I am considering using Apple AirTags for our next trip. We have only had one incident of lost luggage, of course, it was a direct flight! Anyway, friends lost their gear for 3 days and I don't want that to happen to me. Thoughts?
I’ve had good luck with AirTags, and would never travel anywhere without them. The ones in my garage at home and in my hotel both updated in the last 10 min, they’re very reliable anywhere frequented by passers-by. They have their limitations but you will never find a better insurance bargain. $130 for a four-pack is an incredible deal even if you’re not an Apple person.
Air Tags have saved my ass. When we were in Cozumel last year my pelican roller case with $10k worth of camera gear had an air tag in it. There were 9 of us in a taxi to the Air BNB and I was responsible for making sure we got into the BNB so some of my friends offered to grab my bags while they unloaded. Well, somehow my camera case got set on the curb in front of the house and overlooked until about an hour later I realized it was missing. We walked back out to the curb and it was gone. I checked the Air Tag and it was shown as being in the neighbors garage. They had picked it up off of the curb thinking someone had put it in the trash since it was next to the trashcans (or so they claimed.) Luckily I had fluent Spanish speakers with me, we were able to explain the situation and I got my camera rig back.
