If you have booked a holiday or flight with TUI and you’re wondering whether you need to worry about hand luggage allowance you can find out below whether your hand luggage bag will be weighed and how much allowance you will have.
TUI Hand Luggage Allowance
The hand luggage allowance for a package holiday is a bag with the dimensions of 55x40x20cm that weighs up to 10kg per person, this does not include infants. If you are bringing items on the plane such as a handbag, laptop and anything you have bought inside the airport, they will all need to fit inside of your hand luggage and weigh less than 10kg before you board the plane. You will need to be able to lift your hand luggage into the overhead compartment yourself. Trunki cases can be classed as hand luggage as long as they don’t weigh more than 10kg.
If you have a flight only ticket the dimensions and weight for hand luggage is the same at 55x40x20cm and 10kg. You are allocated one hand luggage item per plane ticket. You will also be required to put laptops, handbags and items bought inside the airport into your hand luggage before boarding the plane and it must not weigh more than 10kg. You will also need to be able to lift your own hand luggage into the overhead compartment.
Do TUI Weigh Hand Luggage
When you are checking your hold baggage at the TUI desk in the airport, your hand luggage will not usually be weighed with these bags. This is because you may add extra weight into the bag once you have went through duty free. You will have the chance to make sure your bag fits the measurements at this counter as they offer a measuring box that you should be able to slide your bag in and out of. Once you are boarding the plane, a member of TUI staff may weigh your bag to ensure it is below the 10kg allowance. If your bag is over the 10kg allowance you will be required to pay for extra allowance. It is important to make sure you don’t go over the allowance as this may slow down the boarding of your plane.
