Each traveller is allowed to bring one reasonably sized main backpack, bag, or suitcase to be stored in the rear luggage compartment of the bus on travel days, with a maximum allowable weight of 23kg (50lbs) and maximum linear dimensions (Height + Width + Depth) of 158cm (62in). Backpacks are better than suitcases for optimizing storage space in the luggage compartment. It also makes it easier for you to carry upstairs in the hostels we use, none of which have elevators/lifts. In addition, each passenger may bring one “carry-on” item like a day pack or small bag, that will be carried in the passenger compartment of the bus.
NOTE: Moose reserves the right to refuse to accept luggage that exceeds our weight and/or size restrictions. If we choose to accept overweight or oversize luggage, we will charge a fee of $50 per bag for overweight/oversize pieces. Note that the decision to accept an overweight/oversize piece can only be made at departure because it depends on the combined weight and size of all travellers’ luggage. If your luggage is refused, you will need to make (and pay for) your own arrangements to ship or store your luggage, which may result in your missing departure that morning. You would then also need to make (and pay for) your own arrangements to catch up with the tour that afternoon or evening.
