Baggage Fees: Additional fees for baggage may apply. Please contact your airline or refer to its website for detailed information regarding their checked baggage policies.

We have no responsibility for these services, nor do we have the authority to make any warranty or representation regarding their standard. A request cannot be guaranteed. All bookings are subject to the terms and conditions and limitations of liability imposed by these travel service providers.
