Wizz Air cabin luggage: everything you need to know

Wizz Air is currently the leader of the low-cost market in Central and Eastern Europe and a very good alternative to travel across Europe and even Asia (eg Tel Aviv and Dubai). But in terms of luggage, you have to be careful: over time they were famous for odd luggage dimensions, high surges, inflexibility in enforcing a rather strict policy and frequent changes to luggage size. Therefore we recommend you check for new rules before your flights.

As of November 1st, 2018, Wizz Air passengers are only allowed to bring on board only one small piece of hand luggage that fits 40x30x20 cm. Priority passengers can bring one additional piece of large cabin luggage limited to 55x40x23 cm and 10kg. Hold luggage is paid and the price depends on many factors such as:

  • flight time (crowded or not),
  • of destination,
  • by luggage weight (on horseback, luggage <23kg is cheaper than over 23kg)
  • the time / place where the baggage service is purchased (online is the cheapest option)

We recommend that you preferably purchase the Wizz air hold baggage service online, together with your flight ticket. Otherwise, if you buy this via the call center service or directly at the airport, the prices will be increased significantly.

Travelkit Recommendation for Wizz Air passengers : Buy a piece of luggage that fits 40x30x20 cm for your Wizz Air flights, and use it to carry your travel documents, money and valuables, no matter of you buy the Wizz Priority service or not. This small piece of luggage should be always kept close to you. You can use your larger suitcase as a checked (hold) luggage or as a priority cabin baggage in case ti fits the size.

Wizz Air hand baggage

The hand baggage is the one you take with you on the plane and it is free, provided it is in the dimensions of 40x30x20cm - Wizz Air hand baggage. This can be either a duffel bag or a backpack. Additionally, Wizz Priority passengers can bring on board an extra piece of luggage up to 55x40x23 cm and 10kg . Note, 42x32x25cm is the old cabin luggage zise and is not accepted anymore. Also, an additional personal item is not allowed and should be placed in the luggage.

The dimensions quoted above are the maximum accepted for free hand baggage and must include all baggage, including the wheels and the handle. Baggage check is carried out with a luggage checkbox (located at both the check-in counter and at the Wizz Air boarding gate), and if your luggage does not fit into that frame, or if parts of the luggage remain out, you will be forced to pay a hefty surcharge. Please be aware that Wizz Air staff is quite inflexible in this respect, and hand baggage is often a cause for heated discussion or even scandal over Wizz Air flights.

We recommend that you carefully measure the baggage you want to travel with and make sure that the external dimensions (including the wheel + handle) are correct. If you do not have or do not want to buy a piece of hand baggage that fits Wizz Air's luggage policy , you can use one or more (up to 6 / person) pieces of hold luggage for a fee.
