easyJet hand luggage policy
Hand luggage defines a small piece of baggage, such as a backpack/purse, laptop or camera bag, which can be taken on board free of charge in addition to cabin baggage.
Passengers are allowed to take only one cabin bag on board. However, according to the easyJet baggage rules, the weight of this bag is not limited – it only has to fit into the overhead locker. EasyJet Plus cardholders and Flexi, Upfront or Extra Legroom customers may bring one more piece of additional easyJet baggage on a flight and store this item under the seat in front of them. An additional piece of baggage with the maximum dimensions of 45 cm x 36 cm x 20 cm is also allowed if the passenger is travelling with an infant under 2 years old.
easyJet checked baggage allowance
Passengers flying with easyJet (including children and infants) can purchase up to three hold bags (also called checked bags). A standard hold bag cannot weigh more than 23 kg. This rule applies for all bookings made after November 15th 2017.
|Weight||Online||At the airport|
|Up to 15kg||9,09-45,49€||N/A|
|Up to 23kg||12,34-48,74€||50€ at the check-in desk, 60€ at the boarding gate|
easyJet excess baggage policy
Passengers have to pay 15€ for each 3 kg of extra luggage if purchased online, either during the initial booking or after the booking process.
However, at the airport the fee changes and EasyJet charges 15€ per kg. Please note that a small bag of 15 kg cannot be heavier than 27 kg, while a standard bag of 23 kg cannot be heavier than 32 kg.
Alternative to excess baggage fees
Have you ever considered shipping your luggage instead of carrying it around the airport and overpaying extra baggage fees? In many cases, this is not only the more affordable but also the more convenient solution. With Eurosender’s help, you can even ship sports equipment or musical instruments to your desired destination in Europe.

easyJet additional carry-on item
The additional accessories that an easyJet passenger is allowed to bring onboard free of charge are:
- An umbrella;
- An overcoat;
- Walking stick;
- One standard shopping bag of duty-free goods bought at the airport.
easyJet sports equipment allowance and fees
The rules regarding the easyJet sports equipment allowance make it possible for a passenger to fly with one piece of sports equipment (one piece per customer).
EasyJet divides sports equipment in small (up to 20 kg.) and large (up to 32 kg.); as long as not of the items weighs more than 32 kg, a customer can pool the weight of the checked baggage and the sports equipment (i.e.: a customer with allowance of 52 kg can bring a hold baggage of 28 kg and a piece of sports equipment of 24 kg)
|Price online booking/per flight||Price booking in the airport/per flight|
|Small sports equipment (up to 20 kg): Golf clubs, skis and boots, diving equipment, paraglider, pole vaults up to 450 cm.||42€||56€|
|Large sports equipment (up to 32 kg): Bicycles, canoes and kayaks, windsurfers and surfboards, hang gliders.||56€||62€|
easyJet musical instruments policy
The easyJet musical instruments policy states that a passenger is allowed to take on board one instrument smaller than 30 cm x 120 cm x 38 cm, so it can be placed in the overhead locker. Violins, violas, flutes, piccolos clarinets, trumpets and bugles fall into this category and count as one cabin bag each. It has to be clear that the easyJet baggage policy will not permit a passenger to carry two cabin bags, which means that they will have to choose between their luggage and their instrument.
To bring a large musical instrument like a cello on board a plane, a passenger will have to buy an extra seat for it. When booking a seat for the instrument, one will also need to add “Mr Seat Cello” as a passenger´s name. For safety reasons, these instruments can only be placed in window seats while their maximum height including the case is 110 cm. Alternatively, a passenger can also buy a hold luggage allowance and have their instrument transported in the cargo area.
Any instrument larger than 30 cm x 120 cm x 38 cm, for example, a double bass or harp, can’t be taken on board the aircraft as cabin baggage. Passengers wanting to fly with these will, therefore, have to add them as hold luggage to their booking. In such cases, easyJet luggage fees apply. easyJet also recommends that the traveller buys special travel insurance for a musical instrument.

If you want to travel hands-free and avoid spending a fortune just to take a musical instrument on a trip, you can simply choose to ship it instead.
