Anyone who has packed for a trip before knows that you need at least 6,286 outfits for a 5 day holiday. I mean, what if it gets cold whilst you’re trying to relax in a tropical paradise?
Well, this woman seems to have packed a few extra items that gave the scales a nudge and came up with a hilarious way to save some money on excess baggage.
In a recent post on Facebook, Gel Rodriguez is seen sporting as much clothing as she could possibly put on at the airport, and man oh man did it give me the giggles.
When told that her suitcase weighed more than the airlines limit and excess baggage fess would apply, the crafty traveller decided to find a way to save her money. By taking out most of her clothing and wearing it all at the same time, Gel managed to reduce the weight of her baggage by 2.5kgs, taking it from 9kgs to 6.5kgs – that’s pretty well done if you ask me!
She captioned the photo with “when the airline staff at the check in counter said: “EXCESS NA PO KAYO, 7kg lang po allowed na hand carry.” me: NO PROBLEM! ????” *from 9kg to 6.5kg baggage ???? #ExcessBaggageChallengeAcc
Over 20,000 people have shared the image, and there are 700 plus comments. Some commenting on her genius idea, others saying they’ve seen it before and most, simply tagging a friend to have a bit of a giggle.
Though it’s not the first time a traveller has gone to extremes to avoid paying excess baggage costs, one man from the UK made his own coat which had enough space to store everything he would take in a carry on, including shoes, outfits and even toiletries!
Seeing photos like this make my day, what a funny woman!
