Say goodbye to baggage mix-ups


Waiting at baggage claim as a sea of same-looking suitcases roll past can often lead to confusion — and at the very least anxiety.  But luxury travel brand Tumi has created a stylish way to tell your suitcase apart from all the others.  Enter “Accent Your Alpha”, a chic customization service that allows customers to spruce up their bags with colored components.

Parts of the bag that can be personalized with a pop of color include the monogrammed leather patch at front, luggage tag, add-a-bag hook, bag guards, zipper pulls and zippered pouch — so ideally you should be able to tell your bag apart from all others at any angle.  Customers can have red, pink, green, blue, silver or brown accents applied to their bags upon purchase at Tumi stores.  For those frequent fliers who already have a Tumi bag (or two, or three!), just bring it back to the store, buy the coloring kit for $50, and Tumi will put all the extra touches on your staple suitcase.

Leave it to Tumi to come up with a sleek and simple solution to baggage mix-up woes.  It seems so perfect in fact, it’s hard to believe they’ve only just started this service!

    That’s a great start and great service for their loyal travelers! Do they make golf travel bags?

    Good idea, but if you strapped for cash like me just get some coloured wool or string and tie it to your bag to make it noticable.
    It a cheap way to tell your bag apart.
