EasyJet baggage allowance
All passengers travelling with EasyJet are allowed one free carry-on bag with their ticket. The dimensions of this, including the handle and wheels, must not exceed 56 x 25 x 45cm. If your bag is larger than this, you will be charged £40 to have it stored in the hold.
On some EasyJet flights for reasons of space on board your hand luggage will be stored in the hold at no extra charge.
Important information for travellers to Italy: On all EasyJet flights to and from Italy, carry-on bags will no longer be stored in the overhead lockers, but under the seat in front. Your carry-on bag must not be larger than 45 x 36 x 20cm (smaller than the standard cabin bag allowance).
All luggage and boxes must adhere to weight and dimension restrictions. Anything over the below could incur additional fees.
EasyJet passengers can book up to 3 checked bags per person. A standard bag is 23kg, but there is a cheaper alternative with a limit of 15kg (available online only). The maximum total size for any checked bag is 275cm (height + width + length).
You can reserve checked baggage online or at the airport. Online, the cost is £9.49 – £42.49 depending on your route and the season. At the airport this rises to £40, and at the boarding gate it will cost you £50 per item.
If your bag exceeds the weight or size limits, you will have to pay for excess baggage up to a maximum of 32kg.
If your bag is more than 23kg but less than 32kg, you can pay for excess baggage to ensure that it is transported on the plane.
The best way to do this is online in advance of your flight. The price is £3 per kg online, but £12 per kg at the airport.
If your bag weighs more than 32kg it will not be accepted on the plane.
