Your baggage will be weighed when you check in. If you have exceeded your baggage allowance you will be required to pay an extra charge per kilogram over.
Please note that the maximum weight for each individual piece of luggage is 23kg (50.6 lbs). Any item weighing more than 23kg at check-in will need to be re-packed.
For short haul and mid haul flights with Thomson Airways (that’s flights to destinations including mainland Spain, Portugal, the Balearics, Italy, France, Slovenia, Switzerland, Andorra, Austria, Bulgaria, Lapland, Bulgaria, the Canary Islands, Cape Verde, Cyprus, Egypt, Gambia, Turkey, Tunisia, Morocco and Malta), the excess baggage charge is £13 (€13) per kilogram.
For long haul flights with Thomson Airways (that’s flights to destinations including the Caribbean, Mexico, Brazil, Kenya, Sri Lanka, the Maldives, India, Gambia and USA) the excess baggage charge is £18 ($27) per kilogram.
Payment by credit card will incur a 2% charge. Please note that regardless of excess baggage fees paid, no single item of baggage may exceed 23kg (this is for health and safety reasons).
Your excess baggage charges must be paid when you check in at the airport. Most major credit and debit cards, cheques, cash and local currency will be accepted. This may vary, depending on the airport.
You can pre-book excess baggage by logging onto Manage My Booking, if you booked via the website or a Thomson Shop.
We plan in advance just how much baggage weight will be loaded on to each plane for take off. So, when a customer wants to check in more baggage than their allowance, we are often faced with extra costs like handling, screening, not to mention more fuel.
So to keep it fair for everyone, we have a zero tolerance towards excess baggage, and we publish our charges on our websites and in our airports.
Your baggage allowance will be printed on your tickets. If you go over your baggage allowance, we’ll need to charge you for each extra kilogram you take, and remember that regardless of excess baggage fees paid, no single item of baggage may exceed 23kg (this is for health and safety reasons).
We want you to enjoy every moment of your holiday, and that includes your time in the airport too. So please pack sensibly!
