Baggage, also known as luggage, are items which a traveler brings with them packed in a bin, bag, case, or other such container that is apart from their person. Baggage can include suitcases, backpacks, briefcases, trunks, bags, and more.

On transportation forms such as buses and planes, baggage can be deemed as checked luggage or carry-on baggage, while overweight or overlarge items may be termed excess baggage.

To determine the quantity and weight allowed per passenger, the traveler must contact the company or check the fine print of their travel reservation and identify the baggage allowance.

Checked baggage usually can be found at the destination airport on the baggage carousel, where passengers await, impatiently bagonizing until theirs come around.
