Baggage

Excess baggage

Get your holiday off to a relaxed start without leaving anything behind by choosing one of our extra baggage allowance packages. 

Pre-booked excess baggage

If you get to the airport and your bags weigh more than you have reserved then you will be charged an excess baggage fee. Thanks to our extra baggage allowance packages* with simple, convenient booking in advance, you can save up to 50% compared to excess baggage rates at the airport. You will also receive a special rate when you book at least 30 days prior to departure.

The best way to increase your allowance is online and avoid higher charges at the airport, see table below for details and head over to Manage My Booking to pre-book online. Excess baggage can be booked up to 8 hours before your flight departs, for more information about our Travel Zones click here.
