What if my luggage is 1 kg overweight?

Here is something that must have happened to every traveler at least once – you have filled your suitcase to the last possible inch before departing for the airport and then find out your baggage is just a bit over the allowed weight during the check-in process. The panic that ensues is depicted by the agent informing a traveler that their luggage is 1 kg overweight as per the airline’s regulation. Now what? Are you the kind of person who, to begin with, is always in a hurry and gets even more overwhelmed when forced to organize things and get rid of some? Offer to carry for your friends and relatives the additional kilograms that seem to be overcharged for only 1 kg. Or take the risk of attempting to go through with your bag having occupied a lot of space without first seeking permission? This is something that happens to so many people and it is the last thing one wants when on a vacation especially when you do not know the policies and your choices. In this post, we will be discussing techniques on what you should do when your luggage is only slightly overweight by a maximum of 1 kg to avoid paying more, the unnecessary stress, and the struggles that come with air travel at the very start of your journey.
