Here's how to pack for a trip without blowing a hole in your budget: Avoid hidden baggage fees, make lists, and say "no" to travel-size items.
The airlines may be cracking down on carry-on bags, as Yahoo Travel reported earlier this week in a story on new baggage restrictions from Airfare Watchdog. The San Francisco Chronicle travel editor has launched a hashtag campaign #CarryOnShame, which has gone viral. As someone who follows the rules (and usually checks her bags), I applaud Hilton’s campaign and chimed in on Good Morning America, which ran a report on his clever campaign.
Wouldn’t it be great if you could travel bag-free? There would be no bag-check lines, no waiting for luggage, no lost luggage, and best of all, no restrictions. Well, it is entirely possible. And traveling with your beloved bicycle? That is possible, too. How? Ship it.
