These days, tacked-on fees for airline travel can cost more than the actual ticket. Airlines charge between $15 and $35 for the first bag on domestic flights; $25 and up for the second.

But with planning, it’s possible to escape paying for checked bags. Here are a few strategies to consider, from The New York Times’ business travel pages:

  • Fly JetBlue, which gives you the first bag free, or Southwest, which gives you two.
  • Check your credit card policy. For example, American Express recently introduced a travel rewards card—the Blue Sky Preferred Credit Card—that offers travelers an annual $100 allowance to cover checked baggage, in-flight meals and other fees on any airline.
  • Choose a hotel that will pick up the tab. InterContinental Hotels Group recently ran a promotion that reimbursed to guests up to $50 in checked luggage fees.
