When you fly 10 segments with GOL, you are upgraded to the Smiles Silver category
and your 1st checked bag is free.*

*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 be 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.

Non-cumulative benefits

The checked baggage benefits pertaining to your fare type and your Smiles category are not cumulative. But don't worry. You will always receive the benefit that gives you the most.

Example: 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.

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. To learn about the baggage weight limits for international flights operated by GOL partner airlines, please click here and check the baggage rules for the airline that is operating your flight.

What can you pack?

Before packing your bags, please read what can I pack in my checked baggage.

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.
