Due to the limitations of motor coach luggage compartments, all escorted and guided tour packages allow one piece of luggage per person and one carry-on bag. Excess luggage will be subject to charge of up to $100 per piece. Passengers who purchase independent packages which do not include motor coach travel are subject to the restrictions imposed by airlines. Virgin Vacations recommends traveling 'light' as there is generally no porterage included in independent programs, and passengers are responsible for carrying their own luggage to / from airports, piers, rail stations and hotels. Many airlines have begun to apply charges for a second checked bag. Please contact your airline or refer to its website for detailed information regarding your airline's checked baggage policies. Airline policies vary and may change at any time. Many airlines apply charges for checked bags. For a complete list of fees, please visit virgin-vacations.com/baggagefees.aspx. Virgin Vacations is not responsible for any excess luggage/ weight charges levied by an airline. The Travel Agent and/or Tour Operator, Virgin Vacations, shall not be held responsible for any damage to or loss of luggage/personal items. All damage/loss must be reported at time of incident and documented in writing by local authorities for submission to the insurance company. Any cost to retrieve luggage will be your responsibility and you should retain receipts to submit to your insurance provider.
