Baggage Allowances

Most of our tour & cruise packages allow one checked bag per person, not to exceed 44 pounds, and one carry-on bag per person, which must fit in an overhead bin or under a seat (approximately 18" x 10" x 8"). Certain packages may have additional restrictions depending on the airline and limitations of the motorcoach, ship, etc. Specific baggage allowance information for each package will be listed on the FAQs tab of the package page and in your final documents.

See the list below for baggage information for our various airline parters, including limits for carry-on and checked baggage and excess baggage charges. Note that the baggage allowances for some airlines may be greater than the allowances for our packages.

If you exceed the baggage limits, you may be subject to excess baggage charges assessed by the airlines and/or the land operator. Also, if space is very limited in your transport vehicle, excess bags may have to be left in storage with the land operator. If you have any questions, please contact us or the airline directly.

TOURS TO CUBA: Each passenger may bring one piece of checked-in luggage and one carry-on, totalling 44 pounds for both. Anything over 44 pounds will be subject to a $2 per pound overage fee. If you are checking a second bag, you will be charged $20 plus $2 per pound for its total weight. Your carry-on luggage should not exceed 22" x 14" x 9". Your carry-on luggage should fit under your seat or in the overhead compartment. In addition to your carry-on, you may also have one personal item, such as a camera or purse.
