Worried aboght luggage weight?

many JBRs and comments mention being limited by airline weights.Just wanted to let you all know we overshopped a "little" and sent back 38 KG of assorted treasures from Bali.we tried a couple of cargo places in Ubud,but ended up at the post office.They provide the boxesand any bubble wrap,help you pack and assist with the paperwork.Maximum of 20kg per box and it took 8 weeks to arrive delivered to our front door.38 KG cost us just under $150....much cheaper than excess baggage!

We don't have a problem with our luggage on the international leg of our return journey. It's when we hit the domestic sector.

The best tip I have ever had was to buy an extra seat at the cheapest price - you get an extra seat to stretch out on , and 23 kg of extra passenger luggage.

SO worth it.

I just worked out that 38kgs charged @ $15.00 per kg excess luggage $570.00.

Using the post office option, although a lot slower, is a good option.

I'll keep this in mind for our trip.
