Personal injuries or damage to baggage
Arlanda Express is according to the Railway Traffic Act strictly liable for personal injury and simultaneous damage to carried baggage. Solely damage to objects, which Arlanda Express as an exception is liable for, is limited to half a base-amount. It is therefore recommended that you have your baggage insured before departure.
Arlanda Express will not compensate for damage you may sustain by getting on the wrong train or missing the time of departure. The same is applicable when not allowing yourself enough time margin for travelling to Arlanda. If your baggage causes any damage, you are obliged to compensate for the damage in accordance with the general tort law.

Checked-in bulky baggage, as for example bicycles and articles for sporting purposes, shall be packed in accordance with the norms of the airlines. Maximum allowed weight per piece of luggage is defined by the regulations of each airline company.
The bicycle does not need to be packaged. We recommend that the handlebars of the bicycle is turned so that they lie along the length of the bicycle.

Arlanda Express provides a travel time guarantee 20 minutes whereby if you are more than five minutes late at your station of destination, you may demand a new ticket. In case of delays of 20 minutes or more a traveler may either get a refund on the ticket price (+ 20 minutes = 50 %, +40 minutes = 75 % or +60 minutes = 100 %) or claim compensation due to the use of substitute transportation up to a limit of 1/40 of the Swedish basic amount (about SEK 1 100). Reasonable costs deducted by Arlanda Express ticket price.
If the journey takes more than 50 minutes from departure station to arrival station and if as a consequence you miss your connecting journey because of this, Arlanda Express will reimburse you for the additional costs you incur by not being able to complete your journey. The maximum reimbursement amount is three-tenths of one base amount (approx. SEK 13 000).
