6 Ways To Avoid Excessive Airline Fees
A $25 bag fee here. A $5 early boarding charge there. Then it's $15 for WiFi,[url=http://www.p90x-workout.org/]p90x workout sheets[/url], followed by a $12 lunch. No one's charging for the privilege of using the bathroom yet but don't be surprised if it does happen.
Last year alone,[url=http://www.doudoune--moncler.fr/]moncler[/url], all of those extra charges added up to a whopping $27.1 billion in revenue for the major airlines.
As the days of being nickel and dimed have given way to being fifty ed and hundred ed, air travelers have been forced to be all the more vigilant about how much they'll be charged in the long run. Of course, the smartest flyers never pay anything extra at all and often end up traveling just as comfortably.
Just in time for holiday travel,[url=http://www.ferragamo-shoes-outlet@#$%&/]ferragamo shoes[/url], we asked top industry experts to divulge six ways you can avoid getting gouged by airlines.
Most domestic carriers charge extra to check even the first bag, while international flights usually allow only one checked bag for free with weight limits. The most effective answer to this problem is the simplest: Don't check a bag. Ever. "[Carry ons] technically have a weight limit,[url=http://www.poloralph-lauren-outlet@#$%&/]@#$%&[/url], but I've never had them weighed in all my travels."
And before you claim that you can't fit everything into a carry on,[url=http://www.burberryoutletonlinei@#$%&/]burberry outlet[/url], Grimmer has a comeback: You're probably using the wrong bag. He only ever travels with a rectangular,[url=http://www.bottes-uggpascher.fr/]ugg @#$%&[/url], wheel free carry on. With wheeled bags,[url=http://www.nikeairmaxe.co.uk/]@#$%& air[/url], "the frame takes up about 40% of the volume,[url=http://www.sunglasses-raybans@#$%&/]raybans@#$%&[/url]," says Grimmer. But once you lose the wheels, you can fit nearly twice as much inside. "I've taken eight month trips with the right bag,[url=http://www.oakleysunglasses-outletcheap@#$%&/]oakley sunglasses[/url]," says Grimmer,[url=http://www.thenorthface-outlet.us@#$%&/]north face jackets clearance[/url], "without checking any luggage."

"Consider the value of free checked baggage when selecting your airline,[url=http://www.ghd-hairstraighteners.co.uk/]ghd hair[/url]," says Cadez. "Typically, the first bag costs $25 and the second one is $35 on domestic flights." So if you're going golfing in Arizona and know that you'll need to check two bags, keep in mind that you'll pay $120 less in fees on Southwest than with another carrier. Bonus tip: You can compare baggage fees on Kayak's airline fees chart.

In addition to a sturdy,[url=http://www.toms-outlets.us/]toms shoes outlet[/url], wheel free bag,[url=http://www.mulberryhandbags-outlet.co.uk/]mulberry handbags[/url], frequent international travelers should invest in a luggage scale a few bucks up front will save you the hassle of showing up at the airport only to be told that you owe a fee. Weigh your bags at home (most airlines allow up to 50 pounds per checked bag),[url=http://www.nikeairmaxa.co.uk/]@#$%& air[/url], and if you're over the limit,[url=http://www.lunetterayban-pas-cher.fr/]@#$%& @#$%&[/url], move some of that weight into your carry on or leave some extraneous items at home.
