I received notification this morning that Ryanair have changed their cabin bag policy and at first I was horrified!
I have recently booked flights to Porto with Ryanair from Liverpool Airport for a fabulous price of only £220 return for the 5 of us at half term. I decided to be brave and only travel with hand luggage it was after all my New Year’s resolution to do this more! Anyway I digress!
So you can imagine my panic when I received an email from Ryanair this morning titled ‘Important Notice regarding our cabin bags policy’. I immediately presumed that they were going to charge me more to take a cabin bag on the plane and that my ‘cheap’ trip was suddenly going to cost a lot more money!
Initailly it looked like this was going to be the case. The email suggests that f you want to bring 2 cabin bags on board you must add Priority & 2 Cabin Bags at an increased cost.
However it goes onto say that if you arrive at the gate with 2 cabin bags, and you haven’t purchased Priority & 2 Cabin Bags, your second bag will be taken off you and put in the hold free of charge.
Phew!! No additional cost and actually less hassle than trying to find a space for it on the plane. I also think it will help boarding times and mean planes take off quicker as people will have less bags to faff around with.
The downside being that you have to wait for it at the other end.
What do you think to the change??
