Do you have any baggage limitations?

Due to space limitations on board the tour coach and because of health and safety issues relating to our employees, you are asked to keep luggage to one medium sized suitcase 20" x 28" and weighing no more than 18 kilos per person together with hand luggage which can be stowed safely under your seat on the coach. The only exception is when travelling on Continental holidays when we suggest the use of an overnight bag. to space limitations on board the tour coach and because of health and safety issues relating to our employees, you are asked to keep luggage to one medium sized suitcase 20" x 28" and weighing no more than 18 kilos per person together with hand luggage which can be stowed safely under your seat on the coach.
