As summer travel begins all over the country, travelers are finding unique ways to protect their luxury luggage from thieves at the airport.

TikToker Bbyekra (@bbyekra) has gone viral for posting a video showcasing her Louis Vuitton duffle bag being saran wrapped at the Malaga Airport. 

The text overlay reads, “How to disguise your expensive travel bags, I didn’t know this was a thing now.”

In the video, Bbyekra’s bag is placed on a spinning machine and fully wrapped in saran plastic. After the bag is wrapped, a Malaga Airport staff member places a “fragile” sticker on it. The video has grossed over 1.1 million views and 27,700 likes.

In the comments section, many viewers expressed that taking a cheaper travel bag would be easier and prevent theft. 

“Or take a cheap bag,” one viewer offered. 

“Or just don’t get designer bags and check them in? I have a smaller supreme suitcase suitable for the cabin because I’d never check them in,” a second suggested.

“Well now they know to grab the bags that are covered, doing a good job making thieves’ lives easier n showing us,” another noted. 

Bbyekra replied to the viewer’s comment, writing, “The bags are insured when u use their service as u see in the second clip.”

The Daily Dot contacted Bbyekra (@bbyekra) via Instagram Direct Message and Malaga Airport via email.
