and it has theoretically "disappeared." Sure, some of us may get that luggage back...maybe, but for those who have lost their luggage to the wild abyss of airline mishandling, Trakdot is a state of the art device that is placed inside of your luggage so that it can be tracked when it's not with  you.

It is described as:

"First-ever luggage positioning solution with worldwide location reporting keeps you connected to your valuables
  • Place the palm-sized device in your luggage and it will send you a text with the location of your luggage as soon as you arrive
  • Provides peace of mind over baggage and valuables, used advanced technology to track luggage anywhere in the world from mobile phone or online

According to a February 12, 2013 press release issued by the Department of Transportation, it was stated that:
"The U.S. carriers reporting flight delays and mishandled baggage data posted a mishandled baggage rate of 4.15 reports per 1,000 passengers in December, up from both December 2011’s rate of 3.22 and November 2012’s rate of 2.64. "

(Press release number: DOT 15-3 "Airlines Report Lowest Mishandled Baggage Rate in 18 Years in 2012")

Despite the fact that lost and/or mishandled luggage is down significantly over the past 20 years; there is still a significant amount of lost and/or mishandled luggage to date, not to mention the stress and time involved with getting that luggage returned, as well as the condition of that luggage once it has been returned. Trakdot's revolutionary tracking device and service can take some of the stress out of worrying about your luggage; especially for those frequent travelers.
