Please note: as an example, if you purchased a Plan Ahead fare and are a Smiles Silver customer, your first checked bag is free of charge. If you would like to check more bags, you will be charged a R$50 fee for the second bag, if the fee is paid in advance.

Checked baggage fees are charged per passenger and per segment

Baggage items may not weigh more than 45 kg (99 lbs) on domestic flights and 32 kg (71 lbs) on international flights. To learn about the baggage weight limits for international flights operated by GOL partner airlines, please clique aqui and check the baggage rules for the airline that is operating your flight.

Are you going to travel with one of our partner airlines?

When passengers travel with GOL partner airlines the baggage rules of the partner airline will apply, regardless of whether the ticket was purchased through a GOL sales channel or issued using Smiles miles. Should the passenger exceed the baggage weight limit set forth by the partner airline, a fee will be charged according to the baggage rules of the partner airline.

If the reservation/locator code contains a segment operated by GOL, a baggage fee will not be charged and the baggage rules of the partner airlines will apply. The same rule applies for multiple segment flights when one of the segments is operated by a partner airline.

Excess Baggage

Should your checked bag weigh more than 23 kg (51 lbs), you will be charged an excess baggage fee of R$12.00 per extra kg for domestic flights and US$4.00 per extra kg for international flights. Bags may not exceed 45 kg (99 lbs) on domestic flights and 32 kg (71 lbs) on international flights.

Free Checked Baggage

If you are traveling with a lap child, you may check 1 stroller or 1 baby carrier and 1 car seat free of charge. On domestic flights, if other items need to be checked for the child, they will be counted as part of the baggage of a parent or guardian. On international flights, babies are entitled to 10 kg (22 lbs) of free baggage, in addition to the baggage described above.

Special needs passengers who use a mobility or medical device (such as a wheelchair, for example) may transport one such item at no additional cost. If the passenger is travelling with more than one item, GOL offers an 80% discount on the excess baggage fee for indispensable mobility or medical devices. Learn more about the boarding of passengers with physical disabilities or permanent or temporary reduced mobility.

Maximum number of items

Regardless of a passenger's baggage benefits (weight or number of items), GOL will only accept a total of 10 items per passenger.

For safety reasons, baggage that exceeds normal checked baggage weight or size limits will only be accepted on the passenger's original flight if there are no weight or space restrictions on the aircraft. The passenger may opt to have GOL transport the oversized or overweight baggage on the next available flight, but it will be the passenger's responsibility to pick up the baggage at the destination airport.

Total baggage benefit

GOL allows two or more passengers travelling under the same locator code and who check in together to combine their baggage benefits. Should this occur, the total weight rather than the number of items will be considered.

FAQ

1 – This benefit is granted to Smiles Silver members. The 10 segments must be flown with GOL or its partner airlines within the same year and paid in full. A segment means each leg of your trip. For example: a non-stop flight is considered 1 segment, and a flight with 1 connection (in which you change airplanes) is considered 2 segments. You must provide your Smiles number during your purchase or while checking in.
