Thomson Hand Baggage Allowance

The maximum weight of hand baggage for a standard traveller is 5kg.

Other bags such as handbags, laptop bags or laptop computers must be carried within the single item of cabin baggage. We recommend that video cameras, mobile telephones and other valuable items should be carried as hand luggage.

You should be able to lift hand baggage into overhead storage compartments yourself.

Thomson Hold Baggage Allowance

Each customer is entitled to a check-in allowance of 20kg baggage with dimensions no greater than 55cm x 40cm x 20cm.

No single item of baggage may exceed 23kg. Customers who have pre-paid for an additional check-in allowance which places them over the 23kg limit must check in an additional bag.

Baggage allowances can be pooled across a party.

Thomson Pre-Bookable Excess Baggage Allowance

You can pre-book excess baggage on the Thomson website and save money.
