Excess Baggage Charges are a Burden
Excess Baggage charges are expensive. Airlines limit weight of a suitcase to 23 kgs after which they charge. Over 32 kgs the case won’t fly and must be forwarded as freight. If you travel to US it is more than likely you will shop. It is also likely you will shop more than you bargained for. Bargains are part of the US retail culture. Regardless of the exchange rates and you will find many things much cheaper than they are here in the UK.
Excess Baggage Charges differ per airline, but the general rule is the cheaper the ticket the more you will pay. Budget airlines or the economy tickets attract the most expensive charges. If its considered oversized hand carry not only will you get charged, but it will probably find its way to the hold.
