Ryanair 2023 Baggage Allowance

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

Ryanair Baggage Allowance
Ryanair Baggage Allowance (Priority) - My Baggage

Ryanair Cabin Baggage


As of November 1st, 2018, Ryanair’s baggage policy has changed. Only priority boarding passengers will be permitted to take one small bag (40cm x 20cm x 25cm), plus a larger cabin bag (55 x 40 x 20cm) with a maximum weight allowance of 10kg into the cabin free of charge.

Non-priority customers can only bring one small bag (40cm x 20cm x 25cm), that must fit into the sizer. If non-priority customers want to bring a second bigger bag, they can purchase a lower cost 10kg check-in bag at the time of booking online. It must be checked-in at the airport bag drop desk, prior to reaching airport security.

If you are a non-priority customer and have not already added a 10kg bag to your booking, but would like to, you can purchase one at the airport bag drop desk for an extra fee.

Duty-free bags are permitted in the cabin along with your cabin baggage.

Please note: there is currently conflicting information regarding being able to take Trunki hand luggage on as cabin baggage. It is best to contact Ryanair directly regarding this.

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

Ryanair Checked Baggage


Each passenger can purchase up to 3 checked bags of 20 kilos. These can be purchased either when making the initial booking or can be added to a booking up to 2 hours before the scheduled flight departure time.

Checked bags are charged per person, per one way flight and prices vary depending on the route and travel dates. Higher baggage fees of €40 per person/per one way flight apply when checked bags are purchased after the initial booking. Higher baggage fees also apply when checked bags are purchased via a Ryanair call centre, at airport ticket desks, during peak periods and on selected routes.

Ryanair Excess Baggage


If your checked bag weighs more than 10kg or 20kg (depending on which you have booked), you may purchase excess baggage up to a maximum of 32kg and this can only be purchased at the airport ticket desk. Excess baggage will be charged at £11 per kg.

Ryanair Sporting Equipment and Musical Instruments


Passengers may check-in sporting equipment and musical instruments as hold luggage, alongside other checked baggage, as long as it does not exceed 20kg or 30kg for bikes.

The fee for these items ranges from £35-£60 per item, one way, booked online or £40-£75 one way, booked at the airport. Prices vary depending on the item in question.

My Baggage – Airline Baggage Alternative


Ryanair is an undeniably affordable travel option if you are travelling with a small amount of luggage offseason. However, if you go above the weight allowance, booking baggage at the airport or travel during peak periods, you may face considerable charges.

Thankfully, that’s where My Baggage comes in.

My Baggage allows you to ship a massive 30kg/66lbs per suitcase or bag 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 luggage.

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 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 ship to over 200 countries worldwide!

I cannot recommend MyBaggage enough

I cannot recommend MyBaggage enough! I was very skeptical at first but I am so glad I trusted them because the process was incredibly smooth & easy & affordable and now I have my luggage taken care of! I was afraid of the customs forms and the whole customs clearance dynamic but it was super easy and without any issues. They also have the best customer service: I have emailed them at midnight and got a response in 15 minutes. 1000/10 for MyBaggage

Absolutely delightful to work with drivers…easy to prepare and very convenient service. Such a relief for my 86 year old mother not having to worry about getting transport to pick her at the airport with the large amount of luggage.

Second experience was even better than the first - once I knew to take inventory *before* closing everything up. Seriously though, this is so smooth and heaps less expensive than alternative shipping options. DC>Sussex, England in 2 days! FL>Sussex in 3 days! Amazing.

Reliable, most affordable and efficient

We booked my baggage to pick up a box from Portugal and deliver to the UK. Even though I don’t think it’s guaranteed we received a call to tell us a two hour window of when the box would be collected. The service was extremely simple, printing off the labels and putting them on the box. The service took quicker than the expected time and was delivered safely to its address. We will use this service again.

solid service would use again

everything was very smooth and instructions were clear and precise. My baggage arrived with no problems just a few days later. it was very good to have this service be so easy and convenient. Would use again! make sure you have access to a printer and tape, but they explain everything. the customs was very easy to fill out too.

Everything went as expected.

Easy and no bs shipping of luggage from US to Europe (Denmark). I was shipping my duffelbag back home after travelling in the US for a while. The bag arrived before the expected day, and the experience from purchasing, to customs handling, to shipping was perfect. Everything went as expected.
