You can take 1 piece of hand baggage weighing up to 5kg and with maximum dimensions of 55x40x20cm. On some holidays you’re allowed 7kg – this will be clearly shown whilst you’re booking if it applies.

Thomson weighed our hand luggage at Newcastle in May and mine was a little over the 5kgs so I just took some items out and put in in a carrier and after she weighed it again I just put the extra bits back into my hand luggage,

This was despite our cases weighing only 16 kg each despite having a 20 kg allowance.

I have always took a over the shoulder handbag but they are very strict these days.

If you put some bits in a carrier and place it at your feet you can always put the items in your bag after check in.

There is always someone who gets on my flight with hand luggage bigger than my case!

In september they were very strict. 15kg is actually not a lot especially on the way back I highly recommend you purchase the extra baggae at least between two of you as once you are in Turkey you cannot buy this.

Hand luggage is also weighed as you check in with a max of 5kg. They are strict and will charge for every full kilo over.
