Excess Luggage Tip

Whilst at the gym today I chatted to an acquaintance about holidays and travel. He told me an anecdote about checking in luggage at the airport which could be helpful:-
  • Approach check-in desk with luggage
  • When requested, lift and slide case on to conveyor-belt
  • Leave a few inches overhanging at your side in order that case is not completely on belt
  • When clerk activates conveyor-belt, keep an eye on digital weight display to see weight increasing by a few kilos!
I always weigh my case on digital scales at home anyway; however this could be helpful if you're homeward-bound and worried that you might be close to the limit - which could well be 20 kilos on some charter flights.
