HELP. Luggage!!

8 Apr 2011 Explorer1150214 asked


I am travelling to Europe in may and am having trouble with luggage restrictions.

I have found a bag with the dimensions:
71 x 41 x 36
Contiki require:
73 x 50 x 25
Both equal 148.
On here I found a comment that said that as long as they ended up the same it was ok. I called contiki (had trouble understanding the consultant) to check this and they said no it has to be exact

I am really confused!! I can't find a bag with the exact same!!!!HELP!

    In the past they have not been strict with size. However, from the previous post Contiki says they will be strict with the luggage size. My understanding is that the total size is what counts – so you would be ok.
    But in the end it will depend on the contiki reps who measure your bag. For that you would probably get the best answer from the reps at the contiki basement in London. Not sure what the phone number is though.
