Dealing with the aftermath of airline lost luggage can be costly and very, very time wasting but ReboundTAG have come up with an excellent cost effective answer.
Using RFID technology held within a tiny but robust label attached to your suitcase the company say that it can trace that bag pretty well anywhere in any airport around the world.
With the use of both high-tech electronic scanning devices or just with a simple unique reference number that information can be entered into their system and they will be able to contact the owner of that suitcase by reading the attached label with whatever system is in use at a particular airport.
GET YOUR BAG BACK WITH A TAG
ReboundTAG is the first microchip luggage tag that will work in all airports worldwide. It has been designed by working with airlines, airport microchip companies and baggage handling specialists as well as other parts of the travel industry.
Using International Air Transport Association approved radio frequency identification (RFID) micro-chip systems has been key. Advanced airports like Hong Kong and Amsterdam use these systems and for other airports it incorporates multi layers of technology and more basic ones to keep an item of luggage safe.
The NFC microchip can be scanned with most current smartphones. The ReboundTAG system offers their owners an easy way that it can use the GPS location of a finder’s smartphone to send the owner a map of exactly where their bag was found. But the key here is that the owner’s details remain private and secure.
A QR code can also be scanned again using smart phones and at the lowest level of technology or even out-side an airport the ID number printed on the tag can be manually entered and yet again the owners details remain private.
ReboundTAG is integrated with global baggage handling networks using a system endorsed by the head of airports at IATA. Tag owners are updated by email and SMS when their bag is located anywhere in the world.
Its also possible for the bag owner to be updated if an airlines’ paper tag is used to identify the bag due to their partnerships with major national and international baggage handling networks.
The multiple layer of technology used in a tag and with it being integrated into global baggage handling systems the chances of getting you bag back are massively increased and I for one will be using mine the next time I travel for sure!
