[AD] A few years ago, it was fashionable to tote what you owned in a carry-on bag. But things have changed and checking in luggage seems to be gaining momentum. This article looks at the reasons why it is better to check in luggage rather than carry them on the plane.

1. Getting around is much easier
The reason why people get tempted to carry their bags on the plane is to avoid the fees charged by airlines. But travellers have discovered that checking bags allows them more freedom. They don't have to tot a bunch or luggage around the airport. You can imagine how it will feel like if you were to visit the bathroom three times toting your suitcase. If the luggage is a few pounds heavy, it will make it difficult for you to move around. The inconvenience it will cause is expensive compared to the few dollars you would part with. Also, think of a situation where you have layovers. You will need to run to the next flight. Figure out how difficult it is to do this with bags that weigh a few hundred pounds.

2. It allows you to carry as much as you want
When you check in your luggage, you will be certain that you will reach your destination with your belongings so you don’t have to go shopping upon arrival. How it will be transferred from one plane to another will not be part of your business. It gives you a chance to carry as much as you want but it is important to check with each airline to find out the costs associated with checking large bags. Doing so will ensure that you don’t have to worry about anything if you have enough money to pay the fees. Carrying stuff from abroad is fun and enjoyable. But what scares most people who would love carry more stuff is the inconvenience it causes on the plane. But when you check in your bags, you pass the burden of loading and unloading to the carrier. It makes carrying items stress-free and enjoyable. If the items are unique, you get a chance to share them with many of your friends at home.

3. Reduces injury and stress
Carrying heavy luggage is likely to make your shoulder lug. It may also tweak your neck. When it happens, it causes pain and makes the journey less enjoyable. Carrying heavy luggage will fatigue your muscles and give you no time to rest. Also, you are likely to hit other travellers as you shove the bag around. If the bags are many, you get more stressed because you need to keep track of them. It means that you will be unkind to fellow passengers. In fact, it has been observed that people who carry a lot of bags will always be rude and argue a lot. All these troubles can be avoided by checking in the bag.

Of course, there are many other reasons that make checking in bags better. But the convenience it gives you makes the journey thrilling. Also, the fact that that it reduces stress makes travelling enjoyable.

  3. I keep a few basics in hand luggage, and check in the rest.

  4. I always check in a bag. I hate people flying with only carry-on bags, because then there is no room left in the overhead compartment for anything else and I have to have my shopping or camera bag or whatever with me all the time.
