What is TUI’s luggage allowance?

TUI’s luggage allowance varies depending on whether you are travelling on a package holiday or flight only.

Passengers on a flight-only ticket are entitled to:

  • One piece of hand luggage of up to 10kg for free. The maximum dimensions of hand luggage can be 55 x 40 x 20cm 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 the allowed hand luggage item
  • Checked-in luggage can be purchased for an extra charge while booking or through the Flight Extras website if you’ve already booked

  • The hand luggage item can weigh no more than 10kg with maximum dimensions of 55 x 40 x 20cm
