How to safeguard Your luggage?

Once You have checked-in and checked-in Your luggage, Your items are sent to the luggage compartment. Through a labyrinth of conveyors, they arrive at the place of loading for the flight. Scanners on conveyors automatically determine where to send the necessary luggage: they read barcodes from luggage tags. To ensure that Your luggage journey, boarding the plane, unloading at the airport of arrival and reunion with You is smooth, please follow our tips.

*Pack your luggage carefully. Pack things in a suitcase or backpack so that they will not suffer from falling. Wrap fragile and sharp objects in clothes or bubble wrap so that they will not break on their own and will not ruin things around them. Don't overstuff the bag too much to avoid tearing the fabric or popping the zipper. It is better to attach protruding belts and slings tightly so that they will not catch on anything on the conveyor.

*Choose a brightly coloured suitcase. A red tourist backpack, a suitcase with forget-me-nots, a striped bag – the more unusual the luggage, the less likely it is to be taken by another passenger by mistake.

*Remove old baggage tags with barcodes from the suitcase. At the check-in desk, an airline employee will stick a luggage tag on Your backpack or suitcase. If the bag, in addition, has tags from previous flights, then the automatic sorting system can get confused and send Your belongings for additional manual check (and there it’s not far to miss the plane) or get to another flight. To ensure that everything goes smoothly, please remove any tags from previous flights before checking in Your baggage.

*Attach a tag with your name and phone number. Take Your essentials in Your hand luggage. The chance of not getting Your luggage is small, but it is still there. Therefore, to be on the safe side, take the most necessary and valuable things in hand luggage. Money, documents, jewelry and vital medicines – all these should be with You. Also bring chargers for gadgets to the cabin so as not to be left without communication.

*Come for checking-in early.

*If You are flying with a transfer, please check in Your baggage to Your final destination.

How did All INCLUSIVE come about?

The most popular version says that back in the 50s, the Belgian doctor Gerard Blitz proposed to introduce a similar system in the Club Med boarding house. Together with a friend, he organized a Club Med – a straw (literally) camp in Mallorca (Spain), where for 16 thousand francs a table d'hote, sports and mass entertainment awaited guests. Club Med has evolved over time into a chain of resorts. The impetus for the idea was the financial crisis in the United States. Strange as it may seem, families who, out of economy reasons, denied themselves from vacations, were willing to pay more for everything at once. Things went on, and by the 60s, almost all hotels in the Caribbean switched to a mode of operation that included three meals a day, drinks, the assortment of which varied depending on the class of the hotel, some kind of entertainment, and in some cases even tips, so dear to American heart. Soon, cruise ships switched to all inclusive, where such innovation has flourished – after all, vacationers on such liners practically live there, and sometimes for a month. Today, "all inclusive" has become a common issue almost everywhere where there is a sea, and not only.
