3. Make your bag stand out

"Criminals go after the nondescript, common bag ... because they don't want attention drawn to themselves," said Bruce McIndoe, president of iJET Intelligent Risk Systems, a travel security company based in Annapolis, Md. If your bag looks like all the other black roll-aboards, McIndoe said, a thief just a few feet away from you can swipe it from the carousel without your taking note of it. Consider buying brightly colored or oddly shaped luggage, or add neon-colored tape or handle wrap-arounds to luggage that you already own.
