Why you should put an AirTag in every piece of luggage

When traveling, the risk of losing luggage can be one of the most stressful aspects of any trip. To mitigate the concern over your luggage status and location, it can be helpful to keep an AirTag in each of your bags so you can track its precise location and provide further information in the event that your luggage gets lost.

Having product protection for both your luggage and AirTags can act as another precaution if something happens. With a Mulberry Unlimited subscription, you can get coverage for both under the same product protection plan, meaning you won't have to stress about expensive repairs and replacements if anything gets lost. Now, let's take a look at everything you need to know about AirTags and travel.

How does an AirTag work?

An AirTag is a small keychain that you can use to track your important items by seeing their location on a map on your phone. Whether you have one attached to your keys or in your purse, you'll be able to open the app and see each item’s individual location. It works by using Bluetooth through the same technology as other item locators within the Apple store. The data is stored within the Find My app, where you are also able to ‘Find my iPhone’ when it is stolen.

Here are some answers to common questions:

  • Do AirTags need to be charged? Only about once per year—the AirTag battery was designed to be low maintenance.
  • Are AirTags waterproof? Yes, they’re water resistant, so it’s ok if you drop you keys in a puddle of water, according to Apple.
  • Do AirTags make noise? When you turn on the mode to find a lost item and are actively searching through the Find My app, they may beep to help you locate the item faster.

How accurate are Apple AirTags?

AirTags are highly precise and can locate an item within 5-10 centimeters in range. Once you open the app, you can use it to find the lost item by tracking the location to the AirTag. Apple will walk you through directions until you get close enough to the item where you can see it. You can even put items in lost mode so that you get a notification when they are in close range.

Does Apple AirTag work with Android?

Since AirTag is an Apple-specific product, it doesn’t work with Android. That being said, AirTag is not the only item tracking tool on the market, and comparable products like the Samsung SmartTag is compatible with various non-Apple products.

How AirTags in your luggage can keep your items safe

When it comes to tracking your bags yourself, nothing competes with AirTags for luggage. With far-reaching location ranges, long-lasting battery, and a tracker right on your phone, putting an AirTag in each bag when you travel can be the difference between a pleasant and a stressful journey. Here are a few more reasons why they make a huge difference:

  • If your luggage is lost, you can help to locate where the mistake happened.
  • You can check that your bag enters the plane before you take off.
  • Prevent anyone from stealing your bag at the baggage claim.
  • Ensure that no individual items with additional AirTags on them are stolen from inside your bag at any point in the travel process.

Just remember, an AirTag luggage tag on the outside of your bag is not the best idea, as it risks getting broken off. Instead, always hide AirTags inside your luggage.
