Do you want to leave serenely in the sun without spending astronomical sums in additional baggage fees? We give you some keys to save money!

When traveling during the summer holidays, you don’t want to have any unpleasant surprises once you arrive at the check-in counter. To avoid any inconvenience, we give you tips to limit the costs. It’s not easy to travel light when you’ve planned a three-week vacation. If you are going with the family, it is easy to distribute the kilos evenly in the different suitcases. It’s a completely different matter when you travel alone or in pairs!

No more heavy suitcases when traveling

Take the bare minimum in your suitcases. We tend to want to take everything “just in case”. If you want to plan ahead, watch the weather forecast so you don’t bring extra clothes. To be sure of not having a supplement, check with your company to find out the maximum weight allowed for checked baggage. Then, don’t forget to weigh your suitcases before you leave. For the return it’s just as complicated… You forget to leave room in your bag for souvenirs. The good idea: send your little gifts by parcel.

Internet: the right plan to save

When you subscribe to a company’s loyalty program, you can access many advantages such as reductions or additional baggage authorized in the hold. Paying your fees directly on the Internet allows you to save money rather than waiting until the last moment and paying at the check-in counter.

Tips at the airport

Remember to respect the reception staff at the check-in counter. He might even give you a thumbs up on supplements. If you have a few extra things, bring bags into the cabin rather than forcing everything into the suitcase. Some companies allow two bags in the cabin with regulated dimensions.
