Quick Tip: How to avoid damaged checked luggage

Jason Knowles and the I-Team have these quick tips for traveling with checked baggage.

In a recent case, one woman's luggage was returned to her burned, torn and in a garbage bag.

First of all, avoid damage to your luggage by taking off any extra straps so they don't get snagged and caught in conveyor belts.

Second, take a fast smartphone video of your clothes and items in your checked luggage as your packing to make it easier to make a claim on damaged or lost items.

Third, avoid checking expensive items like perfume which may not be covered under airline policies. Also, plus read those policies before you pack.
