What Kind of Travel Bag Should I Take on an Airplane?

If you fly Southwest, you don't need to worry much about your packing style. They don't charge extra for your first two checked bags. Most other airlines have baggage fees, and you can avoid them if you know how to pack. The key is understanding the difference between a personal item and a carry-on bag.

Avoid These Surcharges on Holiday Travel

If you plan ahead, you can pack your personal item like an extra travel bag. Here are a few bags an airline might consider as your personal item:

  • Satchel
  • Crossbody
  • Small backpack
  • Laptop bag
  • Diaper bag

That means your handbag doesn't usually count as a carry on. Pack it like a travel bag, and you might save yourself from paying extra for additional luggage. Here are our favorite deals on handbags today.
