Ryanair’s luggage rules have changed in a bid to reduce the flight delays due to over-sized luggage, so what baggage can you take on a Ryanair flight now?

We’ve compiled a quick and easy guide of everything you need to know about the changes.

What are the changes and how is it different to the old rules?

Whereas you were previously allowed two bags on board, you are now still allowed two bags however the largest must be placed in the hold. This will be free of charge if it is less than 10kg and no bigger than 55cm x 40cm x 20cm, if not you will be charged £50 or refused boarding. Alternatively, Ryanair have lowered the price of checked-in luggage and raised the allowance.


When will this change come into effect?

November 1st 2017

What if I want two carry-on bags on board?

Your best option would be to pay £5 for priority boarding (at time of booking, or £6 up to 1 hour before departure). With priority boarding, not only are you allowed on the plane first, you’re allowed two bags on board – a cabin bag up to 10kg and a hand bag. There will be two queues at airports, Priority and Non Priority customers.

Hang on, what about duty-free?! Can I still bring a duty-free bag on board?

Don’t worry, you can still carry on one duty-free bag free of charge.
