Volotea Cabin Baggage policy

According to Volotea cabin baggage rules, a passenger can take two pieces of hand luggage on a plane. The first may measure up to 55 cm x 40 cm x 20 cm, which includes the wheels and handles, and the second one – this one is actually a suitcase – should not exceed the dimensions of 35 cm x 20 cm x 20 cm and it has to fit under the seat. The Volotea cabin baggage should weigh a maximum of 10 kg and the passenger has to be able to place it securely in the overhead compartments.

Bear in mind that Volotea hand luggage rules are no laughing matter. The hand baggage items are not only thoroughly inspected at the check-in counter but also at the gate right before the passengers board the plane. The aim of such a policy is to ensure that the baggage complies with the company rules. If a piece of luggage is bigger or heavier than allowed, the passenger has to pay €60 per item and on the spot. There have been cases when people were not able to pay “ad hoc” and were therefore denied boarding.

Due to space limitations, only the first 75 passengers can bring their luggage in the cabin while the rest of the luggage will be stored in the cargo hold of the airplane.

Volotea check-in baggage allowance

Volotea’s passengers are allowed to check-in only one piece of luggage up to 20 kg. The price that has to be paid varies from €12 to €58, depending on how the extra allowance was booked (online, through the call centre or directly at the airport).

Volotea excess baggage police

When it comes to extra baggage, Volotea has strict rules. The passenger has to pay €12 per kilo for each route. The same price applies in all cases, no matter if the service is paid online, via Volotea call centre or at the airport.

Volotea’s policy regarding animals and pets

It is allowed to bring a cat or a dog on a Volotea flight. Other types of pets, however, are not allowed, at least according to Volotea’s luggage policy.

When booking it through the call centre you will be charged €44, and €65 at the airport.


Alternative to airline baggage fees – Eurosender


We all know that low-cost airline companies are a great choice for flying on a particularly low-budget, but on the other hand, the luggage policies of these airlines can be quite strict, thus undermining your effort to save some money on travelling. The fees for extra-baggage or for oversized or overweight baggage can add up quickly and turn a cheap flight ticket into a rather expensive one.

Eurosender provides an alternative by offering access to affordable shipping services. With our help, you will save the time spent at the airport check-in counters, avoid the hassle of carrying your luggage around and keep your travel costs low. The services are dedicated to people who go on business trips, simply want to study abroad or plan to travel without spending too much.

The basic insurance is included in the price of every shipment while the basic coverage can easily be upgraded if the sender wishes to do so. 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.
