Handy Travel Tools: The Luggage Calculator
We’ve probably all been guilty of over-packing from time to time. Sometimes you just really need that extra three pairs of shoes or that extra bottle of sun cream just in case. But unless you’re positively bathing in money, it’s generally best to try and cut back a little if you possibly can – as those airport baggage charges are expensive! Luckily, a rather snazzy little invention called iflybags.com is on hand to help you calculate exactly how much you can take.
iflybags.com has a couple of great tools that allow you to check baggage allowances and understand the exact costs of your baggage fees. This means you can figure out exactly what you can take from home, and won’t have to worry about it at the airport!
You’ll now be able to scale back your stuff before you go, safe in the knowledge that clever iflybags knows what its talking about! Do you really need those gold platforms anyway?
itflybags can also tell you about more specialists items; want to bring your guitar? How about your sports gear or hang gliding equipment? It can tell you the airlines’ policies towards these items – think of it as your trusty, very knowledgeable travel buddy.
For example, if you were flying BA, you’d know that hang gliding equipment does not qualify for check-in but musical instruments do.
We think iflybags is definitely on to something – I for one will never again be caught walking onto a plane wearing every piece of clothing I own! Try them out for yourself here.
