How to Get Free Checked Baggage on Major U.S. Airlines

4.) Take Advantage of Special Circumstances

If you are traveling under a special circumstance, sometimes your baggage fees will be waived.

Special circumstances usually include:

  • Military personnel
  • Travelers with disabilities
  • Travelers with strollers
  • Your destination

Each airline has their specific list of special circumstances. Your best bet is to check with each company before you fly.
