PolskiBus.com operates a fair and open luggage policy, with no hidden charges. Passengers should refer our detailed Terms and Conditions for full details of our Luggage Policy. Brief guidelines on luggage are presented below. PolskiBus.com may refuse to carry luggage which does not adhere to these guidelines or our Terms and Conditions.
Passengers are advised that PolskiBus.com will accept, free of charge, up to two pieces of luggage per passenger:
(a) One piece of luggage weighing up to 20kg and no bigger than a standard sized suitcase which will be transported in the luggage compartment (“Main Luggage”)
(b) One small piece of luggage to be taken on board the bus, in a size allowing it to be easily placed under the seat or on the shelf located above the Passenger’s seat (“Hand Luggage”). The Hand Luggage should not block easy movement by the remaining passengers.
Passengers wishing to travel with more luggage than included in their Luggage Allowance may have items refused or off-loaded, depending on the availability of space.
Each piece of Main Luggage placed in the luggage compartment must be marked by the Passenger with a luggage label. A luggage label will be handed out by the driver or a member of PolskiBus.com staff on boarding, together with a Luggage Receipt which should be retained by the passenger for the duration for the trip. Make sure you keep the Luggage Receipt in a safe place as you will need it to reclaim your luggage at your destination.
At Your Destination
As your stop, the driver or a member of PolskiBus.com staff will hand out luggage to a passenger who possesses a Luggage Receipt, but is not obliged to verify whether the individual presenting the Luggage Receipt is authorised to collect the luggage.
