Previously on Ryanair flights, you could take a small bag (35cm x 20cm x 20cm no weight limit) AND a large bag (55cm x 40cm x 20cm with 10kg weight limit) with you into the cabin for free.
The new rules for Ryanair hand luggage from 15th January 2018 are as follows:
- Without priority boarding:
You can take a small bag into the cabin for free, and
You can take a large bag that will be placed into the hold at the boarding gate for free
- With priority boarding:
You can take a small bag AND large bag into the cabin for free
In a nutshell, you can still take a small bag and a large bag on Ryanair for free, but the large bag will be placed into the hold if you haven’t paid for priority boarding, which costs £5 or £6.
If you don’t want to pay for the privilege of having your large bag near you during the flight, make sure you close it with a padlock before you kiss it goodbye at the boarding gate!
