With people starting to book their holiday travel and airlines continuing to increase their fares due to gas prices, it is more important than ever for travelers to pay close attention to the airlines' various baggage fees and limits.  

Research shows that more and more airlines have instituted fees for the quantity and weight of passenger luggage.  However, not all airlines fees are consistent, which makes booking your flight and calculating your total air fare (ticket and baggage fees) difficult.  

Passengers must not just pay close attention to airline fees but also how they pack for their travels.  In some cases, it may be best to pay a little more for a ticket and travel on an airline that doesn't have strict baggage fees.  For a look at how the major airlines measure up, visit the Tip Section of my website ( for a detailed comparison chart of the top airlines baggage fees.

Here are a few recommendations for packing light and reducing your luggage needs:
•Ship holiday gifts before departing to and from your destination
•Pack kids together versus allowing each child to have their own suitcase
•Pack backpacks for children so they have their own carry-on bags
•Wear or carry your heavier items, such as jackets or boots, on the plane with you
•Plan on layering your clothes, which is space efficient and will help you dress for the weather
