    Getaway Series: Lugloc Luggage Tracker – By Bryan Brazeau

    The frequent traveler’s greatest fear is losing one’s luggage. While airlines are usually able to get the luggage back to you, it can take days for them to track it down and deliver it. Travelers these days can be filled with anxiety and worry, particularly if you’ve packed any valuables in your luggage. Such worry is now a thing of the past, thanks to the Lugloc luggage tracking system.

    This small device fits inside your luggage, and the phone app allows you to locate your bag anywhere in the world, using GSM-GPRS technology (also used by cell phones). It also features LE Bluetooth technology so you can know whether your luggage made it onto the plane, and know when it’s about to come out on the carousel. What’s more, it won’t interfere with avionics since it automatically shuts off sending and receiving functions whenever it is in motion. The device costs around $70, and comes with 15 days of unlimited traces, after which time, you can purchase traces from Lugloc (either in packages of 5 or 10 if you’re an infrequent traveller, or unlimited traces for a year for $29.99).

    Smart luggage: 7 ground-breaking travel accessories

    What do you get when you combine a suitcase with the latest digital technology?

    Smart luggage.

    If the only smart feature you want is the ability to track your bag, save some money and buy a LugLoc. With a tap on the app, a map will appear showing the location of your suitcase, regardless of where in the world it is.

    What can smart bags do that your usual luggage can’t?

    All sorts of cool stuff, according to discoveries made at this year’s Travel Goods Showcase in Las Vegas.

    In many cases, smart luggage links to your mobile phone via an app, which manages most of the bag’s features.

    For instance, you can unlock your bags remotely with your phone or track them wherever and however far they may get away from you.

    In some cases, high-tech features are built right into the bag.

    For example, you can use your suitcase to recharge mobile devices or to get a party started — several feature speakers that transform a suitcase into a boom box.
