    hey liz! i messaged them on facebook with the same question and they said this

    Hey Amy, that shouldn’t be a problem since it’s smaller in other areas. The dimensions we have slight flexibility on but we are quite strict with the weight. Just need to keep it under 20 kilos for the whole trip (in other words leave home quite under 20 so you have room to buy souvenirs ). Do you know which tour you’re going to do? Is it your first big overseas trip? Must be getting excited if you’re already thinking about packing! ~Sam.

    so i think its all fine :)

    Contiki cares more about the weight of your suitcase as long as it inst way over the length restrictions
