Travelling without a weight limit? Must be the next best invention since the internet! Thankfully, amidst all of the unreasonably overpriced airline baggage charges that forces one to fit his entire bedroom, or worst the entire apartment in a single suitcase, there’s that angel that came down from the aviation heavens in the form of EasyJet.

EasyJet’s Hand Baggage Allowance

Passengers who have booked an Up Front or Extra Legroom seat or paid to add a large cabin bag to their booking can bring on board one piece of hand luggage.

Baggage allowances are kinder compared to the standards of a usual fleet at 56x45x25cm (including handles and wheels).  It is nothing short of great unless (as seen on their site) your bag does not fit the overhead locker and will be needing assistance taking it out, or else you are doomed. What can perhaps help when your compulsion of over-packing for a trip takes place, is that they do allow one additional small bag under the seat in front of you with a maximum size of 45x 36x 20cm. And lo and behold, there is no weight restriction for small cabin baggage.

EasyJet’s Checked Baggage Allowance

Still, for the restless soul who probably will not be at peace unless they pack their Christmas tree, a month’s worth of groceries, and their entire library there is such a thing called “hold luggage” or for the rest of us simply put, check-in baggage. As long as it is 275cm in length, width, height, and weight totaling to 23kg you are good. You can buy extra weight in 3kgs units, up to a maximum of 32kg per bag. Okay maybe leave the Christmas tree and around 10 books behind but not those extra British pounds for additional charges. 

Items that are prohibited onboard 

Despite the angel that they already are, EasyJet does not allow explosives, knives and or sharp objects, radioactive materials on board, and other materials (please see site for full listing) that might compromise everyone’s safety including yours.

To avoid carrying around additional 5 complete outfits complete with 6 pairs of different shoes for all four seasons (you do not have to bring those ice skating shoes do you?) and remains to be unworn on your trips, we highly suggest to plan your necessities ahead of time and pack as light as what an expert Jetsetter would, and nobody would be able to tell you flew with a budget airline!
