TUI have recently upped their hand luggage allowance for all TUI flights. What was once only 5kg, TUI have made the move to match many of their competitors and are now offering one piece of hand luggage per person (excluding infants) weighing up to 10kg!

This will still be restricted to bags with maximum dimensions of 55x40x20cm and everything you carry, including laptops and handbags must be able to fit within your one piece of hand luggage.

Luggage allowance can sometimes feel quite confusing so we’ve decided to do a quick overview of the TUI luggage allowance, specifically aimed at Marella Cruises packages.

TUI hand luggage for cruise

As we’ve literally just mentioned, hand luggage allowance for TUI Airways flights will now be one piece per person, weighing up to 10kg – as long as you meet the defined bag dimensions.

If you’re traveling with children, they may also use a Trunki case as hand luggage, as long as this does not go over the weight limit.

Checked TUI luggage allowance

When flying with TUI Airways on most package holidays your limit would be one bag per person weighing up to 15kg, however with cruise packages you can enjoy an extra 5kg giving you the bigger allowance of 20kg! – This will be clearly shown on your booking so make sure to take note.

If you feel you may need a little extra, for an additional charge each passenger may up their allowance to 25kg.

TUI Premium Club luggage allowance

During your booking process you may be offered a flight upgrade to TUI Premium Club, this does come with an additional charge but also with many additional benefits including a bigger luggage allowance.

Flying Premium Club with TUI Airways gives you a standard luggage allowance of 23kg plus the now increased hand luggage allowance of 10kg.

TUI Infant luggage allowance

If you’re cruising with infants and taking a TUI Airways fly to your ship, you are able to take a pushchair for infants under 2 years old, completely free of charge! Plus as long as your holiday is part of a Marella Cruises package, under 2’s will also be allocated their own 10kg of hand luggage.

Pooling luggage allowance

You may be questioning whether you’ll be charged if your case slips slightly over the 20kg limit but another in your party stays well under. With TUI Airways you are allowed to pool your luggage allowance with anyone else on your booking, however each case can still only weigh up to the maximum on 23kg. – Unless you have upgraded to the 25kg additional baggage option.

To make things even simpler, if you’re a party of two you’ll be entitled to 40kg of luggage between you. This means one case can weigh 23kg and the other only 17kg and this will be accepted without question at the airport!

No fly Marella Cruises luggage allowance

If your cruise departs directly from the UK and therefore no flight is needed you do not need to worry about any luggage weight restrictions!

Feel free to bring as much luggage as you feel you need – just be considerate of the space you have available in your chosen cabin.

TUI luggage restrictions

As with every airline, there are always restrictions to what is allowed and not allowed. For full details of what you can and cannot take as luggage on a TUI Airways flight – please read through their luggage guidelines here.

It also goes without saying, this information is specific to TUI Airways flights, if your package includes flights from a separate airline you’ll need to make yourself aware of their policies.
