Ryanair Changes to Hand Luggage Charges

Ryanair customers were just getting used to the idea of paying €5 to get priority boarding and keep their hand luggage in the hold. (That change was only introduced in January this year.)   See January 2018 Rules here

Now Ryanair have announced further changes to the charges and rules for hand luggage /  cabin bags . These changes will take effect on flights after November 1st 2018 – regardless of when they were booked.

A Summary of the new Ryanair hand luggage rules :-

Customers who pay  for priority boarding (€6/£6) – will see no change. They will still be allowed to bring two free “carry-on” bags  into the cabin (one 10kg wheelie bag and one small bag) . There will be a slight increase to the maximum size of the smaller bag  to 40cm x 20cm x 25cm.

Non-priority customers will still only be able to bring one free, small cabin bag on to the aircraft measuring 40cm x 20cm x 25cm (a small increase from the current 35cm x 20cm x 20cm) – which must go under the seat in front of you.  After November, there will be no free bags put in the hold.

If non-priority customers want to put a 10kg bag into the hold they will need to pay €8 at the time of booking, or €10 at any point after booking.
Non-priority customers who have not added a bag to their booking  before they fly will have to pay €20 at the airport bag drop desk or €25 at the boarding gate for a 10kg wheelie bag .
