# Luggage fees
Doesn't $10 Sound Better than $50, $100 or $150?
“Did you ever notice that the first piece of luggage on the carousel never belongs to anyone?” ~ Erma Bombeck. No one wants to arrive at the airport eager to get to their destination and find out that their luggage weighs more than what the airline allows. Airlines have a weight limit for checked-in luggage. The weight limit can be anywhere from 40 to 50 lbs depending on the airline. Their overweight baggage fees are steep. You might have to pay anywhere from $50 to $150 and that’s money you can use while at your destination.
