As holiday season approaches, many travelers seek ways to save on their vacation expenses, which can quickly add up. From flights to accommodations, every penny counts when planning a trip.

Tom Church, a bargain-hunting expert at LatestDeals.co.uk, has shared valuable insights on how to beat excess baggage charges with various airlines. With luggage fees often being a substantial part of travel expenses, knowing how to navigate them can make a big difference.

"One of the key ways to save money on your holiday is by choosing an airline with a generous baggage allowance," says Church. "This way, you’re not splashing out on sneaky extra luggage fees or having to leave essentials behind."

Being aware of your chosen airline's luggage policies is crucial. It could save you a substantial amount of money and frustration. Church advises thoroughly reviewing the inclusions in your ticket and carefully selecting an airline with a luggage allowance that suits your travel needs.

Here's a breakdown of baggage policies from some popular budget airlines:
