www.dealchecker.co.uk Launch ‘Weigh to Go’ App

Check Baggage Weight on a Smart Phone Before You Check In At The Airport

PRLog - Apr. 2, 2014 - Travel price comparison website www.dealchecker.co.uk (http://www.dealchecker.co.uk) is pleased to announce the launch of their very first mobile app. Known as ‘Weigh-to-go,’ this app enables travellers to check their baggage meets the weight limits set by an airline via a smart phone or mobile device, before they check-in.

Perfect for avoiding excess baggage charges, this app is free to download from the dealchecker  website, for more details or to download it now see www.dealchecker.co.uk (http://www.dealchecker.co.uk) or go to your app store.

Mark Attwell, Managing Director at dealchecker comments "dealchecker is committed to helping travellers save money, in any way we can. We hope that with this innovative piece of technology passengers can now use their mobile phone as a sensitive set of luggage scales, helping dealchecker’s save hundreds of pounds in excess luggage charges."

Baggage limits vary enormously between airlines. Ryanair has a hand baggage limit of 10kg and a standard check-in bag can weigh up to 15kg. British Airways meanwhile allow weights of up to 23kg for both cabin bags and checked-in luggage. Excess baggage charges soon add up; easy JZet charges £11 per kg at the airport, whilst Flybe charges £10 per kg.

This app is an essential tool in any cost-savvy traveller's mobile device. No more balancing suitcases on the bathroom scales, or waiting nervously to find out if you need to start re-distributing the weight in your bags, at the check-in desk for all to see.

The app interface is easy to use. The user simply enters the airline name, places the phone or mobile device on the floor or a hard flat surface. Next place the bag on the phone or mobile device. After a few moments the easy-to-use interface will register the weights and advise whether the bag is over the specified weight limit or not.

The app was developed in-house by dealchecker’s skilled technical team. For larger pieces of luggage a tablet tends register more accurate results. For more details on the app or to download it to your mobile device see www.dealchecker.co.uk,  google play, or itunes app store.
