After spending hundreds of pounds booking a holiday, not to mention buying new clothes and toiletries, the last thing you want to happen is to lose your luggage.
You might have come across Apple’s famous luggage tracker tags, but although holiday-goers highly recommend the product, they can be a bit pricey.
If you’ve been looking for something similar before you jet away across the world or book a weekend city break, here are some of the cheapest GPS tags we have found on Amazon along with their reviews.
At the time of writing, the prices of all products available are correct.
Some of the cheapest GPS luggage trackers
Anker's eufy luggage tracker
This product works with iPhones and once activated, the locations of your items can be shared with your friends and family.
Although it works via Bluetooth, it’s also trackable using the Apple ‘Find My’ app, so your items can be found anywhere in the world.
The tag also has “left-behind” alerts and is water resistant.
One review said: "Now I will say I still have a few AirTags and that’s completely fine. What I will say is Anker’s Eufy Security Tag is a great addition to your trackers set up with Find My capabilities built in, so you can use it in near enough the same way as an AirTag. So it’s good for popping on a spare pair of keys or slipping into your Passport document wallet for holidays/trips.
Happy 39th Birthday to us! 🎂

"It has it’s own app and also can be tracked in the same place as your AirTags and other apple products in the FindMy App."

LandAirSea luggage tracker
The battery of this magnetic and waterproof device lasts around 1-2 weeks and can be hidden discretely in pockets and bags.
Users can track their items via the track and map (with Google Maps) in real-time through the company’s specially designed software.
A customer wrote: “Looked at lots of trackers prior to purchasing this one. Was dubious as seemed such a bargain at under £20. I was fully aware there would be a subscription and in my opinion, prices for that are all around the same for this type of device. This one had several options to suit every budget. Used today and was surprised at how accurately it tracked and how clear the images were on map. It even told me the speed of the vehicle it was travelling in.”
Please note, for this device there is a paid subscription to the SilverCloud web-based platform.

“The Functionality of this product is amazingly good, at an affordable price. It was reasonably easy to set up. Their sales/technical team are good and helpful. I purchased the tracker for many reasons, peace of mind for one, if my car was tampered with or stolen the tracker would let me know straight away. Would definitely recommend,” wrote one user.

@cici.inthesky Apple AirTags are a convenient and effective way to track luggage. Simply attach the small tag to your luggage and use the Find My app to locate it. The precision of the AirTag's location tracking ensures that you can find your luggage quickly and easily, no matter where it is. With its long battery life and durable design, the AirTag is the perfect travel companion for anyone who wants to keep their luggage safe and secure. #flightattendant .#traveltips #traveltipsandhacks #lostluggage #lostluggageissues ♬ original sound - All Things Travel
