Here you will find everything you need to know about Wizz Air baggage policy and Wizz Air baggage fees.
Wizz Air cabin baggage
Cabin baggage, often referred to as accompanied baggage, is a piece of luggage that can be taken on board and is placed in the overhead compartment or under the front passenger seat.
Wizz Air baggage policy has recently been changed and Wizz Air cabin baggage allowance now permits the passengers to take an item measuring up to 55 cm x 40 cm x 23 cm and weighing up to 10 kg on board free of charge. Previously, this item could be taken on board free of charge only if they purchased Wizz Priority.
Wizz Air hand luggage
Hand luggage is a small bag, a laptop bag or a purse that can be taken on board besides the cabin baggage free of charge.
Wizz Air hand luggage policy allows a piece of hand luggage for all passangers on board free of charge.
Wizz Air excess baggage
Excess baggage defines the additional pieces of luggage a passenger can purchase or an increased weight limit of already purchased luggage.
Wizz Air baggage price for any additional pieces of checked-in baggage purchased at the airport is €10 per kg. This fee is due at the airport if a bag weighs between 20 kg and 32 kg.
Wizz Air sports equipment fee
Wizz Air baggage policy allows the passenger to take various types of sporting equipment on flight for a fee of €30 when booked online or through their call centre, or for a fee of €60 at the airport. Wizz Air sports equipment fees are not further specified depending on the size or type of equipment.

Wizz Air musical instruments policy
The passenger can bring a musical instrument case on board which has a maximum length of 80 cm. Other dimensions of the case must not exceed 40 cm x 23 cm.
If the instrument, including its case, does not exceed the dimensions of 55 cm x 40 cm x 23 cm and the weight of 10 kg, Wizz Air baggage policy states it can be carried as cabin baggage.
Musical instruments that do not fit the above dimensions and cannot be transported as checked-in baggage can be carried on an aircraft seat after purchasing an additional ticket.
Wizz Air pet policy
According to Wizz Air baggage policy, pets are not permitted on board, except for guide dogs.
