Checked Baggage Fees on International Flights

Posted on: September 29, 2009

For our international travelers, new words of advice:  Pack light and check the airline’s Web site for updates on checked baggage fees and policies.  I came across this link to a USA Today article on Twitter: http://goplanit.com/l/1dv

At my agency, Celebrations International Travel, we’ve found the surge of new baggage policies, weight limits, etc. all to be so confusing and ever-changing, we simply remind travelers to check the airline Web sites for their most up-to-date information before they pack their bags.

As much as airline travel costs these days, it’s a shame that your bags can’t travel free even overseas anymore.  But maybe a little creative packing and space-saving will help you avoid some of the cost of checking that extra bag.  Or maybe traveling with a partly-empty bag will give you room to bring home souvenirs!

Do you have packing or international travel tips you’d like to share?  Post them here, and I’ll also share them on Twitter.  (We’re on Twitter @CelebrationsInt.)
