How much baggage can I carry ?
There are several different sets of baggage allowance regulations in effect for international and regional flights. Baggage allowances can vary depending on which airline(s), class of service, and routing is used. Despite the information given here, you are urged to check with your booking agent for the exact baggage regulations pertaining to your specific itinerary.
Please be advised that baggage limits are adhered to very strictly on both international and domestic flights. Most domestic carriers have more restrictive baggage limitations than international carriers. On domestic flights, the baggage allowance is 30 kilograms (66 lbs.) per person for those traveling in economy class and 40 kilograms (88 lbs.) per person for those traveling in business class.
In case of a small plane being used for travel within India or Nepal, the maximum baggage allowance varies between 15 to 20 kilograms (33 lbs.) per person.
Any baggage in excess of airline limitations may be subject to substantial freight charges by the airline. These charges are the entire responsibility of the traveler. (Please be advised that some domestic airlines categorically refuse excess baggage. Also, payment of excess baggage charges on domestic flights within India and Nepal may not guarantee that the baggage is transported.)
Every piece of checked baggage should be locked and contain identification inside (as well as outside) stating your home address and phone number. In addition, do not pack valuable items (such as your camera and jewelry) in checked baggage. While every precaution will be taken with your baggage, Wind Horse Tours can not be held responsible for any damaged, lost, or stolen baggage or personal property; and we strongly recommend the purchase of adequate baggage insurance by each traveler.
Canned foods, knives, scissors, or other sharp objects that may be considered potentially dangerous should not be packed in your hand luggage. If you are carrying items of this nature, be sure that they are packed in your checked baggage.
