E-ticketing Now Available At Thomson And First Choice…

Tuesday 1st November was an important date in the calendar here at Thomson and First Choice HQ. That’s when we embraced the hi-tech world of e-ticketing.

E-tickets are now available for anyone who’s booked a beach holiday on either thomson.co.uk or firstchoice.co.uk. Instead of sending you a mini ticket booklet through the post, we’ll email your tickets – and any associated travel vouchers – as a pdf attachment around six weeks before you’re due to fly. You can then either print off your tickets from the email or, if it’s more convenient, print them from your own personalised website, ‘mythomson’ or ‘myfirstchoice’ . If you’d like a bit more information about how these websites work, click here.

Two of the big benefits of e-ticketing are…

• It’s Easy It means you can keep everything online, from booking your holiday to receiving your tickets.

• It’s Better For The Environment It helps us meet our Holidays Forever commitments by cutting down on the amount of paper we use and reducing our carbon emissions.

First In Line…

To mark the launch, we dished out gifts to our very first e-ticket customers at Manchester and Gatwick airports.

Mr and Mrs Sharp Manchester Airport

Mr and Mrs Sharp, from the Leeds area, checked in for their flight to Malaga at 3.20am on 1st November. The couple – who flew from Manchester – are spending a week at the Angela Hotel in Fuengirola. They’re loyal Thomson customers and were first to use the new e-ticketing system, giving lots of positive feedback in the process.

The Sharps enjoyed a glass of bubbly at the Thomson and First Choice check-in desk, plus they got a £30 Thomson Airways voucher to spend onboard their flight.


Mr and Mrs Smith Gatwick Airport

Over at Gatwick, Mr and Mrs Smith, and their grandson, checked in for their flight to Alicante at 3am on the same day.

They found the new e-ticketing system really easy to understand, too. They went on their way with a bottle of bubbly and £30 of Thomson Airways vouchers.

Here’s what some of our other customers had to say about the new e-tickets…

“The new e-tickets are better because you don’t worry about your tickets not turning up in the post.”

“It was very easy to log in to myfirstchoice and print off my e-ticket.”

    Also, they have ruled the market due to their anatomical constructions of shoes that
    make the shoes anti-stress with special shock absorption system.
    All footwear at Bourne is hand-crafted especially by Opanka
    construction and the use of adhesives and machinery is minimal while creating the shoes, thus making
    the designs eco-friendly. Fresh pairs of UGG products arrive in latest designs and fake boots are replicas of these originals.

    Hi I have booked to go to Morocco in October.we booked on the 16th of December 2014 and would like to know if I am due the refund on child airport tax.

      Hi, As you have booked after 8th December the price will already have been adjusted for the children’s APD tax so you will not be eligible for a refund.

    I am looking to book Club Shark in Gumbet in Turkey. It comes under your Scene Style and I was just wondering, can i expect the lively party round the pool atmosphere I used to get with Twenty’s? As looking at the reviews online it doesn’t seem like that kind of hotel?


    • melanie.james@thomson.co.uk' Melanie James

      Hi Ashley, Our Scene style holidays are described as a more poolside lounge bar than a bar crawl so if your looking for a lively party round the pool atmosphere you would probably be more suited for one of our Scene Hub hotels. Unfortunately, we do not have any Scene Hub hotels in Turkey but have plenty in other destinations like Ibiza, Greece, Bulgaria etc.
