Let’s face it, figuring out baggage fees can be complicated.
We’re willing to bet a large majority of people show up at the airport without a clue as to what their baggage is going to cost. It’s a tad simpler if you’re consistently flying one carrier but for those travelers who fly multiple carriers, it’s easy to get your lines crossed!
Why does it have to be so difficult?
Well, to start, each airline has a slightly different baggage policy based on a multitude of parameters including dates of travel, class of travel, route of travel, etc. Add on excess fees for additional baggage, overweight and oversized pieces and you’ve got a recipe for disaster.
The stress of purchasing tickets and getting through the airport can be lessened (significantly) if you’re prepared. That’s why we’ve collected baggage fee guidelines for over 50 of the most popular airlines worldwide.
Hot Tip: We’ve also published guides on carry-on size charts as well as checked bag allowances and sizes.

We’ve also included a brief section on exclusions, waivers, and tips on avoiding these fees. For example, have mileage status or a co-branded credit card? You may be in luck…
Lastly, it’s important to remember baggage fees are subject to change at any time and many airlines update their policies frequently. That being said, we do our best to present you with the most up-to-date information we can.
