We strongly recommend that you travel with one piece of checked luggage, one carry-on bag and one personal item. Airline checked bags are typically limited to a total dimension of 62 inches (158 cm) by adding length + width + height (example: 26"+26"+10" = 62"), and a maximum weight of 50 lbs (23kg). Many airlines apply charges for checked bags. Each passenger may carry one piece of carry-on luggage, the combined dimensions of which should not exceed 45 inches (115cm), which should fit in overhead bins or under the seat.
World Spree is not responsible for checked bag fees, excess luggage or weight charges levied by an airline. If your luggage is lost or damaged by the airlines, a baggage claim form MUST be filed with the carrier before leaving the airport. We recommend that you use brightly colored luggage tags, straps or other identifiers to help you locate your luggage upon arrival or to describe it in the event that it is lost. For more information on airline baggage allowances, please find and click on the airline operating your itinerary.
Guidelines on what to pack for your specific tour will be sent to you with your final documentation materials. We also suggest you refer to the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) for helpful tips on how to prepare for your journey.
All checked luggage will be screened at the airport prior to being placed on an aircraft. In order to make your check-in process go smoothly, we offer the following list of suggestions recommended by the TSA:
- Leave bags unlocked to avoid the potential need for them to be opened forcibly due to inspection. Should you wish to lock your baggage, you MUST use a TSA recognized lock, which allows TSA screeners to open and re-lock your bags for security screening.
- Do not pack food or beverages in checked bags. Pack footwear on top of other contents. Put personal belongings in clear plastic bags to reduce chances of a TSA screener having to handle them and to spread them out.
- Do not wrap gifts. They may have to be opened for inspection.
- Screening equipment will damage film, so place all film in your carry-on bags.
- Pack scissors, pocket knives and other sharp items in checked bags, never carry on.
- All liquids, gels, and aerosols must be in 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) or smaller containers. These items must be stored in a clear, quart-size, zip-top plastic bag.
- Please see the TSA for exceptions and additional tips, regulations, and general information.
