Low cost airline baggage fees dissected - INFOGRAPHIC

Back to news


Travelling with low-cost airlines? This infographic may well be your best friend next time you're packing you bags.

For 16 popular low-cost airlines we compared their baggage allowances, costs and fees and bring you the ultimate guide for your next trip. Did you know it can actually be cheaper to pay for your friend to fly with you and carry a piece of baggage, rather than pay up to £135 in Ryanair fees? Or that leaving toiletries at home and buying replacements when you get to your destination can be cheaper than taking them with you?

To help make it all clearer, WhichAirline.com went through the costs related to checked-in baggage and the fees for excess weight from various airlines in Europe and put it all together in one infographic. Check out our infographic and find out how to save and what to avoid.
