A Travel Hack Goes Viral In Dubai As A Passenger Dodges Extra Baggage Fees


The Dubai community is completely mindblown by this one passenger who managed to avoid paying extra for her overweight luggage.

This is a serious LIFE HACK: take notes!

The Filipina passenger, Gel Rodriguez from Davao City in the Philippines layered on 2.5kg worth of clothes to avoid paying excess baggage fees. The passenger was told by the check-in staff that her luggage was too heavy and weighed 9kg which exceeded the 7kg weight limit and that she had to pay extra to check-in the suitcase.

Gel Rodriguez then bamboozled the staff… and all of the internet when she wore on ALL the extra clothing items from her suitcase before boarding her flight. Doing this got her suitcase weight down to 6.5kg.

The Filipina passenger shared her BOSS pic wearing the layers of clothes at the arrivals and captioned it to say #ExcessBaggageChallengeAccepted!

A pic to show that she MADE IT!

This post instantly went viral where the internet was super impressed with her travel hack, the post was shared over 20,000 times.


This bold picture of the traveller received a ton of appreciation.
