Spring is in the air. And with warm weather comes weekend getaways. Nothing is more inconvenient than having to lug around a giant duffel bag or worse yet having to check a bag at the airport when you really only need a bag big enough for a weekend trip. With increasing airline fees, having a small carry-on bag is more important than ever.
If you’re jet-setting off to somewhere fabulous, here are a few things to consider regarding carry-on requirements. Don’t let airlines steep fees cut into your travel funds.
- The maximum size carry-on bag for most airlines is 45 linear inches (the total of the height, width, and depth of the bag).
- Most airlines allow for 1 carry on and 1 personal item (purse, briefcase, backpack, etc,)
- Be sure to check with the airline you are traveling with as restrictions may vary.
