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

With Pegasus, additional fees for oversized or overweight cabin baggage are applied. The rates are different for domestic flights and international flights.

Pegasus baggage allowance is 15 kg for domestic flights (within Turkey) and 20 kg for international flights. The following travel packages offering different Pegasus baggage allowance are available:

  • Basic – including only one piece of cabin baggage weighing up to 8 kg;
  • Essentials – offering 15 kg of baggage allowance on domestic flights and 20 kg on international flights and flights to Cyprus as well as 8 kg of hand luggage;

Airlines checked baggage
Pegasus excess baggage

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

Additional Pegasus baggage allowance can be purchased online up to 2 hours before the flight. The fees applied when purchasing excess baggage online are lower than those offered at the airport and vary depending on the destination.

Pegasus baggage policy states that extra fees must be charged for luggage weighing more than the Pegasus baggage allowance and these fees depend on the destination, the time left before the flight and the way of purchasing (be it online, via call centre or at the airport, the latter one being the most expensive).

Alternative to excess baggage fees

Shipping your luggage with Eurosender instead of carrying it with you might be a more affordable alternative. Check below the total cost of shipping your luggage. Our services are also suitable for shipping sports equipment or musical instruments.

Alternative to airline baggage fees – Eurosender

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 going on business trips as well as to people who 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 a 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 traveling light, without breaking the bank.
