Avoid Airline Baggage Fees Over the Holidays

We’ve all been there: Scrambling through a suitcase in front of an un-amused airline employee to avoid a surprise baggage fee. Not fun.

With all the airlines charging different rates and having various baggage limits, it’s hard to know what to expect in terms of cost (as if holiday traveling isn’t stressful enough on its own). But this season, you can know what to expect, thanks to LuggageLimits.com. The free site, launched by a man who was slapped with a $500 baggage fee on his way back to the U.S. from Australia (yup, we said $500), helps you easily calculate luggage fees from more than 175 airlines based on your destination and arrival airports. Saving on baggage fees means you can spend your cash for more important things…like the airport bar. We love it.
