Jet2 cabin baggage

Cabin baggage, often referred to as accompanied baggage, defines the piece of luggage that passengers can place in the compartment above their seats under the seat in front of them.

Jet2 cabin baggage allowance permits the passengers to carry one piece of cabin baggage free of charge on board. The policy states that Jet2 cabin baggage should not weigh more than 10 kg and measure more than 56 cm x 45 cm x 25 cm, including all wheels and handles.

Jet2 hand luggage

Hand luggage is a small piece of baggage, such as a backpack/purse, laptop or camera bag, which can be taken onboard free of charge in addition to cabin baggage.

Jet2 hand luggage policy states that each passenger is permitted to bring an additional small item on board if such an item can be stored in the overhead compartment or under the seat in front.

Jet2 checked baggage

Jet2 baggage allowance permits every passenger to book up to 3 bags of checked baggage per flight. The Jet2 baggage cost, in this case, depends on the chosen destination as well as on the way of booking (online, via call centre or at the airport). The passengers should note that the three bags can weigh 66 kg altogether and that this amount can be split between the three pieces of luggage. However, the Jet2 baggage policy states that no single item of baggage can weigh more than 32 kg.

Jet2 baggage cost if checked baggage is booked at the airport is £45 per item as well as any additional excess baggage charges.

Jet2 excess baggage

Excess baggage defines the additional pieces of luggage a passenger can purchase or an increased weight limit of already purchased luggage.

If the passenger tries to check in a bag exceeding the allowed weight, Jet2 excess baggage fee in the amount of £12 per kg needs to be paid.

Jet2 baggage policy states that an additional fee needs to be paid when booking special types of baggage. The Jet2 sports equipment fee depends on the type of sports equipment. Ski equipment, golf bags, and bicycles will be charged from £25 per flight and each item weighing up to 20kg.

In case the weight of the special luggage exceeds the limit allowed, Jet2 baggage policy states that an excess baggage fee must be paid.

Alternatively, such item can also be checked in as hold luggage if it is properly packed, starting from a fee of £25. Such item should not weigh more than 22 kg and its maximum size can be 182 cm x 91 cm. If the musical instrument in question weighs more, the Jet2 excess baggage fee in the amount of £12 will need to be paid. However, the maximum weight of the instrument cannot exceed 32 kg.

Moreover, Jet2 baggage policy also states that larger instruments, such as a guitar or cello, may be taken on board if an additional seat for the item is paid. The item must weigh less than 65 kg and must not exceed the top of the seat by more than 30 cm.

Choosing a low-cost airline is a good option when travelling on a budget. However, the costs can significantly increase if you have many items that you want to take with you.

The services are dedicated to people who go on business trips, study abroad or simply go on vacation.

Every shipment has a basic insurance coverage included in the price of the shipping and it can be upgraded to higher coverage, based on your needs. We only work with the most reputable logistics providers in Europe, so you can rest assured that your belongings are in good hands. The door-to-door shipping service gives you the convenience of travelling light, without breaking the bank.
