Ryanair Hand Baggage

As of November 1st, 2018, Ryanair passengers (we are referring to non priority passengers) are only allowed to bring in the cabin a single piece of hand luggage / bag that fits the maximum size 40x20x25 cm (it doesn't matter if the 25cm is the width or height but will need to fit undeseat). This one small cabin baggage can be either a small duffel bag or backpack. Any personal item must be placed in this bag and is not allowed separately on board as a rule. This is the only bag you can carry with you for the duration of the flight.

However, priority passengers are allowed to bring a second piece of large cabin luggage, up to 55x40x20 cm and 10kg weight limit (usually a standard trolley case that  will fit in the overhead luggage compartment). The old luggage policy which allowed for 2 cabin bags is no longer valid.

Watchout for hand luggage dimensions: RyanAir operates by a strict policy and will promptly charge 50 Euro for each baggage that will not fit the sizer placed at the boarding gate, exceeding the allowed dimensions.

Here you can find details about Ryanair's luggage policy.

Ryanair Checked Baggage

The checked or hold baggage - the one you hand over to the airline to be placed in the air carrier - is shipped for a fee. Prices vary depending on the travel period, between 8 and 60 Euro per bag and per flight segment. This means that for a return flight you will pay the tax twice and if you have a connection flight, you will pay for each separate flight segment.

We recommend buying the online luggage transport service, preferably together with airline tickets, as they are cheaper this way. If you buy your luggage at the airport check in desk or by phone, the rates will be significantly higher, with approx. 5-10 Euro per each baggage.

The size of the Ryanair luggage is not limited, which allows you to travel even with a XXL trolley case. The maximum accepted suitcase weight is 20kg but 10kg and 15kg are significantly cheaper. Ryanair does not limit the number of pieces of checked luggage up to 20 kilo per each passenger, so theoretically it is unlimited. It is important to remember that the weight of a luggage is strictly applied to each separate piece and can not be cumulated on several pieces or on several passengers.
