How can I pay for things onboard TUI flights?


Just so you know, we only accept card payments on TUI flights.

Credit and debit cards

We accept Visa, Visa Debit, MasterCard and MasterCard Debit onboard TUI flights. Unfortunately, you won't be able to use AMEX, Diners' Club, Maestro, Electron, Solo, Monzo or Revolut cards.

Prepaid cards

We can't accept prepaid cards – including the TUI Travel Money Card – onboard. This is because, onboard our aircraft, we work in what's called an offline environment. This means our payment machines aren't connected to the bank, so we can't confirm that there's enough money on the card to cover the items you're paying for.

What airports can I fly from?

You can fly short-haul from more than 21 UK airports in the summer, and more than 16 in the winter. And if you fancy heading further afield, we operate long-haul flights from more airports than any other UK airline.

What should I do if my luggage is lost or delayed?
