Our charter coaches have three luggage bays, with enough space for the luggage of all passengers. In addition to the luggage bays there are overhead compartments inside of the bus. Our shuttle buses do not have a dedicated space for luggage.

Please read over the contract carefully to ensure that all the information for you trip is accurate.
