Travel Press Card
When journalists, photographers or professional videographers are traveling, they always carry extra baggage such as photography equipment, cameras, lights, etc. Additional luggage also means additional costs, at least when the standard baggage allowance is exceeded, and the fees airlines charge for excess baggage can be exorbitant. With the IAPP Travel Press Card, this may be avoided in the future.
Most airlines allow luggage that is labeled as "journalistic equipment" to be checked for free, in addition to the regular baggage allowance. This is a major advantage for journalism professionals, who need their equipment at all times. The Travel Press Card makes excess baggage fees a problem of the past.
