Money saving travellers often choose to fly with low-cost airlines such as easyJet for base rate fares and no-frills flights. Yet the elation of securing a purse-friendly holiday can often fizzle out when baggage costs are taken into account. A variety of restrictions on luggage sees can mean passengers fall foul of the regulations, and often have to pay a premium for checking in their luggage. With many hoping to secure the prospect of some cheap winter sun, after the best 2019 destinations were revealed, easyJet’s baggage policy has been put under the spotlight.
What is easyJet’s cabin bag policy?
One cabin bag is admitted per person on board, with easyJet aircraft only allowing for 70 cabin bags in total.
EasyJet’s representatives will check the size of cabin bags before a passenger boards the plane.
The maximum size allowance is 56x45x25cm (including handles and wheels).
They should be able to fit comfortably into the plane’s overhead lockers, or under the seat in front.
If they are bigger than the maximum size, they will be checked into the hold for an additional charge.
What is easyJet’s hold luggage policy?
Any luggage bigger than cabin bag size will be admitted into the hold.
Each customer, including children and infants, can have up to three hold bags.
A standard bag for the hold weight 23kg and extra weight can be bought in 3kg units, up until 32kg.
Those travelling with family and friends can pool their weight allowance.
No single item, though, can weigh more than 32kg.
Hold baggage has to be collected from the luggage carousel at the destination airport.
What perks do easyJet Plus cardholders get for baggage?
EasyJet’s customers can bring an additional under seat bag such as a laptop bag or handbag.
This has to be a maximum size of 45x36x20cm and must be placed under the seat in front.
Upgrades can be online for £199 per year.
