Bookings and Reservation

All guests are entitled to one medium sized luggage (30”x22”x15) per ticket. For comfort and safety purposes, we are unable to accommodate any luggage with dimensions exceeding this standard. In cases where specific guest(s) luggage exceeds this requirement, affected guests will be asked to either send the excess luggage via our sister company, GIG Logistics or purchase an extra seat to accommodate it.
We recommend the use of flexible traveling boxes as plastic boxes are not acceptable on our buses. This is because these boxes are fragile and not pliable enough which poses a challenge during luggage loading activities.
Owing to the embargo placed by the Nigeria Customs on the importation of some food commodities, kindly note that we do not carry bag(s) of rice on board our vehicles. Fragile items such as electronics, laptops and other valuable items are not to be placed in the trunk of our vehicles but carried as hand luggage.

Guests are also advised to monitor their luggage at all times till their final destination.
