Because dimensions of hand luggage can differ from airline to airline, knowing if your baggage is the right size is not as cut-and-dry as it once was. With our new tool, you can use our augmented reality technology to size up your bag before your trip – right from the KAYAK app.
Our new Bag Measurement Tool helps you calculate your bag’s size, letting you know if it’ll fit in the overhead bin (or not) before you get to the airport so you can confidently breeze through check-in.
How does it work? To measure your luggage, open a flight search in the KAYAK app and click “new bag measurement tool”. You’ll be prompted to scan the floor (this helps calibrate measurements) and then move your camera around the bag to capture its size. From there, KAYAK does the maths for you. The tool will alert you with the bag’s exact measurements so you know whether you can bring it on a flight as a carry-on, or if it needs to be checked in.
The tool compares all airlines’ baggage policies in one place as well, so you know if your bag will fit no matter which airline you’re flying with.
This is just another clever way we’re using innovative technologies to raise the bar on how you plan and manage your travel. Try it for yourself when you download the KAYAK app. Don’t have a trip planned yet? We can help with that too.
