Transavia 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.

For a guaranteed cabin transport, Transavia baggage policy allows luggage of a maximum size of 45 cm x 40 cm x 25 cm weighing up to 10 kg.

However, the Transavia cabin baggage allowance includes a suitcase measuring up to 55 cm x 40 cm x 25 cm instead, but the cabin transport for that one is not guaranteed. This means that in case overhead compartments are full, the luggage could be transported in the hold free of charge.

Transavia hold luggage

Transavia luggage allowance permits the passengers to check in 5 bags weighing maximum 50 kg. Transavia baggage policy states that the maximum weight per bag can be 32 kg.

Transavia 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 ends up taking more hold luggage than booked, extra hold luggage can be purchased. Transavia baggage policy states that in such case, an excess baggage fee of €15 per 5 kg needs to be paid if booked at the airport.
