IMPORTANT NOTE about luggage:

Domestic flights within India have a 15kg  limit for checked luggage and a 7kg limit for carry-on luggage.  We are enquiring about transferring non-essential luggage and shopping to our final destination of Mumbai (from Jaipur and Bhuj if required) where guests can consolidate their luggage prior to the international flight home. There will be an additional cost associated with transferring these items and our guests can choose to use this option to transfer their excess shopping. If using this option, we suggest guests pack a flexible light backpack that can be carried in checked luggage on the international legs which have a baggage allowance of 30kg. These backpacks can be used as carry on luggage for domestic flights. We also  suggest that guests bring clothes they are happy to leave behind in case of excess shopping.
