Are You Sure Your Carry-On Luggage Meets the Size Limits?

Traveling with carry-on luggage is a great way to save time and money. But before you head to the airport, make sure your bag meets the size limits set by the airline. Not doing so could result in hefty fees or even having to check your bag at the gate. Here’s what you need to know about carry-on luggage size limits.

Know Your Airline’s Restrictions

Each airline has its own restrictions when it comes to carry-on luggage size. Before you purchase a bag, make sure you know what size is allowed by your airline. Most airlines allow bags that measure up to 22 inches long, 14 inches wide, and 9 inches deep. However, some airlines have stricter requirements, so be sure to double check before you buy a bag.

Measure Your Bag

Once you’ve purchased your carry-on luggage, measure it to make sure it meets the size requirements of your airline. If your bag is too big, consider buying a smaller one or checking it at the gate instead of paying an extra fee for an oversized bag.

Pack Smartly

If your bag is just slightly too big for the size limit, there are ways to make it fit without having to buy a new one. Make sure you pack smartly and use all available space in your bag by rolling up clothes and stuffing small items into shoes or other pockets. This will help reduce bulk and make it easier for your bag to fit into the overhead bin or under the seat in front of you.

Traveling with carry-on luggage can be a great way to save time and money when flying. But before you head off on your next trip, make sure that your carry-on luggage meets the size limits set by your airline. Knowing these restrictions and packing smartly can help ensure that you don’t end up paying extra fees or having to check your bag at the gate.
