EasyJet 2020 Baggage Allowance and Fees

If you’re travelling with easyJet on an upcoming flight, here’s everything you need to know about your easyJet baggage allowance, restrictions, fees and charges.

Easyjet Baggage Allowance

EasyJet Cabin Baggage

Passengers are permitted to bring one piece of hand luggage as a carry on that will travel with them in the cabin. There are no weight restrictions on this baggage, however, it must be 56cm x 45cm x 25cm including handles and wheels and fit within their baggage gauge.

EasyJet Plus, FLEXI fare, Upfront and Extra Legroom customers can bring an additional small bag (such as a handbag or laptop) at a maximum size of 45cm x 36cm x 20cm and must be placed under the seat in front.

You can also opt for Hands Free, which places your cabin bag into the hold. Simply drop your cabin bag off at the Easyjet Plus Bag Drop and you’ll get your bags first off the carousel. This costs £7 per passenger or £16 for a family bundle which can include up to 6 people.

Hand baggage is free. However, if it is larger than the size restrictions, the Bag Drop desk will charge you £40 to check the bag into the aircraft hold. If you go straight to the boarding gate and your bag is oversized, you will be charged £50.

*Important notice for passengers travelling to and from Italy

Italian regulatory authorities will not allow passengers travelling to and from Italian airports to place luggage into the overhead lockers. Passengers will instead only be allowed to bring on one small bag only, no larger than 45cm x 36cm x 20cm, to fit under the seat in front.

If your cabin bag is larger than this, it will not be permitted on board. Visit the easyJet Bag Drop before you pass through Security, and it will be placed in the aircraft hold for free, provided it is within your standard cabin bag allowance (56cm x 45cm x 25cm). If you arrive at Bag Drop or the departure gate with hand luggage larger than this, the standard bag charges will apply.

Need to purchase a suitable hand luggage case for your upcoming flight? We recommend this, available on Amazon, as they are approved by most airlines.

At the airport bag drop, you will be charged £37 per hold item weighing up to 23kg. At the boarding gate, you will be charged £47 per hold item weighing up to 23kg

EasyJet Excess Baggage

If your hold bag exceeds the weight allowance of 23kg, you can pay to increase your allowance up to 32kg; which is the maximum that can be accepted.

EasyJet Sporting Equipment and Musical Instruments

To take a musical instrument into the cabin, it must be smaller than 30cm x 120cm x 38cm and placed in the overhead locker. A slightly larger musical instrument can be placed in the cabin, however, you will be required to buy a seat for it.

Any musical instrument larger than 30cm x 120cm x 38cm will be placed in the hold.
