Luggage weight & size limits in North America

Last Updated: 4th Aug 2016

More Tour and Travel Advice for the USA and Canada


Contiki Tours in the USA and Canada have a luggage restriction of 1 × 20 kilogram (44lbs) bag and 1 x carry on bag. Any reasonable sized suitcase however is okay. Although your bags won’t be weighed, if your suitcase is too heavy then you will have to load and unload it on and off the bus yourself. (Workplace health and safety for your Driver)

On US tours it’s best to roughly stick to the 73cm x 50cm x 25cm (29″ × 20″ × 10″) and 20 kilogram (44lb) weight restriction.

On tours with included flights as part of the itinerary, you’ll need to make sure your luggage doesn’t exceed the weight restrictions imposed by airlines. Contiki is not responsible for any costs incurred for overweight luggage.
