Whilst researching another issue I noticed that the baggage allowances for next summer seem to vary between the majour tour operators.Thomsons and First Choice websites say that their checked in luggage allowance for passengers over 2 years of age ( infants under 2 = 10kg excluding buggies etc. which they say are CURRENTLY not charged ) see thomson.co.uk/editorial/legal/baggage-allowa… firstchoice.co.uk/help/ but the Thomas Cook site says that next summers packages to Menorca include only 15Kg checked in luggage " infants excluded" ( I couldn't see what their allowance was if anything) thomascook.com/travel-info/…although they were offering the option to pay a fee at time of booking to upgrade by a further 5kg per person for £15 each on the holiday I was looking at. and these things need to be considered when you are doing price comparisons.
The charges for in flight meals seemed to vary a lot too if you like to have these (IMO they are generally not worth eating anyway) and it is the little things that add to the cost. For the benefit of all new visitors to the island with children, the Burger King in the departure lounge at Mahon airport is very reasonably priced!
