Don't put your name and address anywhere on your bags! You never know who's looking over your shoulder so don't risk advertising that you're away from home. And with the rise in identity fraud, don't make it easy for them! Try using tags like Tag 'n' Traq from CallUma - they use a personalised tracking number instead. AND they got my bags back to me within 4 hours of them being lost!!
