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.

Customs & Entry Requirements

When travelling internationally, it’s a requirement that you pass through customs. However, for domestic travel, or travel within the EU, customs is not usually required. In all cases, you will pass through security checks, to which it’s likely your ID and Documents will be checked, so it’s a good idea to have these documents ready and available throughout your journey.

Entry requirements vary from country to country. It’s very important that you research the exact requirements specific to you before you travel, as certain countries may require a visa, proof of insurance, and possibly bank statements. Your passport must also be valid for the full duration of your stay, with some countries requiring at least 6 months validity. However, all requirements will differ and are subject to your specific circumstances, such as duration of stay, purpose of travel, and the regulations that the country has set.

We recommend sourcing information about entry requirements from the country’s official websites.

Connecting Flights

Connecting flights refer to you taking multiple flights in order to reach your destination. This results in having a longer journey time, however, it’s quite common when direct services are not available.

If you have a connecting flight booked on the same ticket, typically your baggage will be checked through to your final destination. However, with potential flight delays, busy airports, and tight connections, you might make the connection, but often your baggage does not. This is why more and more travellers are travelling light by shipping their luggage ahead.

Many low-cost airlines don't offer connecting flights. This means it's your responsibility to manage your onward connections, and collect your baggage after each flight.

If you’re unsure, we recommend that you contact your airline directly.
