Bag/Suitcase Size

6 Apr 2014 Jehan asked


I know in the FAQ it says that bags cannot be more than 20kg which they are strict on. I was just wondering how strict they are on size, as the suggest a bag around 73cm x 50cm x 25cm, whereas the bag I will be taking will be around 90cm H x 40cm W x 30cm D

    Honestly they dont care about size of your suitcase haha, i have been on 3 contikis now and they only weigh your bag once at the start and this is where they are strict, needs to be under 20kgs, i remember seeing people pull stuff out of their suitcases and then pack that stuff into there day bags to get under that weight limit, even though i dont know why they are starting out with 20kgs of luggage in the first place haha :/
    But you will be fine ;) Which tour are you going on?
