Packing tips for those Summer holidays.
Perhaps if you’re lucky- you’ve already jetted off somewhere, been camping, or been adventuring away from home. But maybe you’ve wanted to hold out for the cheapest deals- or to take a holiday before the kids go back to school. Perhaps, like plenty of others, you’re now the proud owner of a last minute holiday!
If you’re in a rush to pack and leave, you need to get your luggage right! Depending on where you are flying to and what airline you’re using, your luggage allowance can vary. Many airlines charge more for you to take more than the bare minimum, so you need to pack smart to avoid getting stung! So what are the rules when it comes to baggage limits?
Each bag must fit in the overhead cabin of the plane. Generally, airlines have the policy that if you are travelling in a group of two or more you can spread the weight of your luggage across the bags as long as you don’t exceed the 40kg total weight allowance. If you go over the weight limit, you will get charged, although some airlines allow you to ‘buy’ more luggage space at check in. However remember that for any one person, there is a legal limit that a bag over 32kg cannot be accepted.
These are the baggage limits based on information at the time of writing based on the limits applied to adults travelling economy; more space may be issued to those in business class (lucky things!)
