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. The "easyJet Plus cardholders" or "FLEXI fare", "Up Front" 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.

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, if your luggage weighs too much, but you only realise this when already at the airport, you will be charged €14 for every additional kilogram. The maximum weight for one item of checked luggage is 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.

  • An umbrella;
  • An overcoat;
  • Crutches;
  • 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 will carry ‘small sports equipment’ weighing up to 20 kg (golf clubs, diving, equipment, skis, snowboards etc) for a fee of €42. Flying with ‘large sports equipment’ such as bikes, canoes, surfboards, kayaks or hang gliders, will cost a passenger €49. An easyJet customer can only buy a maximum of six items per booking online.

Small sports equipment (up to 20 kg):
Golf clubs, skis and boots, diving equipment, paraglider, pole vaults up to 450 cm.

Large sports equipment (up to 32 kg):

easyJet sports 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. This naturally means that pianos, drums, cellos or double basses will not meet the standards. One will, however, have no problems carrying small violins, violas, flutes, piccolos clarinets, trumpets and bugles. Each of these instruments will count as one cabin bag. 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 a special travel insurance for a musical instrument.
