TUI increases luggage allowance after survey finds Brits regularly pack teabags for holidays

by Staff

Many people going on holiday enjoy packing their home comforts when going abroad, and for many this includes teabags. Research by TUI suggests almost half of British holidaymakers take teabags with them when heading abroad.

A recent survey by the holiday firm revealed interesting stats about what Brits won’t travel without – a third always bring their slippers, one in five carry their own pillow, 16% need their ketchup or sliced bread, and 12% must have their preferred cereal and squash.




Almost half of UK holiday-goers are known to take teabags with them for their vacation, the Mirror reports. On average, Brits start packing five days ahead of their trip, with a quarter confessing they overpack “just in case”. Incredibly, some of us even manage to pack things like our kettle, childhood teddy bear, Pot Noodles, stock cubes, favourite blanket, pet’s photo, or beloved mug.

Every TUI Airways customer can now bring a 20kg bag when flying with them. This limit increases to 25kg for guests staying at TUI BLUE, Holiday Village and A La Carte hotels.

Everyone who booked a holiday on or after December 21 for trips starting from May 1 will be able to avail of the new luggage allowance. This is great news for couple booking one of TUI’s wedding packages, as they will each receive hold luggage weighing up to 25kg when flying with TUI Airways.
