AirTag comes with its Apple’s brand of accessories that can be used to attach it on backpacks, wallets, suitcases, etc. But the accessories cost quite a lot compared to the price of the AirTag. For example Apple’s AirTag Leather Key Ring costs around Rs. 3590/. Unlike other tags in the market,  which have predrilled holes, AirTag does not come with a predrilled hole. Because of that AirTags cannot be tagged with cheaper key chains or tags to the baggage/backpacks.

According to iFixit, it is possible to drill a hole on the AirTag which will help you use your own key chain or Tags. Is it advisable to do so? I would say NO.
