EasyJet is a low-cost airline well known for its very low fares, but just as notorious for its additional fees and charges. Fortunately, EasyJet has slightly more lenient fees than Ryanair, it's major competitor flying throughout Europe.
|Checked Baggage Allowance||4/10|
|Excess Baggage Fees||6/10|
One piece of hand baggage is allowed on easyJet flights, with standard maximum dimensions of 56x45x25cm.
There is no weight limit to your carry-on bag, but the one piece limit is strictly enforced. If you have a laptop or purse, it must be placed into the carry-on bag, otherwise it will not be allowed to be carried as carry-on, and an extra fee will be applied.+ Show Full Policy
EasyJet Carry-On Allowance for All Passengers
ONE cabin bag
Maximum size of 56 x 45 x 25cm including handles and wheels.
easyJet Plus, FLEXI fare, Upfront and Extra Legroom customers
One cabin bag as above
Plus ONE additional small under seat bag (For example a handbag or laptop)
Maximum size of 45 x 36 x 20cm which will need to be placed under the seat in front.
No weight restriction applies within reasonable limits - i.e. you must be able to place the piece of luggage safely in the overhead storage bins without assistance.
And, even though it's tempting, please don't try to sneak two items past our gate crew: they'll have to put one of them into the aircraft hold and charge you for it. It will delay yours and everyone else's journey!
Things you can take on board in addition to your one piece of hand luggage:-
One jacket / overcoat, umbrella or shawl
Oxygen / air cylinders (accompanied by a medical certificate)
Guide dogs, hearing dogs or helping dogs
Walking frames or crutches
There is no free checked baggage allowance on easyJet; you will have to pay for every item you check in.
You may purchase a checked baggage allowance of 1 bag (up to 20kg/44lbs). The fee for checked baggage varies by destination. Keep in mind that it is always cheaper to purchase your checked baggage allowance online on the easyJet website. Paying at the airport is often twice as expensive.+ Show Full Policy
IMPORTANT: Every item of standard checked ('hold') baggage will incur a fee.
Hold luggage is the baggage you check-in to be carried in the aircraft's hold. This usually includes larger items such as suitcases or rucksacks, but the term also applies to sports equipment and musical instruments.
Hold luggage, the facts:
Each individual item of hold luggage should not exceed total dimensions of 275cm (length + width + height), except for sporting and medical equipment.
Standard hold baggage allowance is 20kg per bag. Minimum of 1 hold bag per passenger is required to trigger the baggage allowance of 20kg.
For a fee, you can put one bag in the hold weighing up to 20kg. The fee can be paid in one of three ways:
online (£11 - £21 per bag per flight, depending on the route and flight period)
via call centre (£11 - £21 per bag per flight, depending on the route and flight period)
or at the airport where the fee is £30 at the check-in and £45 at the gate.
No single piece of hold baggage can weigh more than 32kg, due to health and safety restrictions.
Payment of the fee entitles each passenger who has paid the fee to check in one item of hold baggage with a maximum weight allowance of 20kg per passenger. You may carry additional items of hold baggage upon payment of the fee per additional item, but this does not increase the weight allowance per passenger. The 20kg weight allowance per passenger may only be increased by payment of the excess weight charges set out.
If you are travelling in a group of two or more you may spread the weight of your luggage across the bags. For example, two passengers with a bag each may carry 20kg of luggage each, but if you wish to put 18kg in one bag and 22kg in the other, then that's okay with us. You've just got to remember that you cannot exceed the 40kg total weight allowance without paying additional charges.
The applicable online fee will be displayed at the time of booking baggage (whether during or after booking your flight). Alternatively, you may choose to pay a higher charge at the airport. You will be advised of this charge at the airport.
A few really important things to remember:
We support health and safety guidance for checked luggage and recommend that you keep the weight of each individual bag below 23kg wherever possible.
Legally we must apply a maximum limit of 32kg so any individual bag weighing more than 32kg cannot be accepted!
Infants who share your seat do not have a baggage allowance so all their stuff will have to go into your bag!

If you will exceed the 20kg allowance that you have purchased, you can buy an extra weight allowance on a per kilogram basis. Again, it is cheaper to plan ahead and purchase the additional weight allowance online, rather than pay a higher rate at the airport. Unfortunately, you will not be refunded the extra weight allowance if it is not used.+ Show Full Policy
Where checked-in hold baggage exceeds 20kgs in weight per passenger who has paid the fee (subject to the checked baggage rules), an excess weight charge per kg up to a passenger maximum of 50kgs will be payable at the airport, as follows. You may also pre-purchase excess weight at a discounted rate through easyJet.com
EasyJet Excess Weight Fee per Kilo
If Paying Online, by currency, per kilo
If Paying at Airport, by currency, per kilo
*Excess weight online can only be purchased in increments of 3kgs
Each passenger is allowed a maximum hold baggage weight of 50 Kgs including any sports equipment, subject to available space. The maximum weight for any single piece of baggage is 32 kgs.
An additional non-refundable fee is charged per item per flight for the carriage of the sporting equipment as follows:
SMALL SPORTS EQUIPMENT
Golf bag - maximum weight 20kg
Skis and / or boots - maximum weight 20kg
Snowboard - maximum weight 20kg

One passenger travelling buys a bag and an additional sporting allowance. This gives an allowance of 2 items (which must include 1 sporting item), at a total weight of 32kg. However, if the sporting item is 18kg and the bag is 14kg then that's fine with us!
Two passengers are travelling with one hold bag and two pieces of sports equipment. This gives an allowance of 3 items (which must include 2 sporting items), at a total weight of 44kg. The exact distribution of weight between baggage items doesn't matter, subject to the maximum weights detailed above for health and safety reasons.
One very important thing to remember: if you've told us you'll be bringing sports equipment, you must do so. In the example where one hold bag and one piece of sports equipment had been purchased, one of the two items must be genuine sporting goods!
Payment of the additional fee increases your checked-in hold baggage allowance (including additional item) to a maximum weight of 32kgs.
Where your total checked-in hold baggage weighs more than 32Kgs, normal excess baggage charges as set out above shall apply in addition to the above fee.
Please note that baggage fees will not be refunded once paid, even where you subsequently do not carry excess baggage, additional baggage, sporting equipment or musical instruments on your Flight.
Infants who share your seat do not have a baggage allowance.
Musical instruments will only be permitted to be carried in the cabin and placed into the overhead locker if space is available and strictly subject to the Captain's discretion. The instrument including its carry case must not exceed the dimensions 30 x 117 x 38cms. Instruments which fit into this category include violin, viola, piccolo, flute, clarinet, bugle and trumpet. (See our carrier's regulations for full details of fees).
All other instruments (except cellos), which exceeds the dimensions 30 x 117 x 38cm, must be checked-in as hold baggage. The maximum weight for any single piece of baggage is 32 kg.
Cellos may be taken into the cabin as long as an additional seat is purchased for the item. Due to the size of the cello it fits well into the seat and the seat belt can fit around it, making it secure. A smaller instrument (e.g. violin, guitar etc) could slip out of the seat belt restraint and fall on the floor of the cabin, which could be hazardous in the event of an emergency. For instruments larger than a cello (e.g. double bass, harp, etc) there is no option to buy a seat. These instruments are too large and heavy to fit into a seat.
Please note: An additional seat can be added during the online booking process by simply selecting an additional seat (per cello) and using the passenger name MR SEAT CELLO.
Pushchairs, buggies and travel cots can be taken right up to the aircraft door or steps and they're free of charge to bring on your flight. One of our crew will then take them from you and store them safely for you. You'll be able to pick them up when you land from the baggage carousel.
You can also check-in any pushchair or buggy at the check-in desk as hold baggage.
Wheelchairs and mobility aids weighing more than 60kgs (excluding battery) can be accepted for travel provided they can be collapsed into separate parts weighing less than 60kg each. This is to protect the health and safety of our workforce.
If the mobility aid weighs more than 60kg (excluding battery) the passenger will need to inform us, at least 2 days in advance via our contact centre, of the total weight of their mobility aid and also bring the operating instructions with them to the airport.
If the mobility aid cannot be collapsed into separate parts weighing less than 60kg (excluding battery) then it will not be accepted for travel.
Passengers' folding wheelchairs will be carried free of charge in addition to their normal baggage allowance. Where a passenger requires that more than one wheelchair be carried, and the second wheelchair is a sporting wheelchair, the sporting wheelchair will be carried upon payment of the sports equipment fee.
The airline will only accept groups of three or more wheelchair passengers by prior arrangement made via our call centre (for other telephone numbers visit the contact us section.)
Wheelchairs that are powered by sealed, non-spillable types of battery are acceptable for carriage on easyJet aircraft. The airline will not carry wheelchairs with un-sealed, spillable batteries.
Wheelchair facilities can be provided at the airport for passengers who are completely immobile and cannot walk unaided, or are unable to climb the aircraft steps, or cannot walk long distances. You must inform easyJet at the time of booking to arrange this service.
