    Great list! I think luggage tags are essential when travelling, if you customise the look of your bag then you will easily be able to spot it, plus if it gets lost you will have your name and address on display! I think its also important to invest in some good quality luggage that is designed to hold the amount you wish to take abroad, only too many times I have had the zip break on my luggage bag!
