2. Your Bags Give You Away

People who aren’t good travelers often have overweight bags, which can cost you a fortune in fees and tend to slow the line of people waiting behind you. Study the weight limits on all the airlines on which you will travel and be sure you know how much you can put in your bag without being overweight. Don’t pack things you don’t need! Another giveaway that you haven’t got the fine art of travel down is that you ignore luggage carry-on rules. Be sure your shampoos and other toiletries aren’t above the allowable limit, because if not you may trigger a bag search and be forced to surrender anything that’s not allowed. Solution? Borrow or invest in luggage scale or purchase bags with built-in weighing systems. Be sure to study the carry-on limits and follow them.
