Luggage locks are needed when travelling, particularly when your bag is going to be out of your possession. Not only does securing your baggage with luggage locks a way of stopping people stealing from you, it is also a way of stopping people hiding something in there that they want to illegally get through customs.
Travel locks can be either key operated or they can use a combination lock. You should ensure that every pocket of your baggage is secure as you don't want to end up being the person who gets arrested for unknowingly carrying illegal items through custom.
A travel lock isn't required on your luggage if you are just putting it in your car and you will be handling the bag yourself. However, whenever you think anyone else might have to handle your luggage, you should consider using a travel lock.
A luggage lock can be a series of different measures to secure your belongings. It can be a mixture of lockable straps with zips that have been locked together. It is always worth remembering that a thief is more likely to go after a suitcase with little or no security, rather than one that will take longer to break into. Unfortunately, a luggage lock can't do anything to stop the airport staff losing your luggage...
Travel Sentry is a company that oversees and manages travel security standards. The Travel Sentry system is used all over the world including here in the UK. Initially the Travel Sentry approved locks were only available as stand alone products, but the system was licenced to other companies and now travel bags with integrated locking systems can be Travel Sentry approved.
