For Europe Budget/Concept and Superior/Timeout trips, North America trips and South Pacific trips, luggage is restricted to one reasonable sized, non-expanding suitcase size approximately 29” × 20” × 10” (73cm x 50cm x 25cm) with the maximum weight of 20 kilos (44lbs.) plus one small hand/day bag that can go on the coach with you. No metal frame backpacks please, their bulky shape makes coach packing difficult and they are likely to damage other luggage.
Contiki reserves the right to refuse to accept larger suitcases on tour. However, on Camping tours, the maximum dimensions are 28” × 18” x 9” (70cm x 45cm x 23cm) with a maximum weight of 20 kilos (44lbs).
On South Pacific trips which include the Flotilla Sailing and/or 4-wheel drive trips, a small bag suitable for the extremely limited luggage space is required. Your regular luggage will be stored at this time.
On European ski packages and New Zealand trips with a ski option, you may bring one pair of skis and ski boots.
For trips to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands - we highly recommend a backpack or average sized duffle bag. Due to luggage limitations, we will not take any oversized suitcases or metal framed backpacks, however, we strongly recommend an internal frame pack. Alternatively, you can bring a smaller bag to pack for Galapagos, leaving your main suitcase at the hotel in Guayaquil to collect on return.
For Latin America, Asia & other regions which have internal flights included in the itinerary, luggage weight restrictions must be strictly adhered and Contiki is not responsible for any airline imposed excess baggage fees you may need to pay.
Note: Baggage is carried at the owner’s own risk and baggage insurance is strongly recommended.
