Keep all essentials in your carry-on.

Documents, electronics, jewelry, and medication should never be stored in checked luggage. Keep them in your carry-on bag where you can keep an eye on them.

This will help you get through the first 48 hours if your check-in luggage gets lost.

Here's a list of the most common basics:

🔹Wallet and IDs

🔹Basic toiletries (a toothbrush, a deodorant)

🔹Medication

🔹Phone charger

🔹Change of underwear

And of course, add a Chipolo tracker to your luggage as well!

Bonus travel tip

Minimize how much you carry around with you while you travel.

Safe travels!
