A - Each passenger is permitted to bring one standard size piece of luggage (not to exceed 50lbs) to be stored under the coach and one small piece of luggage (without wheels) to be placed in the overhead luggage storage. Of course, there is plenty of room on board our coaches, so chartering parties needing more space are welcome to bring additional items.
