If you exceed the permitted free baggage allowance by number, dimension and/or weight you will be charged €£41.72 at the check-in desk or £49.23 at the boarding gate per item each way.

Each passenger can also carry one underseat  item free of charge (max. 40x20x30 cm) – like a small backpack, briefcase, handbag, camera bag etc.

Vueling’s Checked Baggage Allowance

The checked baggage allowance at Vueling is dependent on the type of fare booked. Those purchasing the Optima and Family fare can check in one bag up to 25 kg at no additional charge.

With Vueling you can choose different bag sizes from 15 up to 30 kg and check them by paying from £8.75/21.88 € online depending on the destination and from £43.75 when purchased at the airport (only 25 kg bag).

The maximum weight of any piece of checked baggage regardless of fare is 32 kg.

Remember: adding the baggage at the ticket counter could cost you up to 50% more.
