Hi Debs,

Angie's right, most if not all package holidays over this side of the pond are 5kg, (Premium 7kg) and I actual seen it enforced with Thomas the Crook, sorry Thomas Cook when someone was actually boarding, absurd as it was, the passanger took a jacket out of his carry on, put it on and filled his pockets, ..

Hi shelagh I ask the same question about the hand luggage for a premier hotel. As like you I seenit on line it's only 5kg. But in the brochure it's 7kg and thomson confirm that it's 7kg for a premier hotel. They also said to make sure that any carry on luggage will fit into the luggage guide as you board the plane.

Unfortunately not all airport staff are aware of the 7kg option...eg last year we went to Cape Verde ..riu Touareg ..thomson premier/platinum. I took the brochure to Birmingham airport with me just in case and low and behold when they weighed our hand luggage.. They said we were over 5kg so had to empty...even showing the brochure he insisted still over until he got his manager. Then all sorted!!

We are thomson couples this year.. manchester this time, Still 7kg, still taking the brochure......Incase anyone needs it .....as we've upgraded to premium cabin this time.:-) xxx

Take brochure and pass it on... Worth it for us last year x

Your luggage allowance should be stated on your ticket documentation so there should be no arguements at the airport

It doesn't state it i'm afraid ... At least it doesnt with Thomsons unless it's changed this year.
