Default $$$$ AIRLINE CHARGES FOR LUGGAGE.

Those bottles of duty free rum and tee shirts can cost a bundle to get home.

Here is an artical from the Miami Hearld on charges from different airlines for luggage: 1st bag, 2nd bag, Over weight bags and Over size bags.

Travel is expensive.

Two medium checked bags that fall within the weight and size limits will cost you a lot less than one checked item that's over either limit.

Solution: Drink it all before returning home.

I've gone 10 days with just a carry-on. Of course, I used a laundromat during the course of my trip. Actually, I look up ahead of time the Post Offices within my destinations and actually mail my gifts (and dirty clothes) home. You would have to compare mail service with paying extra for heavy baggage, but sometimes it's worth it! One less bag to tote home. But alas, remember dirty clothes can smell, lol.

Throw a bottle of liquor in your carry-on, if it will fit. And then carefully 'stow' it on the airplane.

Happy Crusing!

Default luggage charges

It costs $15+/bag now on most airlines and that's assuming the airline doesn't lose it(like American did ours on a recent flight from Charlotte to Denver..............they put it on the wrong plane).

You can't take a large container of any liquid in your carry-on an a plane anymore. They might make you chug the whole bottle before you board.
More likely, someone in security will have a very pleasant evening after you are long gone...they will confiscate it.
