I am flying from Prague CZ to Sydney Australia using Qatar airways. I believe I will have extra baggage over the 30kg limit. I am unsure how much over I will be but probably 5-7kg and dont really have a way to calculate my baggage weight.

Should I purchase extra baggage now (they sell in 5-10 kg intervals) or wait till checkin desk, see if they flag me for being 5kg over and pay at checkin?

  • No airline I know overlooks 5kg. If it’s cheaper online, pay online. Otherwise wait till the airport. – user 56513 Jan 3 '19 at 14:26
  • If you have a bathroom scale, you can get a decent measurement by weighing yourself, weighing yourself holding your luggage, then subtracting. It works well with smaller bags, but could be difficult with a 30kg+ bag though. – Zach Lipton May 9 '19 at 20:14

I recommend purchasing it online.

If you know you are going to be over it is cheaper to purchase it online. They probably will weigh it.

Price per additional KG:

Online - 55 USD Offline - 70 USD
