Volotea Cabin Baggage policy

According to Volotea, each passenger can take two pieces into the cabin of the aircraft. First piece is a personal item (i.e: a laptop bag) no larger than 35 x 35 x 20cm, that must fit underneath the front seat; the second one is a hand luggage bag with maximum dimensions of 55 x 40 x 20cm. Volotea allows both of these 2 items combine a weight up to 10 kg.

Bear in mind that Volotea hand luggage rules are no laughing matter and any piece of luggage bigger or heavier than allowed has a penalty fee of €60. There have been cases when people were not able to pay “ad hoc” and, therefore, were 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

Passengers of Volotea have the option to transport up to 5 pieces of checked baggage if they need, but the maximum weight allowed per passenger is 50 kg.

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.
