Which suitcases for your flight to Portugal? How to bring back your gifts and souvenirs?

Taking advantage of a great weekend to discover Lisbon, Porto or the Algarve? Be careful when preparing your luggage!

Be sure to check the maximum weights and dimensions allowed, as this will prevent you from having to display the contents of your suitcase in other bags at the airport counter.
You should also check your airline company policy to avoid paying an extra charge on the way out or back.
You would like to bring back with you some souvenirs from your stay or some gifts for your friends or family but you need more space? We have the solution.

flying with an airline company can be troublesome. Here are a few tips.

 

★ Authorized weights and dimensions for luggage

Quelle valise pour un week end au Portugal ?Generally speaking, each airline company has its own regulations and the differences are sometimes measured in centimetres. I advise you to check before you leave because the regulations change frequently.
Usually, the maximum weight of a check-in luggage varies from 20 to 23 kg depending on the company and its dimensions must not exceed 158 cm cumulatively. Beyond that, companies charge you an additional weight up to a maximum of 32kg.
Hand luggage, those you take with you in the cabin, must be less than 56x45x25 cm and their weight must remain less than 8kg.
Please note that liquids and gels may only be transported in the cabin under certain conditions: they must be placed in individual containers with a maximum capacity of 100 ml. All these containers must themselves be placed in a closed transparent plastic bag, with a maximum capacity of one litre and maximum dimensions of 20 cm x 20 cm.

 

Les franchises

If you come to Portugal with Easyjet, your hand luggage under 56x45x25cm is free but most of the time it will travel in the hold (!) Your larger luggage, up to 275 cm perimeter, will travel in the hold but at an extra cost. So, be careful, many people get caught. If you travel with a suitcase and a handbag, you will be asked to put your bag in your suitcase when you board.

If you fly with the Portuguese national airline, the TAP, you can bring a maximum of 8kg of hand luggage but its dimensions are limited to 55x40x20cm. Your larger luggage will travel free of charge in the hold but its dimensions will be limited to 158cm of perimeter.

In other words, there is a lot of confusion before each departure. I, therefore, recommend that you carefully check the website of the airline you have chosen.
