Baggage Allowance

Always worth checking luggage and baggage allowances before you travel

Baggage allowances can be complicated, varying according to routes and class of seat and taking into account the number, weight and dimensions of bags, free allowances, and ever-changing aviation rules. In general, excess baggage and special items can be carried for an additional fee.

For all airlines flying into and out of the UK, a recent safety requirement has been introduced restricting the weight of each single item of luggage to 32kg. This is not your full baggage allowance, rather a measure to reduce strains and injuries among baggage handling staff.

Baggage allowance for Thomson

Luggage max size: Unrestricted
Luggage max weight: 15-20kg
Max hand luggage bags per person: 1
Hand luggage max size: 55 x 40 x 20cm
Hand luggage max weight: 5kg
More information: Thomson Airways offers a free hand luggage allowance of up to 10kg. Each passenger who has opted to pay for check-in luggage has a 20kg and five item limit on checked-in luggage. Customers can save 50 per cent when paying in advance on the Thomson website, compared to paying at the airport or through the call centre.

Remember, this information is liable to change so always check on your airline and airport websites before you start packing.
