Hotels Offer to Pay for Baggage Fees

Every week, one of the major airlines seems to create a new fee, or simply decides to add on an extra charge to one of their existing fees. Luckily, however, a few hotel chains are looking to help travelers foot some of the bill.

InterContinental Hotels Group, which runs 4,600 hotels worldwide including Holiday Inn and Staybridge Suites hotels, is now running a promotion where they will reimburse customers up to $50 for any baggage fees that come with you on your trip.

The deal started Aug. 16 and applies to any hotel visit between Sept. 1 and Dec. 30 this year. However, the deal only applies to weekend stays of two consecutive nights and you must book your stay with a Visa card. According to their site, customers are limited to being refunded for the cost of one roundtrip baggage fee per weekend stay.

Still, when you consider that checking one bag on a flight now costs as much as $25 on some airlines and Spirit actually charges $45 just for carry-on luggage, any help at all is appreciated.

You can find out more information about the deal and book a hotel on InterContinental's website.
