More detailed information about Thomson baggage allowance and fees below:
You can take 1 piece of hand baggage weighing up to 5kg and with maximum dimensions of 55x40x20cm. On some holidays you’re allowed 7kg – this will be clearly shown whilst you’re booking if it applies. Things like laptops, handbags and items bought at the airport must fit within your 1 piece of hand baggage. You must be able to lift your hand luggage into the overhead storage compartments yourself. You can bring a Trunki case as hand luggage, as long as it weighs less than 5kg.
There is no free baggage allowance for Economy class passengers on any Thomson flight. Only Premium Class seats are allowed to bring up to 23kg/50lbs free of charge.
If you’re planning on bringing checked luggage on your trip, we recommend that you pre-purchase a baggage allowance online, as you will get a much better price than when paying at the airport.
You’re entitled to a 15kg baggage allowance on our package holidays. Certain types of holiday come with a bigger allowance of 20kg – this is clearly shown whilst you’re booking if it applies.
Flight only bookings
You can book checked-in baggage for an extra charge whilst you’re booking, or through our Flight Extras website if you’ve already booked.
Booking your baggage allowance online is cheaper than paying by phone or at the airport.
Infants under 2 years old get a 10kg luggage allowance with Thomson Airways. You can also take a pushchair for free.
If you’re taking sports equipment with you, you’ll need to call us at least 2 months before you travel on 0203 451 2695 to pre-book it onto your flight. If you don’t pre-book, we may refuse to carry your equipment when you get to the airport.
Protecting your sports equipment:
We recommend you insure your sports equipment for its replacement value and make sure it’s securely packed with zip compartments padlocked. If you’re taking a bicycle, we recommend you use a bicycle bag. Handlebars must be turned inwards, pedals removed, tyres deflated and the bicycle must be wrapped in plastic or cardboard.
If you’re carrying diving equipment and you show your diving certificate at check-in, we’ll give you an extra 5kg baggage allowance free. If you’ve got more equipment, you can check it in for an extra charge.
If your instrument is larger than the maximum hand baggage dimensions, you’ll need to check it in for an extra charge. We recommend you mark the instrument as fragile and advise check-in staff to handle with care. See our Conditions of Carriage for full details.
If you’re going on a ski flight, you can check-in up to 20kg of baggage and carry 1 piece of hand baggage up to 5kg. Or if you’re staying in a Premium property, you can take up to 23kg hold luggage and 7kg hand luggage.
The maximum dimensions of any piece of hand luggage are 55x40x20cm and you must be able to lift your hand luggage into the overhead storage compartments yourself. Things like laptops, handbags and items bought at the airport must fit within your 1 piece of hand baggage.
