Travel Advice | How $20 Can Save You $200
Today’s travel advice might look like something from a gynecology nightmare, but when you consider the prices for checking overweight luggage…the doctor is in. The moral of the story: A $20 Luggage Scale Can Save You $200!
The scale weighs less than a pound and is about the size of ham sandwich, so you can throw it in one of the side pockets in your suitcase and whip it out the night before a flight. They come in both digital and olden time scales.
Weighing the suitcase before you get to the airport is ALWAYS a good idea. No one wants to be that guy at the check-in counter on his hands and knees trying to figure out what to do with the 5 pounds of salt water taffy they bought at the boardwalk.
*Note* Airlines charge MUCH more for overweight international flights as well as overSIZED luggage.
