Have bag, will travel, but with peace of mind!!

Introducing i-TRAK, a revolutionary new luggage tracking solution, set to help with the nightmare of lost luggage  

An estimated 20 million bags annually are mislaid by the world’s airlines, and if it has ever happened to you, you will know the sense of panic and frustration when the last suitcases come off the conveyor belt and yours is not among them.  Now there’s a new service called  i-TRAK which could make the nightmare of losing luggage a thing of the past.   

Using sophisticated tagging and tracking technology, i-TRAK aims to improve significantly the chances of having luggage returned to its owner as well as making the recovery process easier and faster.  


How to get on i-TRAK :  


The i-TRAK system works by Users attaching specially designed tags to their luggage. Users then register their tags’ unique codes either online ( or by sending a registration card via the postal service. i-TRAK has been developed over the past 18 months by experienced luggage handling experts and is fully compatible with existing airline tracking systems.  



If a bag is lost:   

  • If a bag with i-TRAK tags is lost, the system goes into active search. Once i-TRAK has a report that the bag has been found, the system will automatically notify the User via an SMS text message to their mobile phone.  

  • Users will also be able to check their account at the i-TRAK website at any time to see what the status of their lost luggage is. Additionally, Users who opt for the Platinum i-TRAK service will receive the extra benefit of receiving a telephone call from the i-TRAK customer service team notifying them in person (or a designated alternative contact) on the whereabouts of their luggage.

What it costs:


The basic charge for i-TRAK is 8.95, the price being for a years service for two pieces of luggage and renewals being 2.99 per bag for additional years for the Classic i-TRAK service.
