Beat those airline luggage fees!

In previous posts I’ve discussed how to bag amazing travel deals with Wowcher and Groupon, to ensure you keep costs low you’ll want to invest in the correct luggage to prevent yourself being hit with those pesky luggage fee’s cheap airlines love to hit you with! If you’ve never flown with Ryan Air before here is some helpful information on their luggage requirements:

All passenger fare types include a small personal bag, which must fit under the seat in front of you. In order to avoid the extra fees you’re going to want to take the essentials away with you and hopefully fit everything you need into this sized luggage:

Ryan Air has one of the most stringent cabin baggage policies so if you’re able to purchase luggage that fits their requirements you’ll be good to go with any other airline! If you’re travelling on a shoe string beating luggage fees can be one way to guarantee you’ll stay on budget. I will admit it can be VERY difficult to try and fit everything you need into one cabin bag, I’ve only managed this once on my trip to Tallinn as I was only visiting for 2 nights and didn’t need a massive amount. I think 3 nights is probably the maximum amount of time away you would be able to pack for but hey you might be a really lightweight packer and could teach me a thing or two about minimising luggage!

I’ve put together some of the best cabin luggage deals I’ve found, for full disclosure these items do include affiliate links.

  1. This Aerolite cabin bag starts at only £11.49 and is available in black, charcoal, rose gold and wine. It’s slightly less boujee than I would like personally but the biggest appeal is the bag is cheaper than the extra fees!!
  2. If backpacks are more your thing this Cabin Max travel bag may be for you! Personally I’m more of a Fjallraven Kanken kinda girl but they can be super pricey so this is definitely a great alternative.

3. This Daabliz travel flight bag is lightweight, waterproof and a pretty cute alternative to the Aerolite cabin bag.

4. Finally my favourite is this Eastarer laptop backpack which would be perfect for business trips.

I hope I’ve given you some inspiration on combatting the luggage fees and saving yourself some money. One final tip is to always make sure you check the luggage allowance and the dimensions given by the airline as this tends to differ dependent on the airline you are flying with. Some airlines are more lenient than others, not naming anyone in particular but I think you can guess from my previous posts…
