Track your bags

You can track the location of your checked bags from your phone or tablet. We’ll let you know when your bags are loaded, unloaded and ready to be picked up at baggage claim. We scan bags at most airports and provide updates as soon as they become available.

How to track bags

Here’s how to check the status of your bags when you travel with us:

Download

Download the United app to get started. This feature works on Android (version 4.3 or higher) and iOS (version 10 or higher). You also need a current flight reservation with checked bags.

Track

Select "Track my bags" on the home page or go to "View reservations". If you don’t see your information, enter your bag tag number or scan the barcode on your bag receipt.

Track your bags FAQ

Track your bags FAQ

Yes. Most of the time, bags that do not arrive with you are just delayed. The app will show the delay, and we will make every effort to get your bags to you quickly. If you do not get your bags within five days, they are considered lost. In both cases, you may be able to file a claim. For more information, visit the issues with your checked bags page.

Our app can only show data for bags on our flights. If you are traveling on another airline, the status will say "Bag data not available" until we receive your bags.
