Cabin bags

Hold luggage >

Everyone can bring one small under seat cabin bag per person on board for free.

It can be a maximum size of 45 x 36 x 20 cm (including any handles and wheels) and must be kept under the seat in front of you. That should be enough to bring all the essentials for your journey or for a short trip. Your bag can weigh up to 15kg, but we do ask that you’re able to lift and carry it yourself.

If you’d also like to bring a large cabin bag on board (max. 56 x 45 x 25 cm, including any handles and wheels), you have the option to book a large cabin bag for your flight. Every customer who books a large cabin bag can also enjoy the benefit of Speedy Boarding.

If you’re an easyJet Plus member or customer who has booked a FLEXI fare, you can also bring a large cabin bag on board (in addition to your small cabin bag) as part of your membership or fare benefits. See below for full details.

Please note that the maximum number of cabin bags available per person is two; one small cabin bag for all customers and one large cabin bag for customers if it’s included with their fare or membership benefits or where they have paid to add one to their booking.

Remember - purchasing all your bags online is cheaper and will help you avoid paying bag fees at the airport and your cabin bags being placed in the hold.

This video explains our cabin bag policy, including which bags you can bring on board, how big they can be, and where they need to fit. Please make sure you check your cabin bag allowance before you travel to avoid any unexpected charges.

If you choose not to select a seat when you book, our system will automatically allocate your seat when you check in and will aim to seat you next to others on your booking. Please be aware that if you’re auto-allocated an Up Front or Extra Legroom seat, your cabin bag allowance will be one small under seat cabin bag.

Check your cabin bag size

We check cabin bag sizes before you board. If your cabin bag is bigger than the maximum size allowed or if you bring a large cabin bag to the departure gate without the correct seat selection or without one pre-booked for your flight, it won’t be able to go in the cabin. We’ll have to check it into the aircraft hold and charges will apply.

So it’s important to check your cabin bag allowance before you travel to avoid any unexpected charges. See the bags table on our Fees and Charges page for full details.

If you’re unsure whether your cabin bag fits within our maximum dimensions, you can use our handy bag sizing tool on our app (iOS only). Simply open the app and click on your trip itinerary to find the bag sizing tool. You can then use your mobile phone camera to size your cabin bag. If it fits inside the maximum cabin bag dimensions for the bag type you’ve selected, you’re good to go. However, the bag sizing tool should only be used as a guide, the best way to know if your bag will fit is by measuring it with a tape measure (the old school way) before travel.

If it doesn’t fit, don’t worry! You can always change your seat or hold luggage quickly and easily through our app or within Manage Bookings.

Hold luggage

Each customer (including children and infants) can buy up to three hold bags.
A standard hold bag is 23kg. You can buy extra weight in 3kgs units, up to a maximum of 32kg per bag.


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

This means that the total weight allowance can be split among the total number of bags booked, as long as no single item weighs more than 32kg. Maximum total size (length + width + height) = under 275cm.

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

Luggage 15kg

15kg bag

The smart choice for a short break.

Luggage 23kg

23kg standard bag

If you're going away for a little longer our standard bag is the perfect choice.

Luggage 32kg

Up to 32kg bag

For those who pack everything except the kitchen sink.

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.
