Delayed/damaged Baggage

Delayed/damaged baggage

Tiger Airways makes every effort to safely deliver your bags to the relevant destination airport on time. In the event however, that this is not the case then you should report the delayed or damaged baggage to a member of the Tiger Airways ground services team prior to leaving the airport. Baggage claims cannot be dealt with after you have left the airport, so please provide details of your baggage and you will be offered assistance.

Tiger Airways strongly recommends all passengers to have Personal Travel Insurance to cover the value of their baggage items since the liability of Tiger Airways for such losses is limited by International Treaties where applicable (Please see the Air Carrier Liability for Passengers and their Baggage section below). Tiger Airways does not accept liability for fragile, valuable, perishable articles or baggage which is packed in damaged or unsuitable containers or for damage to external fixtures such as handles and wheels etc.

If your baggage is delayed then Tiger Airways will arrange for it to be delivered to the destination airport, within a reasonable period of time.

Tiger Airways does not take responsibility for any item lost or damaged on board the aircraft or within the airport terminal buildings. Any items found on board a Tiger Airways flight will be forwarded to the lost and found offices at the destination airport.
