Luggage Allowance


ASI Tours luggage allowance is one suitcase and one carry-on bag per tour member.  The size and weight maximum are as follows:

Your carry-on luggage should not exceed 41 linear inches, measured by adding length + width + height and weigh no more than 15 lbs.  It must easily fit in the overhead or under the seat in front of you on the aircraft as well as on the motor coach.  

Liquids Rule. You are allowed to bring a quart-sized bag of liquids, aerosols, gels, creams and pastes in your carry-on bag and through the checkpoint. These are limited to travel-sized containers that are 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) or less per item. 

Please see for any questions you have. 

Check-in luggage is restricted to 61 linear inches which is measured by length + height + width.  Your maximum allowance without incurring excessive weight charges from the airlines is 50 lbs.  ASI TOURS is not responsible for overweight luggage.

ASI TOURS LLC is not responsible for additional luggage, overweight luggage or lost luggage.

You will be provided with ASI TOURS luggage tags to put on your check-in and hand carry luggage as identifiers.


Carry-on baggage

To ensure your travel is comfortable and safe, it's important that your carry-on baggage complies with our requirements of carriage. Please use a TSA approved lock and be aware of TSA rules for your carry-on and check in luggage.  

Things to know

Your carry-on baggage must:

  • fit under the seat in front of you or in an overhead locker
  • not exceed the carry-on baggage allowances
  • not include any dangerous goods unless permitted for carriage.

If your baggage meets the above requirements, but we reasonably believe it's not safe to be included as carry-on baggage, we may require you to check it in.

It’s up to you to ensure your baggage doesn’t exceed the allowance and you’re able to lift your bag into the overhead locker. If your bag is too heavy or too large to fit safely on-board, you’ll need to check it in. 

Carry-on baggage allowances

Carry-on baggage allowances on Qantas and QantasLink operated flights are as follows:

Australian domestic (except Dash 8 services)

All classes, one piece up to 22lbs per piece.

1 x 45in bag = 22in + 9in + 14in

Dash 8 services

All classes, one piece up to 15lbs.

    1 x 41in bag = 19in + 9in + 13in

In addition to your carry-on baggage allowance, you may also carry on-board one small personal item such as a handbag, laptop computer, overcoat, small camera, a reasonable amount of reading material or a small amount of duty-free goods (where permitted).

When packing your carry-on baggage:

  • Ensure you take essential medication and prescriptions on-board with you in your carry-on.
  • Keep it as light as possible as there can be considerable distances to walk at some airports and space inside the cabin is limited.
  • If you're carrying fragile or valuable items, ensure they are appropriately packed.

Liquids, aerosols and gels (LAGs), powders and hypodermic needles

When departing from any Australian international airport (on international or domestic flights), all liquids, aerosols and gels (LAGs) must be screened. LAGs such as toiletries are required to be 100mls or less and must be displayed within a clear resealable plastic bag and screened at the checkpoint.

When transiting at Australian international airports (Adelaide, Brisbane, Cairns, Darwin, Gold Coast, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney) you're permitted to take duty free LAGs purchases on-board your next international flight after they have been cleared at the screening checkpoint within the airport.

You'll also need to present any forms of powders you may be travelling with in your carry-on baggage. There are no restrictions on the carriage of organic powder materials such as baby formula, protein powder and most cosmetics. However inorganic powders, which include salt, sand, some talcum products, must not exceed 350ml in volume or 350g in weight. Other powders exempt from the restriction include medical or therapeutic products and cremated remains (ashes).

Duty free LAGs and powders need to have been purchased at an airport retail outlet or on-board an inbound international flight and must be contained within secure, tamper-evident bags (STEBs) and accompanied by a proof of purchase receipt.

Note that despite passing through Australian transit screening points, LAGs and powders may be confiscated at other overseas airport transit screening points. For more information visit:


When travelling to the United States with a connecting flight, you'll be permitted to carry liquids in excess of 100ml in your carry-on baggage, provided they were purchased in duty-free shops and placed in STEBs.

Liquids that can't be screened and cleared will not be allowed to remain in your carry-on baggage. This may include liquids in opaque, ceramic, or metallic bottles, or other containers that cannot be effectively scanned.

If you need to travel with a hypodermic needle, you'll be required to declare it at the airport screening point.

Prohibited inflight travel accessories                                                                                                                                                     

To ensure the safety and comfort of all passengers, it is prohibited to use inflight travel accessories and devices which: 

  • attach to aircraft seats; 
  • are inserted between seats; or
  • otherwise block access to seat rows or aisles.

When in use, these devices have the potential to impede access to seats and aisles, damage aircraft seats and fixtures, and block access to emergency equipment. 

Examples of prohibited inflight accessories include, but are not limited to, inflatable cubes, bed boxes, and leg hammocks. This list is not exhaustive, and the decision to permit use of any other device rests with the cabin crew,
