I’m just wondering, I have a hard shell type suitcase - is this allowed? I thought it would be ok but then some of the things I’ve read have confused me
It’s allowed, I took a hard shell suitcase on my Europe Uncovered tour July 2010
Hi Emily, just to let you know each person is allowed 1 item of standard size luggage (backpacks only on a EuroCamping trip) plus a day pack (and sleeping bag if on EuroClub or EuroCamping trip). The maximum weight of your main bag must not exceed 44lbs/20kgs. Size for all bags must not exceed 70cm x 45cm x 25cm. Due to strict weight regulations for coaches in Europe, passengers whose luggage exceeds 44lbs/20kgs will be asked to off load the excess on the departure morning.
We also request that passengers do not use hard-cover suitcases or hard-framed backpacks as these can get damaged under the coach and just as easily damage other passengers’ luggage.
Hope this information helps if you have any other questions, please just shout.
Ok this says yes…
and this says no…

If it helps, it is one of these suitcases http://www.luggageonline.com/product.cfm?product_ID=13823 the shell is plastic so I don’t see how it could damage other luggage?
The one I took was very similar to the one you have. Many other people on my tour had the same kind of thing and it wasn’t an issue
Excellent, I think I’ll just take it
