Best Luggage for Ryanair UK 

By  Enda

Thanks for taking your time to read our information on the best luggage to use on Ryanair flights. Just below we have shown the current Ryanair baggage allowances in 2021.

Ryanair Baggage Size 2021

40 x 20 x 25

All passengers can bring 1 small personal bag on board which must fit under the seat in front of you (40cm x 20cm x 25cm). Examples include, handbag, laptop bag or small backpack.

Priority & 2 Cabin Bags is an option they offer and means you can board the plane via the Priority Queue and carry the small personal bag (40x20x25cm) and a 10kg wheelie bag (55x40x20cm) on board.

Check In Luggage (Hold) 

Non-priority customers who wish to bring a second larger wheelie bag (10kg weight) must purchase the 10kg Check-in Bag. The size restriction on this bag is 55x40x20 cm. The price will vary depending on the route and travel date.

They also have a 20Kg check in option. The size restrictions are 81cms (height), 119cms (width) and 119cms (depth). This bag will however go in the hold and can not be carried on.

Those are tight restrictions when compared with other airlines, but those are what are currently in place.

Ryanair Cabin Baggage Small Bag Allowance 

There are really only a couple of bags suitable for this size. We have shown these below. They do both come in a variety of colours so at least you have some choice. You can of course also bring a handbag, a laptop bag or a small backpack as long as it meets the size criteria of 40 x 20 x 25 cms.

Basic Hand Luggage Rules for all Airlines

Hand luggage is referred to by different names such as hand luggage, carry on luggage, and cabin luggage. It is the bag that you can take with you on to the flight and keep it in the overhead cabin or under the seat in front of you.

These are restricted in size and in weight, and none of the airlines have exactly the same restrictions so it can all get very confusing.

When airlines refer to size they mean from the top of the bag to the ground including the wheels. That is very important as many travelers assume it just refers to the actual size of the bag. Each airline has a cage at check-in and if it doesn't fit inside that, it will have to be checked in, and likely result in a charge.

It is also worth noting that on very busy flights, there may not be enough room for everyone's hand luggage. Airlines then have the right to put your hand luggage in the hold, free of charge, but you will have to go to the baggage carousel to collect your luggage.

Ryanair Cabin Baggage 10Kg Bag Allowance 

Priority & 2 Cabin bags is an option you can book. Non-priority customers must purchase the 10kg Check-in Bag. The size restriction on this bag is 55x40x20 cm and a weight restriction of 10 Kg.

So if you do either of these you can then carry on the small bag plus one of these bags.
