Traveling with us soon? Here's some more info for your trip and packing list.
Are you signed up for a trip? If so there are some things you need to be thinking about before you leave and we have listed a lot of the information you may need on this page. Obviously, if you have any questions that are not answered here, please contact us by phone at 1.888.506.1276.
Flying your destination
We recommend that you bring any medications/important items that you need in your carry-on. In the rare situation that your baggage gets lost in transit, we want you to have these important items available. Please bring a list of all your prescriptions of medications as well, in case they do go missing while on tour. This is just a precaution mind you but we like to prepare for everything.
Each person is allowed 1 bag (measurements: 62 linear inches: length + width + height) weighing LESS than 50 pounds. If this is an issue please notify us ASAP. Note: Weight is more important that overall size; if your checked bag is over 50 pounds you may have to pay extra for checking it.
In your checked bag you may bring:
Clothes, liquids (of any size and consistency), sharp items (razors), personal items, etc. *If you have any questions regarding what you can or cannot bring please let us know beforehand. We recommend liquids be placed in plastic bags in case they do explode in flight.
Carry-on baggage and personal item
Each person is allowed 1 ‘carry-on’ item (measurements: 9 x 14 x 22 and 35 pound maximum) and 1 ‘personal item’ (a purse, computer, brief case, small tote, etc). Liquids must be in bottles of 3 ounces or less and be able to be put in 1 quart sized baggy. In your carry on baggage you may NOT bring: Sharp items (razors, knives, etc.), flammable items
We will pass through security together and proceed to the gate together. As we go through security all liquid bags, shoes, coats, carry on baggage, computers, phones and metal items must be passed through the x-ray machine as we go through security at the airport terminal. Please remove these items from your carry-on bags and set them in the supplied trays on the conveyor belt. Keep your boarding pass in your hand as you pass through security. Some people may be asked to participate in a full body scan; this is a new regulation and is completely safe, please comply with any requests made by the TSA security members to make our departure as easy as possible.
