Wizz Carry-on Cabin Baggage

Wizz Air charges a carry-on luggage fee, but everyone can bring one personal item — like a laptop, diaper bag, or oversize fanny pack — aboard. However, it cannot be larger than 40cm x 30 cm x 20cm, and it can’t weigh more than 10 kilograms.

If you want to bring carry-on luggage without paying an additional fee, purchase a Wizz Priority, Go, or Superior ticket. Upgrading won’t get you a better cabin, but the levels come with boarding and luggage perks.

If you don’t opt for the upgraded ticket, cabin luggage will cost you. Depending on the time of year and route, Wizz Air carry-on luggage is about 5-35€, if bought ahead of time. The cost jumps to 20€ or more at the airport. Cabin baggage cannot be larger than 55cm x 40cm x 23 cm nor weigh more than 10 kilograms.

Wizz Air ticket holders can always bring the following items aboard:

  • Blanket
  • Coat
  • Mobile phone
  • Book or magazine for in-flight reading
  • Foldable baby stroller
  • Food for baby
  • Crutches for injured parties

Wizz Excess Baggage Policies

Travelers on Wizz Air can also book extra baggage spots. However, six is the maximum, and no item can be larger than 149cm x 119cm x 171cm. In other words, if you have seven suitcases, Wizz will only let you check six, and you’ll have to find another way to get that last piece where it needs to go.

Wizz Sports Equipment Baggage Policy

For an extra fee, Wizz Air passengers can check certain sporting equipment items. If you book the space through the call center or online portal, it costs €40. If you wait to do it at the airport check-in desk, the price jumps to between €20 and €60.

Sports equipment allowed on Wizz flights includes skiing and snowboarding gear, jumping poles, golf clubs and shoes, properly dismantled and packed bicycles, diving equipment with emptied canisters, and hunting trophies with the proper veterinary certificates.

Wizz Musical Instruments

As long as it’s not larger than 80cm x 40cm x 23 cm, you can check an instrument on Wizz Air flights. If you play something small, like a flute or clarinet, and it isn’t larger than 55cm x 40cm x 23cm and weighs less than 10 kilograms, the instrument can be taken aboard as cabin luggage.

Alternative to Excess Baggage Fees

Which would you rather: lumbering through the airport with carts of luggage that will cost a fortune to check or gliding through knowing your stuff safely arrived at the desired destination — and you got it there for half the price? 

Exactly, the second one.

And that’s why luggage shipping services are awesome. People who try it once are hooked for life. Not only does it make your travel day 100 percent easier, but it costs less money! If you’re taking Wizz Air to a golf tournament, send your clubs and cleats via a luggage shipper. They’ll be waiting for you at the pro shop when you’re ready to hit the links.
