Golfers come back here year after year, and it’s easy to see why. For a start, some of the world’s finest championship golf courses are within easy reach. From the beautiful lakes and waterfalls of Victoria Course - suitable for all handicap levels - to Vila Sol which has hosted the Portuguese Open, you’ll find something to challenge your game in glorious surroundings.

Thomson has literally thousands of customers who choose to fly to Portugal every year and with the added incentive of free golf carriage, there is no better time to fly.

To take advantage of this amazing offer and guarantee a space within the aircraft hold for your equipment, you need to pre-book your item. The Thomson aircraft hold is limited and they have a restriction on the amount of equipment that can be accommodated. If you do not pre-book, Thomson will only accept your equipment if there is sufficient room in the aircraft hold and you will have to pay the appropriate fee at the airport.

Make sure to secure your golf clubs and other sports equipment - Thomson recommend that zipper type compartments are padlocked.

Applies to all new bookings:

The transport of individual golf clubs as hand baggage is not permitted. If you wish to carry just one or two clubs, Thomson recommends that they are protected in a padded box for carriage in the hold of the aircraft.

Thomson recommends that passengers have insurance cover for the replacement value of all their sports equipment.

Please note that your clubs must be added to your flight booking at least 3 days in advance of your departure date.
