Hold luggage explained

This video explains the easyJet hold luggage policy, including your allowances and any costs for exceeding them. Remember, although there is a charge for each hold item, it's always cheaper to book hold luggage online or via our customer service team before you arrive at the airport.

Cabin bags and hold luggage

All customers can take ONE cabin bag on board. There’s no weight limit but we do ask that you are able to lift it into the overhead locker.

You can bring an ADDITIONAL under seat bag if you’re an easyJet Plus cardholder, FLEXI fare, Up Front or Extra Legroom customer, or if you’re travelling with an infant (under 2) on your lap.

Cabin space is limited and on many flights there isn't enough room for everyone's cabin bag on board. If the overhead lockers are full we will put your bag in the aircraft hold.

We check bag sizes before you board. If they’re bigger than the maximum 56x45x25cm (including handles and wheels), they can’t go in the cabin and we’ll have to check them into the aircraft hold for a charge. (See fees and charges)

Hands Free


Additional cabin items

As well as your cabin bag, you’re allowed to bring some extra things into the cabin.

e.g. umbrella, overcoat, crutches, walking stick, one standard shopping bag of duty free goods bought at the airport

Additional under seat bag

Under seat bag

Maximum size: 45cm x 36cm x 20cm. 

For easyJet Plus cardholders, FLEXI fare, Up Front or Extra Legroom customers only.

A smaller bag, like a laptop bag or handbag that you store under the seat in front of you.

Cabin bag allowance

Cabin bag

Maximum size: 56cm x 45cm x 25cm, including handles and wheels

Squeeze in just enough for a weekend away. Cabin bags should be placed in the overhead lockers (or if small enough under the seat in front of you).

If the lockers are full, and your bag is the correct size, we’ll put it into the aircraft hold for free.

Hold luggage allowance

Maximum total size (length + width + height) = under 275cm

Each customer including children and infants can buy up to three hold bags. A standard hold bag is 23kg (for new bookings made from 15 November 2017)*. You can buy extra weight in 3kgs units, up to a maximum of 32kg per bag.

Infants booked to travel on an adult’s lap cannot add hold luggage.

If you’re travelling with family or friends on the same flight and booking, you can pool your total weight allowance.

No single item can weigh more than 32kg.

We've got new bag options to suit every kind of trip:

  • 15kg bag. The smart choice for a short break.
  • 23kg standard bag. If you're going away for a little longer our standard bag is the perfect choice. Available to buy from 15 November 2017.
  • Up to 32kg bag. For those who pack everything except the kitchen sink.

*If you made your booking before 15 November 2017 and bought a 20kg hold bag our new bag policy will not affect your booking and your bag allowance will remain 20kg.
