Note: You are not permitted to upgrade a bag to a higher weight at the airport on the day of departure, excess fees will be applied to any weight over a guest’s personal allowance.

Aer Lingus Excess Baggage


If your baggage is overweight at the airport, you will be forced to pay excess baggage fees. These fees are priced per kilo and depend on your route. Excess baggage within Europe will cost €10 per extra kilo and for transatlantic flights, will cost €75 per bag.

Aer Lingus Exceptional Items


Sporting equipment can be checked into the aircraft’s hold when flying with Aer Lingus. However, items are limited to one per person and must not exceed 23kg in weight. Within Europe, sporting equipment can be carried for approximately €40 per item each way.


If on a transatlantic flight, sporting equipment may be carried as part of the free checked baggage allowance. If carried in addition, a fee of €75 per item will apply. These charges apply to bookings made online only. Adding such items at the airport will be significantly more expensive. For further information on sporting equipment, please see here.


Musical instruments can be carried by hand as cabin baggage, if within the size and weight limits. Larger items can be checked into the hold, as per sporting equipment.

My Baggage – Aer Lingus Baggage Alternative


Aer Lingus is an undeniably affordable travel option if you are travelling with a small amount of luggage off-peak. However, if you exceed the weight allowance, book baggage at the airport or travel during peak periods, you may face considerable extra charges.


Thankfully, that’s where My Baggage comes in.


My Baggage allows you to ship a massive 30kg/66lbs per suitcase or box at fantastic low rates. You’ll also have the option to pay extra for even heavier bags if you need to, and you can add as many items as you like to your booking. Shipping luggage with My Baggage allows you to bring more with you than if you were relying on a few checked pieces of baggage.


My Baggage provides a great low-cost alternative to airline baggage, with fast and convenient luggage shipping which allows you to travel hands-free. It means you’ll save yourself some time at the airport when you don’t have to check-in your bags, no waiting around at the luggage carousels on the other side and ultimately, one less thing to worry about whilst you travel. To give you that extra peace of mind, My Baggage offers £100 free compensation cover on every single shipment, which can be increased right up to the value of £1000 if you wish. Contact our customer support team if you have any questions!


Book online and My Baggage will collect your luggage and deliver it quickly and safely to where it needs to go. As well as providing a reliable door to door service, My Baggage offers luggage tracking, SMS and email notifications the entire way through. We also hope to over 200 countries worldwide!

Second Positive Experience - Recommend this Service

Second time that I have used the My Baggage service. All was smooth and on time, and the online support on a question on labels was responded to promptly and clearly. Price-wise very reasonable given the door-to-door service (when compared to excess baggage charges on flights). I would recommend without hesitation.

Super My Baggage

I have been using My Baggage for almost 3 years since my daughter went to Uni. Transporting her luggage from NI to Newcastle is much cheaper, easier and generally a lot less hassle than taking it on the plane. Tracking is super easy and even when or if you make a mistake in your booking there is a real life person to speak to who can sort it out for you 😊

Great service

I sent a large suitcase from Vancouver, Canada to a small town in upstate New York. The paperwork was straightforward. Online tracking was simple and detailed. And most importantly, they picked up my bag when they said they would—and delivered it when they said they would.
