Getaway Series: Lugloc Luggage Tracker – By Bryan Brazeau

One of a frequent traveler’s greatest fears 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. For the exhausted traveler, 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).
