Ways to Save on Airline Baggage Fees

27Jun09

As baggage fees have skyrocketed, it is becoming more and more desirable to pack your vacation supplies into suitcases which are as light as possible. There are several options available to conserve on space. For example, many people rent a car when on vacation and stop at a local store for items like shampoo, soap, and other toiletries.

Here are a few other options that don’t involve renting a car (mainly for U.S. destinations):

  • If your vacations are mainly in Orlando, Owner’s Locker will store items for you and keep them in a climate-controlled storage facility. Whenever you visit, the purple van will drop off the storage container at your resort or hotel.
  • Ship items from home. You can easily look up the address for your hotel, and shipping items through the postal service or UPS can be cheaper than the additional-bag fees. Be sure to plan enough time so that the shipment will arrive before you get there.
  • Order items online to be sent to your hotel. Alice.com has good prices and free shipping (UPS 3 day shipping) on grocery-type items.

What other money-saving ideas do you have?

  1. Hi! I understand this is kind of off-topic but I needed to
    ask. Does managing a well-established website such as
    yours require a large amount of work? I am completely new to running a blog but I do write in my journal everyday.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can share my experience and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!
