easyJet, the low-cost British carrier, was established in 1995 and has since offered cheap tickets for passengers to travel across Europe.

With some flights under £30 one way, many choose the affordable airline for their holiday as it became the second-largest airline in Europe (behind Ryanair) in 2014.

Yet the airline manages to keep the fares low by using additional charges for passengers such as baggage and seat reservations.

How much luggage does easyJet allow onboard for free and how much hand luggage can be taken onboard?

Passengers should always check the size and weight allowed by the airline to avoid being stuck with steep fees at the airport.

Hand luggage

Travellers on easyJet are allowed one cabin bag on the plane that must fit into the overhead locker for free.

Whilse there is no weight limit, they must be less than 56cm x 45cm x 25cm, including the wheels and handle.

If the overhead lockers are full then it will be put into the hold for free.

An additional smaller bag, such as a backpack or laptop bag, is only allowed onboard for passengers who are Plus cardholders or have a Flexi fare.

If passengers are not part of this, then it is advised to put everything into the cabin bag, as long as the passport is removed if it is taken into the hold.

Checked luggage

Each customer is allowed up to three bags to put into the hold.

They must not be more than 275cm when put together, adding up the length, width and height.

Hold bags are allowed to be 23kg, and additional weight can be bought up to 32kg.

Hold luggage up to 15kg costs up to £29.99, whilst up to 23kg costs up to £33.99.

For additional kg, it is £12 per 3kg, with a maximum of 9kg being allowed to be added.
