Barbados Airport transfer to Palm Island

Has anyone been to Palm Island and could answer if the transfer at Barbados airport is easy for the flight to Union Island transfer to Palm. Do we need to mark up our luggage so the rep can identify if the flight into Barbados is delayed and luggage does not make it onto the small plane transfer and luggage has follows next day, oh I hope not? We're travelling with Virgin

The transfer of people is easy. You will be intercepted before you enter Barbados customs and will go to the departure lounge. Your baggage tags will be used (by others) to retrieve your baggage. A distinctive marking is worth the effort. If you use a patterned or coloured ribbon or whatever have a sample with the baggage tags.

Plan on the luggage being a day late. It will sometimes be on your plane, but sometimes not be on your plane. Best to be ready and relaxed. You are on vacation.

dwhopper - thank you for your reply.

We will have a hand luggage bag with at least 1 nights change of clothes and swimwear etc ready so at least we can enjoy Palm Island from day 1. Thank you for the info regards distinctive marking, we have luggage bands with our names on but may add a bright ribbon to the top of the cases as extra marking. Counting down the weeks now

Many people use bright ribbons reducing their effectiveness. Maybe another kind of marking could be thought of.

I may put our luggage bands long ways on the cases rather than across the middle and through the top handle as at least can be seen from top of cases if taken off the carousel and stood up with other cases. At least our cases are bright red to start with. Thanks you for your help
