Baggage Allowances

For baggage allowances specific to your package, please see everything you need to know before you go or your final documents.

In general, our tours & packages allow per person: one checked bag, not to exceed 44 pounds; one personal item such as a purse or camera bag; and one carry-on bag, which should fit under your seat or in the overhead compartment. If your trip includes domestic flights within your destination and/or travel by motor coach, your carry-on should also fit should also fit under your seat or in the overhead bins on those flights or coaches.

See the list below for baggage policies for our various airline partners, including limits for carry-on and checked baggage and excess baggage charges. Our baggage allowances may be less than those for your international flights, as in many cases, we must also consider space limitations on our motor coaches and/or on domestic flights within your destination. If you exceed the baggage limits, you may be subject to excess baggage charges levied by the airlines and/or by Friendly Planet. If you have any questions, please contact us or the airline directly.
