Baggage Policy

If flying with Ryanair, you should know the airline's luggage rules to avoid any last-minute surprises or unexpected costs. This post will go through the Ryanair baggage Policy in depth, including the allowable luggage size and weight, over-baggage prices, and more.

Hand/Cabin Baggage Policy

Only priority boarding passengers can take one small bag (40cm x 20cm x 25cm) plus a giant cabin bag (55 x 40 x 20cm) with a maximum weight allowance of 10kg into the cabin free of charge.

Non-priority customers can only bring one small bag (40cm x 20cm x 25cm) that must fit into the sizer. If non-priority customers want a second giant bag, they can purchase a lower-cost 10kg check-in bag when booking online. However, it must be checked in at the airport bag drop desk before reaching airport security.

NOTE: Bulkhead seats lack under-seat storage, so all carry-on and cabin luggage must be stored in the overhead compartment during takeoff and landing.

Checked Baggage 

The airline permits passengers to carry checked-in baggage. However, this differs from fare to fare. In addition, luggage can be of a maximum of 20kg weight. Moreover, each passenger can purchase up to 3 checked bags. Furthermore, the airline does not permit baggage transport over 32kg or dimensions 81 x 119 x 119cm. Lastly, the capped baggage costs  €/£ 20.99 to €/£ 59.99 according to the travel route.

Ryanair Sporting Equipment and Musical Instruments

Passengers may check-in sporting equipment and musical instruments as hold luggage, alongside other checked baggage, as long as it does not exceed 20kg or 30kg for bikes.

The fee for these items ranges from £35-£60 per item, one way, booked online, or £40-£75 one way, booked at the airport. Prices vary depending on the item in question.

Ryanair permits passengers to carry smaller musical equipment, such as guitars, violins, etc., in the cabin. Moreover, passengers can also purchase a seat for musical instruments for an appropriate fee. In addition, musical instruments can be carried in the aircraft hold. Furthermore, the allowance for the same is 20kg per item. Lastly, if any musical equipment exceeds the weight allowance, a baggage excess rate of £/€ 11 is applicable per kg.
