1) Make your luggage stand out
Manufacturers offer luggage in a wide range of colors but unless you go for a color that no one would pick, chances are your luggage will be similar to that belonging to thousands of others. You can use stickers or temporary tattoos to add some character to your luggage. Other options are embroidering designs on them, painting them on, or drawing them there.
2) Vacuum bags
If you’re struggling to fit more things into less space, then grab some vacuum bags to help you save space. With these bags, you fold and roll your clothing, put it in the bags, and then force the air out. If you’re having to travel overseas for your vacation, a few vacuum bags can save you big-time on extra bag fees!
3) Lock your luggage
Securing your belongings against theft is something many travelers have to worry about. Purchasing a luggage lock can not only help you with another way to customize your bags — it can give you the peace of mind you need to enjoy the trip and to be certain that no one is going through your belongings without your knowledge.
