No digital hand scale, no bathroom scale? You’re probably wondering ‘Where can I weigh my luggage?’. Turns out, you’ve got a few options.
Most airports have scales that can be used for a small fee. However, if you do weigh in over, your fate is pretty much sealed at this stage. Best to be in the know more than a few hours before lift-off.
Supermarkets are a far better option, particularly for those in the US but also in many European countries too. You’ll often find an antiquated-looking scale hiding in the corner of your trusted supermarket chain. While these are generally intended for human use, there’s no shame in being opportunistic. Grab suncream, stock up on holiday reading material and weigh your luggage in one tactical swoop.
For those staying in a hotel, it’s commonplace for the concierge to have a digital hand scale or large scale on hand. Take advantage.
