Travel Expert Reveals 5 Ways to Get Around Checked-Bag Fees

June 22, 2015 Aviation No Comments Email Email

Airlines are raking in record profits in part from checked-bag fees. Meanwhile an international airline trade association is seeking to decrease the size of carry-on bags by 21 percent. As a result travelers will continue to experience more hassles with luggage than ever as they fly this summer.

However, Russell Hannon, the ultra-economical travel expert, finds that totally unacceptable. He is coming to travelers’ rescue by offering a handful of doable ways to bypass pesky surcharges and fees.

Hannon’s five ways for getting around checked-bag fees include:

  1. Leave your carry-on and suitcase at home. Outsmart airlines by wearing your luggage with a luggage jacket.
  2. Pay for your flight with an airline-affiliated credit card that offers a free checked-bag benefit.
  3. Fast track your way to preferred status to get free checked-bag benefits.
  4. Purchasing a business or first-class ticket often entitles you to a free checked bag.
  5. Only fly on airlines that do not charge fees for checked bags.
