Gatwick Baggage Information - FAQs

What do I do if I lose luggage at Gatwick Airport?

The experience of flying can be stressful enough without having to worry about your bags. When you're at the airport, or on a plane and find yourself with missing baggage it is important that you take care of things quickly if possible so as not to let anything else interfere with your trip. For example, British Airways' lost luggage desk will help out at arrivals close by where they have their bag reclaim area set up - which may make for easier access in case there was an issue picking up luggage once arriving back home after a flight.

Be prepared to:

  • Complete a lost baggage report describing the model, make and colour of your baggage.
  • Give them your baggage tag receipt to aid British Airways in finding your luggage.
  • Exchange contact numbers and you will also be given a tracking reference number.

Luton Airport Taxis Reviews
I booked 1ST Airport Taxis after trawling the web looking for a good deal, especially as we needed collecting at 05:00 to go to Luton, and then arriving back at 23:30! Most companies quoted about £50+ for the night collection.
I’m very sceptical about local taxis until I booked these guys. I travelled with my family, booked the 8-seater. I’d rate the overall experience 9/10. Cheers.
