Plane change?

When travelling through Toronto or Montreal going from Halifax to Orlando and back do you still pick up your luggage and go through security with it. We have been lucky and had direct flights or gone through the US the past few trips.

Inbound (ie. returning to Canada), you will have to claim your bags to clear customs, but you don't take them though security. You'll clear immigration, pick up the bags, walk through customs (handing your declaration form to the customs officer) and then immediately re-check on the other side. Just make sure you have your boarding passes for the connecting flight handy, as you'll need them to re-check the bags.

Outbound, you should NOT have to pick up your bags in either Montreal or Toronto. US customs agents have the ability to "recall" your bags if necessary. In Toronto this is a recent change. You can see details at the following websites:


(Sorry about the formatting, you'll have to replace the -dot- with an actual dot. Everything else I tried got auto-formatted into a link, which it would then refuse to post since apparently I don't have enough prior posts for that. How irritating. So much for trying to be helpful. Maybe someone else can repost them in a more friendly format.)

Thanks MAB2012 that was the info I was looking for. We seem to have more luggage coming back and of course we are tired, really don't like having to deal with luggage, but may have to.

You definitely do not pick up your bags in Montreal on the way down. They will show you a picture. We usually fly from a US airport into Halifax on the way home and forgot we will have to get our bags on the way back in September

One more reason to pack lite and take only carry-ons.
