If you re tired of lost baggage or dealing with an airline s customer service while you wait five days for that bag to be returned, today we work your perks.

Whether you travel for business or pleasure, a great new service we ve tested will pay you $1,000 for each bag lost by any airline after four days it s missing.

Have you ever been in a situation where you arrive at your destination for an important presentation or meeting without a suitcase? By the time the airline locates your missing bag (if they ever find it), you ve likely spent more than $100 replacing your clothing or toiletries and the airline only reimburses you if they completely lose your bag - and they don t offer much!

Today that all change for $5. The minor fee out of your pocket also gets you peace of mind which we consider priceless. The fine print is easy to understand, the customer service is great and this baggage protection service from Blue Ribbon Bags is a fantastic concept.

If you have a bag with a replacement value of $2,000, a $10 insurance fee is all you would need to pay per trip and $7.50 per bag will get you a $1500 check if your bag goes missing for more than four days.

This is one of my favorite new travel services and I recently tested it several times for a travel series I do with USA Today. If you d like more information visit: or @MattGranite on twitter.
