At LUGGit, we understand that packing might be one of the most stressful parts of travelling. We’ve all been there: when you’re checking in your luggage at the airport and the person at the counter tells you that it’s above the permitted weight limit. Then the moment of realisation hits you: you either pay an extra fee or you have to put on every sweatshirt packed.


Worry not! To help you out with your dilemma, we’ve compiled some of the airlines’ baggage allowances just for you.


When booking a low-cost flight, you want to save money, but when it comes to baggage, this can turn into a nightmare! Carefully studying the baggage policy of each airline before booking a flight can make the difference between an economical flight and a more expensive one.



Carry-on baggage - sometimes more expensive than checked baggage


Most low-cost airlines allow you to take a small bag of up to 5 kilos free of charge. This bag must measure approximately 45 x 36 x 20 centimeters and fit in the sit in front of you. However, if you want to take a piece of hand luggage of up to 10 kilos on board, you must pay a fee. The price will depend on the airline as well as the route. Some airlines, such as Ryanair, WizzAir or EasyJet, include 10 kg hand luggage if you buy a priority seat. Only AirEuropa, Volotea, and Jet2.com allow up to 10 kg on board free of charge.

Checked Baggage on Low-Cost Airlines


All low-cost Airlines charge for carrying a suitcase in the hold of the plane. Usually, the maximum size permitted is L + H + W = 158 cm in total and with a maximum weight going from 15 kg to 23 kg.


Remember that is always cheaper to buy the right to check baggage in advance through the airline’s website. If this is done at the airport the price can increase by up to 40%. As for penalties for carrying excess baggage, most low-cost airlines charge a fixed price per extra kilo up to a maximum of 32 kg per piece of luggage.
