1. Re: Sundown Check-in with Thomas Cook UK.

Do we still have to arrive 2 hours before departure if we do the sundown check in the night before?

wills_lew,

Actually check-in is 3 hours before departure for long haul flights but using the sundown check-in service as all check in desks close 1 hour prior to scheduled departure time. You really should check in no later than 2 hours, to allow for possible long security queues.

7. Re: Sundown Check-in with Thomas Cook UK.

Hi Angie,

Do all passengers need to be present or can one person take the luggage and the passports? We are flying the same day (different country and airline) as our daughter and her family (two boys aged 18 months and 5) as we are traverling with Thomson we can check in a day early so searched for Thomas Cook and found they also do an early check-in but can't find out whether all of them will need to be there as with Thompson one person can do all luggage and passports?

Thank you

Tracy

Hi Tracy,

All passengers on the same booking have to present themselves at check-in with Thomas Cook "Sundown" just like the normal Thomas Cook check-in rules.

Angie

on a similar topic, with the option of online check in with Thomas Cook at Manchester, how does it work in terms of the security/luggage labels you normally have affixed at the check in desk when you use online check in. Do you go to a different desk or do they get printed when you drop your bags off?

Thanks

Hi skoosh,

When you do online check-in with TC when you get to the airport you have a bag drop desk to go to, they will tag your luggage with the usual security/luggage labels.
