Can't fit all your stuff into a carry-on bag tiny enough to conform to most major airlines' size restrictions? There are two easy ways to avoid having to pay a fee for checked baggage:

2) Pack all of your stuff in a guitar case instead of a suitcase. Airlines are required to allow passengers to carry on instruments without charging additional fees.
