1. HOW MUCH BAGGAGE CAN I TAKE?
Baggage restrictions to Africa depend on the airline with which you are flying. This is usually one checked bag per person not weighing more than 20kg. Carry-on luggage is limited to one piece per person.
If you are flying on small charter aircraft within Africa, further restrictions will apply. Please check with Costco Travel for more information. Baggage guidelines will also be sent to you with your final documents.
For example, luggage restrictions on most Botswana safaris with light aircraft transfer flights is 20kg total in soft bags – including your hand luggage.
In addition, safari vehicles also have luggage restrictions, for example in Kenya and Tanzania there may be a limit of 15kg total in soft bags – including your hand luggage.
2. CAN I EARN FREQUENT FLYER MILES?
You may be able to earn frequent flyer points on some of our flights. Once you have your air tickets booked, please advise Costco Travel of your frequent flyer program so we can advise you if points are available and will assist in providing the information to the airline. Remember to keep all boarding passes and copies of your tickets in case of any issues, as these are proof that you have flown.
3. MAY I USE MY POINTS TO UPGRADE TO BUSINESS CLASS?
If you are interested in purchasing an upgrade to business class we can offer great business class rates.
