A Quick Guide to Bundle & Go

Now that we’ve officially rolled out Bundle & Go™, we’re excited to be able to give you more choices than ever, allowing for flexible travel at a better value. However, we do know that new ways of doing things may take some getting used to, so we also want to do our part in helping determine which option is right for you.

Please note, these Bundle & Go™ tips apply to bookings made after October 25, 2017.

First, let’s cover the basics:

Bundle & Go™ Options

For the best value and to save time at the airport, we recommend selecting a Bundle & Go™ option before you travel (the prices included below are the cost for pre-selecting your baggage options). This way, you can lock in your baggage, seat selection, and boarding priority all ahead of time at a better price. Baggage fees may increase when you elect to pay them at the airport. For a full outline of pricing and all the fine print, check out our Baggage Policies.

Check & Go™

This option allows for reduced seat pricing, preferred boarding, and one checked bag (no larger than 62 linear inches and weighing 50 pounds or less), in addition to the one personal item that fits under your seat on the airplane. One additional bag can be added online, and if you need more than two bags per person they can be purchased at the airport; additional fees may apply in both cases.

Cost: $20 or $25 each way, per bag, depending on your destination. This option is free if you are either a Ufly® Rewards member and you book a Sun Country Vacations® package, or you are a Sun Country Airlines® Visa Signature® Card cardholder.

Store & Go™

This is our most flexible option allowing for reduced seat pricing, priority boarding immediately following first-class passengers, and either one carry-on item (no larger than 24x16x11 inches, including handles and wheels) or one checked bag. It’s also only offered if there is still overhead bin space available, so you can rest assured there will be enough room for your bag when you board the aircraft.

Cost: $30 or $35 each way, per bag, depending on your destination. If you are either a Ufly Rewards member and you book a Sun Country Vacations® package, or you are a Sun Country Airlines® Visa Signature® Card cardholder, the price drops to $15 or $20 each way, per bag.

 Grab & Go™

This is our quickest, most cost-effective Bundle & Go™ option, allowing for one personal item that must be able to fit underneath the seat in front of you (no larger than 17x13x9 inches). Perfect if you travel light.

Cost: $0 – Regardless of your itinerary or traveler status; there is no charge for selecting Grab & Go™. (Plans changed and need to check a bag when you arrive at the airport?  No problem – you can always add additional bags at the airport if needed for an additional fee.)

Now that we’ve got that covered, here’s a quick reference guide to some of the best Bundle & Go™ options for different travel situations:

Spring Break with the Fam in Mexico

When you’re traveling with the whole crew, it can be tricky to pack light – especially when multiple kids are involved. That’s why we think Check & Gois your best bet. Whether you want to pack extra toys, multiple changes of clothes, or all the spare undies the kids could possibly need, this option gives you peace of mind. Not to mention, if you’re a Ufly Rewards member and you’ve booked your flight and hotel through Sun Country, your first checked bag for each traveler is on us!

Girls/Guys Weekend in Vegas

With mini vacays that only span a few days, we recommend Store & Go. That way you’re able to deplane quickly with your carry-on to get the party started, but you can check your suitcase on the way home if you found a few extra things you “just had to have” while shopping on The Strip.

Quick Day Trip to New York

This kind of trip often comes with a less-is-more approach, so opt for the included Grab & Gooption. Toss your toothbrush, a change of clothes, and your camera in a small bag or backpack that can fit under the seat in front of you, and get on and off the plane as fast as possible.

A Few Days at the Beach in Florida with the Kids

In this case, we think the flexibility of Store & Gois hard to beat. Smaller carry-on size luggage mean less hassle with bulky suitcases through the airport (while simultaneously trying to keep all the little ones within eyesight). It also means you’re less likely to over-pack for a trip where you’ll be spending most of your day at the beach because swimsuits and flip flops don’t usually take up too much space. (Pro-tip: Remember you can mix-and-match your options too, so mom and dad can choose Store & Gofor them, and Check & Gofor the kids to save even more money and hassle.)

Honeymoon in the Caribbean

Honeymoons should be all about that “treat-yo-self” mentality, so we think Check & Gois the way to go. Why not splurge and upgrade to First Class while you’re at it, and get a carry-on, and two checked bags for free? That way, you’ll have plenty space to pack a wide range of outfits for any activity – whether it’s extra dresses for fancy dinners or spare tennis shoes for an active excursion. It also gives you more room for memorable souvenirs like that nice bottle of rum you got on your excursion that you wouldn’t be allowed to bring back in a carry-on.

Finally, here are a few last helpful hints:

  • You can select which Bundle & Go™ option works best for you either at the time of booking or at any time leading up to online check-in without impacting the cost.
  • Each person on a reservation can choose a different bundle, so you have added flexibility if one traveler packs light (Grab & Go™), one likes to keep belongings on board (Store & Go™), or someone tends to bring extra sets of everything (Check & Go™).
  • Also, if you are a Ufly Rewards member and book a vacation package, or are a Sun Country Airlines® Visa Signature® Card cardholder, everyone on your reservation can enjoy the same pricing as you (either free Check & Go™ or discounted pricing on Store & Go™).
  • You can also choose different bundles for each way of the trip if you know you’ll be doing some serious shopping, or leaving a few items before your return.
  • Need more room? No problem. Add one additional checked bag to either the Check & Go™ or Store & Go™ option online in advance.

Bundle & Go™ is all about personal preference, allowing you to choose the options that best meet your individual travel needs and budget. When in doubt, review our Baggage Policies or contact our reservations team at 800-359-6786 with any questions.

    I had the misfortune of traveling on a plane that had been fitted with the new narrow seats and less legroom from Phoenix. It was a miserable experience and I am 5’11 and 215lbs. My legs were against the seat in front of me, which was thankfully occupied by a youngster. I will not fly this airline again. As a Minnesotan, I firmly believe in supporting the “hometown” businesses, NOT THIS ONE!!
