Thanks for the link.

It states luggage cannot exceed 50x60x80 cm and luggage greater than 25x45x70 cm will be subject to PIT tarrif

What is a PIT tariff?

do you buy this at the ticket machine where you buy your tram ticket?

The English version is highly ambiguous (maybe deliberately so) and is not a verbatim translation.

In fact you can bring 3 pieces of luggage totalling 50 kg with you free of charge with any ticket as long as it doesn't endanger the safety or interests of passengers - you only need to buy a 13 Crown ticket if your luggage or part thereof exceeds the dimensions as set out in Article 7.4 (3)(a)-(d) of the T's and C's. Other items that may be brought with you free of charge are defined in Article 7.4 (4) (a)-(g)

If you have a ticket for 24 hours or longer you can bring one item that exceeds these dimensions for free.

Thanks for the clarification. I was very confused with the different dimensions on the website.
