Summer 2023 is going to be big. And by that, I mean it’s expected to break travel records, as nearly 42.3 million Americans are expected to travel for Memorial Day weekend alone. With this sea of travelers flitting through airports around the world, luggage can inevitably get lost. Many of us have experienced grief, and it can be much easier if you have baggage trackers like Apple AirTags To help you locate your belongings at all times.
As a travel editor, these reliable little Bluetooth-enabled trackers have given me so much peace of mind for keeping track of my valuables that I now recommend them to all my friends. And I don’t know about you, but I’m taking the onset of summer as a cue to stock up on my already massive stash of Apple AirTags — especially during the… Apple AirTag Quad Pack On sale rare for under $90 this weekend.

The only time I remember is when I’m actively looking for something – usually my car. Although I often look for it in a parking garage, it’s useful in rare theft and towing emergencies as well. Take it from me: The last year before I bought these signs, my car was unexpectedly towed after being hit while parked on the street—and the next morning, I had no idea where it was. Suffice it to say that I immediately bought one of these.
Since I’ve been using Apple AirTags, luckily I didn’t lose any luggage (I always keep an eye on my phone if I have to check my gate). But if I did, I would at least have the peace of mind of knowing where in the world they end up so I know how to track them down, at least according to success stories from other professional travelers I know.
