How to save on baggage fees

While travelers may argue over how expensive baggage fees may be, everyone can agree that they’d prefer to save money on those fees. The best way to beat baggage fees is to pack light, using only carry-on luggage, or being mindful of weight limits on baggage. If you know you’ll need to check at least one bag, consider booking a ticket with one checked bag included (and make sure your bags don’t exceed the weight limit to avoid overweight fees). Checked baggage fees are often cheaper if you pay them ahead of time.

Some travelers get even more creative with some of their ideas for minimizing the amount spent on baggage fees, such as by choosing to buy toiletries once they arrive at their destination, for example.

To save space in your luggage and maximize your savings while on vacation, consider these tips:

  • Layer up: While every airline has regulations regarding what you’re allowed to carry on, there are no hard and fast rules about what you’re allowed to have on your person when boarding an airplane, Clever travelers have bucked the baggage fee by opting to wear as much of their luggage as possible, from layers upon layers of clothes to purchasing special coats or vests with pockets for maximum storage space. If you get creative enough with your layering, you might even skip carrying a bag altogether.
  • Pick the right credit card: There are plenty of credit cards to choose from that offer all sorts of travel perks, including airline miles, airport lounge access and even complimentary checked baggage. If you think you’ll be able to use a credit card enough to rack up those airline perks – and if a new credit card makes financial sense for you – check out the travel perks offered by the likes of Capital One, American Express and Chase, and start saving those points to earn your free checked bags for your next trip.
  • Fly the right airline: Some travelers choose to fly specific airlines, such as Southwest, that uphold a “no baggage fee” policy, while others choose to ship their luggage to their destination, which can sometimes be more affordable than airline baggage fees. (Use our chart below to learn the baggage policies of the airline you’re flying.)
  • Pack smarter: Bring a few outfits and do laundry at your destination, and limit yourself to 1 or 2 pairs of shoes.
  • Consolidate to save: If you’re traveling with a group, divide luggage between people traveling with you, or put some of your items in a child’s bag or a diaper bag.
  • Try alternatives to folding: Roll or bundle pack your clothes (instead of folding them). These methods can be more efficient ways of packing as they save space and helps minimize wrinkling of clothing items.

Traveling with large items

Some items don’t fit in a suitcase, but having them in tow is either necessary or would make the trip a lot more enjoyable. From sporting equipment to strollers to medical equipment, check out some of our tips for traveling with large items.

Sporting equipment

  • Going skiing in the Alps or planning a coast-to-coast biking adventure? If you’d prefer to take your equipment with you, you can find a few tips on traveling with your skis or snowboard in this guide. For other equipment, like surfboards, consider the following advice:
  • Confirm with your airline(s) in advance that they consider equipment bags to be one piece of checked baggage. Policies vary from airline to airline. Calling in advance can save you a lot of time and trouble as airline policies can change over time.
  • Remember that your airline’s weight restrictions apply to sporting gear bags, too. If your airline only allows luggage up to 50 pounds, be prepared to pay extra if your gear exceeds that limit.
  • When traveling with surfboards, be aware that some airlines will charge per bag while others charge per board. Charges could be between $50 and $150 per board, which can run up added fees, depending on how many boards you’re taking with you.
  • As of 2017, there are a few airlines that will count your surfboard as part of your regular bag allowance, free of charge. These airlines include Virgin Atlantic Airlines, Interjet, Qantas, South African Airways, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, Air New Zealand and Singapore Airlines.
  • When traveling internationally with your board or sporting equipment, please keep in mind that European Union (EU) laws do not allow bags to be more than 32 kgs (70.5 lbs). Bags exceeding this weight limit will not be accepted as checked luggage. Instead, they must be sent by air freight and are subject to air freight rates. When in doubt, try to make sure your bag is underweight instead of pushing the limit.
  • Consider renting equipment at your destination.

Car seats and strollers

If you’re traveling with little ones in tow, you’ll likely want to bring your own strollers and car seats. Many airlines will accommodate these large items. Here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Most, if not all, major airlines allow you to check strollers and children’s car seats with no added fees.
  • You can take your child’s safety seat with you and use it on the plane, however, it must be FAA-certified. To make sure your airline allows this, call ahead to confirm.
  • Keep in mind that while many airlines will accept a stroller, this policy often refers to collapsible strollers less than 20 pounds. Be sure to call your airline in advance to make sure your stroller meets any restrictions.

Medical equipment

Having a medical condition doesn’t mean that you can’t or shouldn’t travel. Airlines will often go above and beyond to accommodate passengers who require special medical equipment. Here are a few tips:

  • If you’re traveling with a medical device such as a CPAP machine, it’s covered as a carry-on device under the Americans with Disabilities Act. It is also addressed in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and Canadian Human Rights Act. But make sure to check with your airline to confirm any rules around the in-flight use of your machine.
  • If you have a health condition (such as emphysema) that requires an oxygen tank, you will need your doctor to provide you with necessary medical forms and a note for oxygen tank usage, as well as recommendations for emergency doctors in the place where you’re planning to travel.
  • While you can’t bring an oxygen tank in the cabin as a carry-on, you can pack empty oxygen tanks in your checked luggage that can be filled once you arrive at your destination. These oxygen tanks must be FAA approved and you’ll need to notify your airline(s) at least two weeks in advance that you’ll be traveling with the tanks. You can also bring a personal oxygen concentrator compressor on board usually and it doesn’t count as a carry-on.

The great debate: Carry it on or check it?

Ever wonder how many other travelers are opting to carry on their bags or checking their luggage? Here are some statistics to think about while you’re walking past the airport’s baggage claim:

Domestic vs. international

In a Cheapflights poll of 400 Americans and Canadians, 66% of those surveyed said they preferred to carry on their luggage for domestic flights. When it came to international flights, people were almost evenly divided with 50% preferring to carry on their luggage and 50.5% preferring to check it.

How much is too much to pay when checking baggage?

Among those polled, 41% felt it was appropriate to pay $25 or less to check baggage. A slightly smaller group (38% of travelers) were comfortable paying $50 or less, while 14% were willing to pay $75 to check their bags and only 7% were willing to pay as much as $100 to check their bags for a flight.
