When you travel abroad, the airline you fly with will set a weight allowance for your luggage, which on average is 20kg. When you plan to be overseas for a prolonged time, this weight is often not adequate enough for the passenger’s needs. Any additional belongings you want to take that exceed this limit are then classed as excess baggage, whether this is two suitcases of clothes, a single box of treasured possessions or a set of golf clubs…anything!

Cost of Excess Baggage

As with the permitted baggage weight, charges for any excess baggage are set and charged entirely at the discretion of the airline. You have the opportunity to pay a fixed rate and add on an additional suitcase before you fly, although this is not always an option and the weight of the extra bag is limited. Any bags that are not pre-paid for or bags that exceed the authorised weight will then face excess baggage fees. These are commonly charged per kilogram of extra weight and are known to be rather extortionate.
