Protect your belongings with Protectabag

Do you get paranoid that airport staffs and customs officers peek into our checked-in luggages/bags and sometimes steal important belongings? I do, this is the reason why it keeps me from buying high-ticket items and bringing it here because aside from paying taxes from the customs, I’m afraid it might get lost in transit too. I’ve read about stories that their luggages have been slashed and airport authorities just can’t point on who’s responsible for that.

Well, now there’s a solution, Protectabag. I saw this at the NAIA Terminal 3 just beside the Travel Tax payment counter. They will wrap your luggage/boxes with cling wrap generously.

Can Protectabag ward off those #laglagbala syndicate in NAIA?

Nice and secure! Rates start at Php 160 per luggage (Price as of 2011).

UPDATE (November 4, 2015)

With the #laglagbala modus operandi in NAIA all over the news, I think this Protectabag is making a killing with its earnings now. But better spend a few hundreds than being victimized by this scheme.

  3. I’d been traveling internationally since I was 16 but I never heard of this except here in the Philippines. I mean I don’t hear airport staff from other airports slashing and stealing your stuff in checked in baggages. I heard Filipino customs do this. But when I got to NAIA Arrival, I never encountered this but now I’m warned …thanks.
    But thanks for this tip and that tip about smelly dirty underwear…..hahahah.

    Yes Bingkee, I also traveled from other countries and they don’t check luggages there because nobody attempts to steal. Unfortunately, it’s the other way around in the Philippines and we have to resort to using wraps just to protect luggages.
    The underwear thing is disgusting, I know, but if that’s what it takes to save me from customs, I’ll do it, haha…
