On a recent trip to a Spanish-speaking country, I realized I don't know most of the terms involved in the process of retrieving luggage at a destination airport. I thought it would make sense to combine them in one question. What are the typical Spanish translations for:

  • baggage claim
  • baggage carousel
  • conveyer belt
  • oversize baggage
  • overweight baggage
  • checked baggage
  • carry-on baggage
  • baggage cart
