It’s no surprise you’ve got a seat on one of the biggest airlines in Europe… But what about your bags?
Let us explain all you need to know when it comes to easyJet’s hand luggage allowance, including liquids and foods allowed onboard. We’ll keep you up to date about the latest easyJet checked baggage policy, including checked bag sizes, weights and associated fees.
easyJet hand luggage allowance
Each passenger can bring only one piece of hand baggage on-board when travelling with easyJet.
The easyJet hand luggage size is 56 x 45 x 25 cm including the wheels and any handles. There is no weight limit on cabin baggage.
The new easyJet cabin bag guarantee states that if you would like to avoid having your bag put in the hold in the event there is no space in the overhead bins, the maximum size should be reduced to 50 x 40 x 20 cm.
Purses, briefcases, and laptop cases are also considered one piece of luggage, therefore, they will need to be stored inside the main piece of hand luggage.
Additionally, you will have to check the extra bags if you bring more than the allowed amount of luggage and pay the easyJet airport hold luggage fee of $50/45€/£40 for each item at the check-in desk.
If you reach the boarding gate with too many carry-ons, the price increases to $63/56€/£50 per extra item.
Infants and children that do not have their own seat and travel on their parent’s lap do not have a hand luggage allowance, so their items must be stored in the adult’s baggage.
Liquids in hand luggage on easyJet
There are several rules regarding what can be included in your easyJet cabin bag and what should be left at home.
Keep in mind that the word “liquid” encompasses a broader meaning than you might first think. For instance, lipsticks, hand creams, and deodorants are also considered liquids.
easyJet’s Liquid Rules:
- The liquid must be in a container that has a volume no larger than 100 ml.
- Larger containers are not permitted even if they are nearly empty.
- All liquid containers must be stored in a 1 litre size transparent plastic bag.
- The bag must be able to zip shut and can not exceed 20 x 20 cm.
- All liquids must be presented at the security check at the airport.
- You can bring a maximum of 10 containers of 100ml.

Can you bring food on an easyJet aeroplane?
All passengers are allowed to bring food onboard with them in their carry on luggage.
It is permitted to bring drinks onboard, but they must be bought after the security gate to comply with hand luggage liquids restrictions mentioned above.
easyJet checked baggage allowance
You can purchase checked baggage allowance during online booking. Normal prices for hold luggage are between $13-$55/12€-43€/£10-£38 for online bookings and $50/45€/£40 for airport check-in.
Careful: if the checked baggage costs have to be applied at the gate, you’ll pay $63/56€/£50.
Each passenger that pays for a checked baggage can bring a maximum of 23 kg with dimensions up to 275 cm (length + width + height). You can check more than one bag as hold luggage as long as the total weight does not exceed 23 kg.
Can you share baggage allowance if travelling with another person or group?
If you’re on the same booking you can divide the weight between different suitcases. For example: two passengers with one checked bag each have 23 kg per person, but it is permitted to take one bag that weighs 20 kg and one bag that weighs 26 kg.
The only requirement is that the checked luggage together does not exceed 46 kg.
easyJet excess baggage fees only apply to online bookings and are done in $15/13,50€/£12 per 3 kg increments up to 32 kg. If you haven’t booked online, extra weight is charged at $15/13,50€/£12 per kilo at the airport.
It is recommended not to exceed 23 kg per bag though you’re permitted to carry up to a 32 kg maximum.
Sports equipment with easyJet
Passengers can take sports equipment as checked luggage at an additional cost.
Small pieces (golf clubs, snowboards, skis, paragliders, etc.) up to 20 kg cost $47/42€/£37 online and $60/53€/£47 at the airport.
Large pieces (canoes, kayaks, bikes, surfboards, etc.) up to 32 kg cost $57/50€/£45 online and $70/62€/£55 at the airport.
