If this information is not provided at the required time, we cannot be responsible for any failure to provide the Service.
Collection and Bag Acceptance
All participating passengers must be checked in online (or mobile device) with the airline prior to Bag acceptance.
All participating Passengers must be present during Bag collection with their valid boarding pass available for presentation, proof of check inn and their identification document or passport (or such other identification as may be accepted by the Partner Airline) used during the online check-in process.
In the event the Passengers travel together in one group (on the same airline reference number for the group), only one of the group of Passenger needs to be present with all the other Passengers documents as stipulated above.
If a participating Passenger fails to be in attendance during Bag acceptance, or fails to produce a valid boarding pass, a valid identification document or a valid passport (or such other identification as may have been accepted by the Partner Airline or us), then the Passenger will not be eligible for participation in the Service and as such will be offered the ability to have their Bag/s be Repatriated.
Only Bags within a participating Passengers' allowance with the relevant Partner Airline can be accepted for the Service. Please see below links to details of the relevant Partner Airlines general rules regarding baggage allowance that applies to your ticket:
In addition, certain Partner Airline operates a baggage pooling policy (certain airline allow Passengers to give one Passenger all the Bags and to check inn the Bags under his/her name) which may apply to your Booking.
If your journey includes a flight with another airline, please note that their baggage allowance and policies may differ. It is the passenger’s responsibility to ensure the size and weight of their bags are within their booked allowance. For health and safety reasons we cannot transport bags over 32kg.
If, in relation to a given Bag, we are unable to provide the Service for reasons not within our control (including, without limitation, in respect of Bags Ineligible for the service), or the Passenger opts (after making the Booking) not to take the Service but does not cancel our standard Service in accordance with these Terms, we will provide the standard Service and will not be obliged to make any refund of the Booking fee for that Bag.
If, in relation to a given Bag, we are unable to provide the Service for reasons within our control, we will notify you that this is the case and instead provide the standard Service in that the Bag will be placed on the next available flight.
Arrangements with Partner Airlines
We (not the relevant Partner Airline) provide the Service.
These Terms do not in any way affect the standard terms and conditions of the relevant Partner Airline, which continue to apply to Passengers travelling with that Partner Airline.
