An amazing new $5 service will put $1000 back in your pocket the next time your airline messes up.
BUFFALO, NY -- 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 a look at one of my favorite new services that I just tested for USA Today Travel.
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.
The cost: $5 out of your pocket and 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.
