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 a small cabin bag (maximum size 45 x 36 x 20cm) on-board when travelling with easyJet with no weight limit. It includes items like a small trolley case, handbag, rucksack and laptop bag. There is no weight limit on small cabin baggage.
Passengers who have booked with an Up Front or Extra Legroom seat or paid to add a large cabin bag to their booking can also bring on board a large cabin bag. The easyJet large cabin bag size is 56 x 45 x 25 cm including the wheels and any handles.
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.

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 $10.30-$48.70/8.99€ and 55.99€/£6.99-£42.49 for online bookings and $55/50€/£45 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 buy extra weight in 3kgs units, up to a maximum of 32kg per bag. You can check more than one bag as hold luggage as long as the total weight does not exceed 23 kg. If you’re travelling with another person or group on the same flight and booking, you can pool your total weight allowance.
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.
