Preparing your baggage

We suggest you follow these simple tips when preparing your baggage for a journey:

  • baggage must be visibly and legibly marked with the details of the person travelling (full name and address);
  • label each item of baggage both outside and inside;
  • remove all old labels from previous journeys and the details of the owner of the luggage if different from the person travelling;
  • lock your baggage;
  • if possible, remove all straps and other attachments which could cause your baggage to get stuck or damaged during transport on the baggage conveyor (this applies in particular to backpacks); straps that cannot be removed should be suitably fastened or otherwise protected against damage;
  • do not carry valuable, delicate or fragile items in checked baggage (also known as hold baggage) since these may be damaged and baggage may be lost;
  • valuable items such as money, computers, cameras, mobile phones, jewellery, etc., and also medicines, important travel documents, keys and so on should be carried on the person or placed in hand baggage, in order to avoid additional inconvenience in the case of delayed baggage. The carrier accepts no liability for valuables placed in checked baggage in the case of delay or loss.
