Spirit Airlines Carry-On Baggage


Spirit Airlines passengers are charged for both carry-on and checked bags. This is so that the airline can keep their ticket prices low. However, one personal item that fits entirely in the smaller sizer box (such as a purse, small backpack, etc) is included with your ticket. Anything larger, such as a standard carry-on bag or checked bag will need to be paid for.

A personal item must be no bigger than 45 x 35 x 20cm.

The fee for bringing a larger item onboard varies according to when the allowance is actually purchased. If purchased online during the flight booking process, the fee is typically $37. If, however, the allowance is purchased during online check-in, the fee increases to $45 as standard, it then increases to $55 at the airport or $65 at the gate.

Carry-on baggage must be no bigger than 56 x 46 x 25cm.

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.

Spirit Airlines Checked Baggage


Spirit Airlines passengers are not entitled to any free checked baggage allowance. Again, this is so that the airline can keep their ticket prices low for everyone. Checked baggage must not weigh more than 45kg/99lbs or measure more than 203cm/80in in overall dimensions.

My Baggage – Airline Baggage Alternative


In terms of flight costs, Spirit baggage are an undeniably affordable travel option. However, the absence of free baggage allowance in order to keep their costs as low as possible does mean that you run the risk of increasing the cost of your overall trip if you have a lot of luggage to bring with you. This is especially the case if you exceed the permitted weight or size allowance or book additional baggage at the airport.

Thankfully, there’s where My Baggage comes in.

My Baggage allows you to ship a massive 66lbs per suitcase 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 support team if you have any questions!

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 😊
