Luggage is perhaps the main issue that tourists face when traveling, especially by air. Unexpected expenses may await travelers at the airport due to exaggerated weight or dimensions.

For traveling, it is worth choosing functional bags and not packing unnecessary items. OBOZREVATEL has compiled practical tips on how to avoid additional costs for luggage (to watch the video, scroll to the end).

  • Suitcase size

When buying a ticket online, pay attention to the luggage dimensions allowed by the airline. It is not always standard. For example, low-cost airlines always require an additional fee and include in the ticket price only a small bag up to 8 kilograms.

  • Choosing a bag

If you don't want to overpay, a soft bag or backpack is a win-win. In this case, airline employees may not check their weight. Don't skimp on buying a suitcase; choose a model with compartments, pockets, and dividers. Every space can be filled. Optimal organization will not only help you avoid baggage fees but will also make it easy to find your belongings during your vacation.

  • Essentials

Traveling with ease is only possible if you take the essentials with you. A heavy suitcase, a lot of stuff, and unnecessary expenses can ruin a vacation. Before you start filling your suitcase, take the time to make a list of the items you'll need during your trip. This will help you stay organized and avoid the temptation to take unnecessary items.

  • Wear the heavy stuff on you

Heavy sneakers, coats, or sweaters should be worn on your person rather than put in your suitcase. This way, you can fit more important things into your suitcase and take up less space. Heavy and bulky items can be carried in your hands and do not need to be put on the scales at the airport.

  • Packing methods

Maximize the space in your suitcase with the right packing techniques. Use compression bags to reduce the volume, which can significantly optimize the available space. Clothes should be rolled up so they take up less space.
