Lost or Damaged Baggage

In case of lost, forgotten or damaged items or luggage during your flight, we are ready to assist you. Report loss or damage immediately upon arrival at the destination or airport, at the baggage handler of the airline you flew with. It is also necessary to have a so-called PIR report drawn up. You will need this report for travel insurance purposes. When reporting, we ask you to give as detailed a description of the object as possible. Photos and any proof of purchase are valuable and can speed up the process. For found objects on Corendon flights with flight number CD, please email a copy of the report to lostandfound@corendon.nl.

If you are flying with another airline, please consult that airline's official website for additional information.

If it concerns a lost item on board and we have it in our possession, it is possible to send the item at your own expense. In some cases it is also possible to collect the item, in consultation with the Lost & Found department.

Important Information

  • It is important to note that Corendon cannot be held liable for lost, forgotten or damaged items or the delivery of your luggage on a later route. We offer no guarantee that items, even if reported as found, can actually be delivered to you. It is advisable to take out travel and/or cancellation insurance. In case of damage or delay, you can claim insurance in some cases.
  • Tracing the lost items takes time, so take into account a handling period of at least 4 weeks.
  • By reporting a lost or forgotten item, you agree to the above terms and conditions.

Here you can find information about customs rules (departure from and arrival at Dutch airports)

Information may change, so always check the website of Dutch Customs for the current rules.

Customs Travel App

Want to bring home another specific purchase? Check with the free Customs Travel App if your purchase complies with Dutch customs rules. Still unsure? Post your question or photo of your purchase on the Facebook or Twitter page of Customs with #magditmee, and customs officers will find out for you.


Liquid Items in Hand Baggage

Read here the current information about (hand) baggage.

Liquids and gels can be taken in containers of up to 100 ml. These containers can only be taken in a transparent plastic bag. Each person can take one transparent, resealable plastic bag with a maximum content of 1 liter. Thermos flasks (empty or full) are not allowed.

Can I take my tax-free purchases on the plane?

All liquids such as drinks and perfume purchased at EU airports or on board EU airlines are allowed if the liquids are packed and sealed in a bag by the shop or on board the plane. The liquids must be demonstrably purchased on the day of the flight, and the bag's seal must not be broken.

Stopover/transfer and tax-free purchases

If you have a layover or transit at a European airport and need to disembark briefly, you must take your hand luggage with you. You are not allowed to leave your hand luggage on the plane.

Liquid items purchased at an airport outside the European Union will be confiscated at European airports. Even if they are sealed. This also applies to purchases made on board a non-European airline. Keep this in mind.

Can I take medicines and baby food in my hand luggage?

It is always allowed to take medicines and baby food needed for the duration of the trip in your hand luggage. You must be able to prove at customs that you need the medicines during the journey.


Prohibited Items

Due to flight safety on board, the following items are not allowed both in hand baggage and checked baggage:

  • Dangerous substances
  • Firearms and firearms
  • Pointed/sharp weapons (objects)
  • Blunt objects
  • Explosives and flammable substances
  • Chemical and toxic substances
  • Trophies of (parts of) animals obtained from hunting, even if obtained legally

More information about prohibited items in hand baggage and checked baggage can be found here in the questions: What objects am I not allowed to transport in my checked baggage? and What objects am I not allowed to transport in my hand baggage?


Customs Rules

A foreign trip is an ideal opportunity to buy souvenirs, gifts, or other items. Before you enthusiastically shop at a destination outside the European Union (EU), it is important to check whether your potential purchase complies with Dutch customs rules. You are not allowed to take everything home. These regulations apply to all countries outside the EU, such as Turkey and the Caribbean islands, including Curaçao. The Canary Islands are an exception and are also subject to regulations for countries outside the EU.

Almost everyone knows that you are not allowed to take protected species or coral with you. But there are also customs rules for food (including dairy and meat), drinks, and the number of cigarettes you are allowed to take with you. With the free Customs Travel App, you can easily check what you can take home and avoid confiscation and any fines.

The five main points for destinations outside the EU:


1. Purchases above € 430

When taking items home from a destination outside the EU, you need to consider the € 430 rule. This means that you have to pay tax on items that have a total value above € 430. It doesn't matter if you bought them yourself or received them as a gift. Upon arrival at the Dutch airport, you must choose the red passage at Customs. This can also be recognized by the sign with the text 'Declaration of goods' on it.


2. Counterfeit Articles

In many destinations such as Turkey and Egypt, you can buy brand clothing and accessories at a low price. There is a high chance that these are counterfeit products, even though the seller often denies it. In the Netherlands, it is allowed to bring counterfeit items for personal use. Dutch Customs uses the following guidelines:

  • It is plausible that the products are for personal use
  • The type and quantity of products indicate that you have no commercial (secondary) intentions
  • You occasionally bring counterfeit products to the Netherlands

For example, it is plausible that you buy 3 counterfeit brand T-shirts for yourself. But if you bring 30 counterfeit brand T-shirts or multiple camcorders, it is more likely that you want to resell them. If Customs suspects that you want to resell products, they will be confiscated. The rightful owner will also be informed. This is the official brand from which you have taken counterfeit products. They may decide to take legal action.


3. Cigarettes and Tobacco

For destinations outside the EU, you can bring certain quantities of tobacco without paying tax:

  • 200 cigarettes or
  • 50 cigars or
  • 100 cigarillos or
  • 250 grams of smoking tobacco

A combination of the above is also allowed. Sellers at foreign airports often claim that you can take higher quantities. This is not the case. If you exceed the allowed quantity, you must pay excise duty, VAT, and import duties. If, during a check by Customs, it turns out that you exceed the limits and you have not actively reported this, you will also receive a fine.

For destinations within the EU, different rules apply. You can find them here.


4. Alcohol

There are also maximum quantities per person from 17 years old for bringing alcohol:

  • 16 liters of beer and 4 liters of non-sparkling wine and
  • 2 liters of liqueur wine/sparkling wine, such as champagne or
  • 1 liter of strong alcohol, such as whiskey, cognac, and gin

A combination of the last 2 groups of drinks is allowed, as long as the total does not exceed 2 liters.

If you bring more than the allowed quantity, you must actively report this to Customs and pay excise duty, VAT, and import duties. If Customs finds during a check that you exceed the limits and you have not actively reported this, you will receive a fine.

For destinations within the EU, different rules apply. You can find them here.


5. Declaration Requirement for Cash, Checks, and Securities

There are rules for bringing cash, checks, and securities. These apply both when departing to your travel destination and returning from your holiday destination. If you bring € 10,000 or more in cash, checks, or securities, you must report this to Customs. You do not have to pay tax on this amount. But Customs must know that you have this with you. This naturally also applies to amounts in other currencies that, when converted, exceed the €10,000 limit.
