Free baggage allowance with airlines

Soon we will fly to Asia and I already monitor the tickets. The second question after the cost, I wonder about the baggage - now we got it more than we wanted, especially what goes in hand luggage. I have a huge photo backpack, in which there is a camera and lenses, so for the time being it is unclear to me to declare it as a “camera” or as a “hand luggage”.

In the post I will collect some information about the airlines that we may fly to Thailand.

In any case, before the flight, you need to callyour airline and clarify all the details. So many airlines had changes regarding free baggage allowance (they accepted new rules). And also because almost on all airline websites there is not a word about what a child can take with him to the salon if he flies without his seat and how many additional things (cameras, laptops, etc.) you can take with you salon adult.

I also recommend everyone to do baggage insurance, a very useful thing, I wrote about it in detail in this post.

Economy class.
Luggage: the sum of 3 dimensions up to 158 cm (in rare cases, 207 cm)
Hand luggage: 55x40x20 or the sum of three dimensions up to 115 cm.

Life hacking 1 - how to buy a good insurance

Choosing insurance is now unrealistically difficult, so to help all travelers, I compile a rating. To do this, I constantly monitor forums, study insurance contracts and use insurance by myself.

Life hacking 2 - how to find a hotel 20% cheaper

First, choose a hotel on Booking. They have a good offer base, but the prices are NOT the best! The same hotel can often be found 20% cheaper in other systems through the RoomGuru service.
