Checked Laptops Can Be Easily Lost or Stolen

The thought of packing your laptop in your checked luggage may raise a red flag in your mind because you are worried that it may be stolen or because airlines regularly lose or misplace luggage.

Bottom Line

The risks of packing your laptop in your checked baggage outweigh the convenience of not carrying your laptop on the plane with you. In addition to the potential of being lost or stolen, your laptop may also be easily broken, loaded carelessly on the plane or cracked due to pressure and low temperatures in the plane's cargo bin.
