Hey,

I was just wondering if anyone could answer a few questions I have. I'm leaving to Italy in a few weeks with Thomson Al Fresco.

  • How do you all normally take your luggage? If I checked in a holdall, and carried on a cabin-sized suitcase, would that be too much? I don't want to get there and look high maintenance :P
  • Anyone know what I should expect with Al Fresco? As it's mobile homes, is the cleaning generally a bit easier? I'm on a large campsite
  • Any other tips/advice
I had more questions, but I can't remember them now :/

Thanks :)

I'm guessing you're going for the whole season? I always take a suitcase/holdall then hand luggage too, I take as much as possible. I've worked for them for past couple of years, the cleanings not too bad, theres deposits in place, so only get the odd really bad clean. What site you on?

large holdall or case that expands. No more than 20kg in your main hold case(unless they say otherwise)  and stuff your day sack with all that you can.  Dunno which airline y'd be going with, some airlines have more carry on than others, so worth checking the airlines website when u get the travel details thru.

I rolled up to Tuscany last summer with a full size suitcase 15kg and a cabin suitcase 10kg and to be honest I wasn't bothered about looking high maintenance at all. 

Its entirely up to you what you do but you are going to be there for a long time so you do want to have enough clothes...

The more you can pack in the better! I took hardly anything with me last year and it was a nightmare. Which region in Italy have you got? I'm going to be in Garda, leave on Friday, really can't wait :)
