Luggage Scale Reviews – The Best Three
Airlines are imposing tighter restrictions on passenger luggage weight and size, and imposing hefty fees for bags exceeding the limits. A personal hand-held luggage scale allow travellers to check the weight of each case prior to check in at the airport, affording them the opportunity to repack and remove unnecessary items in privacy and avoid paying costly airline fees which range from £7.50 per kg to £30 per kg of excess weight.
