TRAVEL TIPS--LUGGAGE WEIGHT & NUMBERS

As airlines are getting stricter about the sizes and numbers of carry-ons (thank heavens for that), they are also pulling in the reins on weight and number of checked baggage. Check with your carrier—or carriers since different airlines have different restrictions even if you are on connecting flights—to find out what you are allowed. Overweight or additional baggage can add hefty fees to your travels.

If you have a lot of baggage, you might consider one of the services that picks up your luggage and delivers it. The different in cost may be nominal. For instance, Princess Cruise Line offers this service at a cost per bag each way. You might decide to take your allowable luggage on the plane and ship the rest.

Search “luggage delivery service” or similar keywords and you will be surprised at the number and types of options available.
