TUI Hand Luggage FAQs

What are the luggage allowance differences between package holiday and flight-only?

For package holidays, TUI generously includes a checked-in luggage allowance. Depending on your specific package, this allowance ranges from 20kg to 25kg. For flight-only bookings, you have the flexibility to tailor your luggage needs, allowing you to add checked-in luggage for an extra charge if you wish.


Am I allowed to take a small bag or handbag with me as well as my cabin case?

Yes! Alongside your main cabin case, TUI allow you to bring a small personal item, such as a handbag, laptop, or briefcase. Just ensure it's compact enough to fit snugly under the seat in front of you.

What If My Cabin Bag Is Overweight/Oversized?

Should your cabin bag exceed the specified limits, there is a possibility of an excess luggage fee. Always pack within the dimensions and weight limits to ensure you avoid the excess baggage fees.

Is it possible to pay nothing for TUI hand luggage?

Indeed, TUI's flight-only bookings come with a complimentary hand luggage allowance, letting you carry one piece of hand luggage weighing up to 10kg, without any additional cost.

What are the TUI hand luggage rules when traveling with infants?

Infants do not have their own hand luggage allowance. However, you can bring a collapsible pushchair onboard, counting towards your own hand luggage allowance. If it fits within the dimensions and weight limits, it can be checked in at no extra cost.
