Debit Cards are best used in ATM's but do inform your bank the dates you will be in the DR as they will block your card for fraudulent use.......depending who you bank with and which account you hold there will be no fees in using it, but if your bank still charges, charges are lower than using a Credit Card.

Teresa,

You can use the day before check-in at the airport but that is only available at Gatwick, Manchester or Birmingham which is actual checking in and receiving of boarding cards and your flight departs before 12.00 midday, you can check in from 12.00 midday to 10pm the day before you fly.

Online check-in opened today, but apparently Thomson are having a few problems with the new website going 'live'.

You can check in on-line 2 weeks before your flight if you have pre-booked your seats or 7 days before if no seats are booked.

Here is the link to the new Flight Extra website page for checking in etc.

Hi Angie,

Is the online check in and bag drop replacing day before check in or can we still check in the day before as we have before?

Thanks

Angle, do we get our seat allocation when we check in online even if we haven't pre booked our seats?

Hi epcepm

From my OP if you’d like to use our day before bag drop service at Gatwick, Manchester or Birmingham, you must have checked-in online. When dropping your bags, you'll need to show your home-printed boarding passes to our airport staff.
