People are coming up with ways all the time to avoid paying anymore extra fees when they take a trip and this woman is no exception.

She posted a picture to Facebook, showing herself posing in her outfit with what looked like at least three tops, two pairs of trousers and four cardigans. The post was shared over 20,000 times.
