HI!! I am using Divi from Cur To BON next week and was wondering if anyone had any experience with them limiting or charging for a second piece of luggage. According to their web site, they are allowing only one piece at about 40 lbs per seat. In the past I have been allowed to take two or more bags on Divi and have not been charged. Have I just been lucky the past 4 years? Or is this a new policy that is actually being enforced?

We used Divi last month. I too had not been charged extra in the past for two pieces of luggage per person. This time they did not count the number of bags (3 check throughs for 2 people)but took the TOTAL weight of our bags and charged us for what was over. They did include our rolling carry-on in the weight which is what "put us over" their limit. I think we paid about 6 dollars extra.

We just got back from bonaire and used Divi round trip from Curacao -Bonaire. I also have used them in the past before the "new" website and baggage limits were posted. I knew that this trip we were taking the maximum amount of luggage per American Airlines policy I emailed them prior to our flight and they told me the policy was as printed on the website. We were prepared to pay extra if necessary.

thanks guys! All is as I expected. Six dollars is nothing to take all your stuff and be comfortable....... Even more is fine. I don't ever expect to get something for nothing.....

This thread gives me hope. I just booked my room at Belmar and we were planning on Divi from Cur to Bon. Then we realized that the limit is 44lbs total per person, including carry on. Originally we were budgeting for 44lbs just for our 'checked' bags.

I never thought to drop the bags off early. Such a simple plan, I love it. Thanks much for the tip.
