For travelling from America to Europe these amounts are quoted in USD (CAD in Canada).

Low cost airlines:
Note: Most budget airlines apply for checked baggage fee as a surcharge. The fee is around € 20 in one direction but can vary widely depending on the airline. Refer to the low cost airline for more specific information.
What happens to my luggage, if the route includes different airlines?
If your whole trip is put on one ticket there is a partnership agreement between the airlines involved. This is needed to enable them to transfer your luggage and assist you in cases of flight irregularities. If traveling with one airline only, it takes full care of transportation of your luggage to the final destination. If your last flight is international and the next one domestic, generally you should need to get your luggage at the destination point of your international flights and pass the customs control before transiting to the domestic flight. This is including the United States and South Africa.
If you are traveling with several airlines and you have separate tickets for each one of them, you must always take care of your luggage at each airport yourself.
