Before packing for a trip, ask yourself if every item you put into your suitcase is absolutely necessary. Those extra baggage fees the airlines charge can really add up, so travel light and save.
Most airlines charge $25 for bags weighing over 50 pounds, $50 for bags weighing over 100 pounds and $80 for oversize bags.
Many airlines also charge an additional fee for bags. Some airlines charge up to $200 extra for seven or more bags. There are exceptions, however. Make sure you check with your airline or travel agent to find out about additional baggage costs before booking.
When you do book your flight, see if the travel agent has a hotel coupon or car rental coupon to assist with the savings.
