Ryanair: Compensation for Flight Delays and Cancellations

Ryanair's claim processing services are among the lowest. The airline tends to delay payment and deny compensation for invalid reasons and is involved in several court proceedings. However, at ClaimCompass, we make sure that when compensation is due, our clients get their money from the airline.

Ryanair Baggage Policy

Cabin Luggage

Ryanair changed their baggage policy at the beginning of 2018 in order to reduce the amount of luggage that travellers bring on board. It now differentiates between "Non-Priority" and "Priority & 2 bags" passengers. Failure to comply to this policy will result in a charge of £50 per item and the likely delay of the flight.



The only luggage you can now bring on board is a small bag (e.g. handbag, laptop etc.) which must not exceed 35x20x20cm and should easily fit under the seat in front of you. This is the basic and default service.

Your regular 10kg bag (max. 55x40x20cm) is no longer a cabin luggage: it will be put in the aircraft's hold, free of charge. Do note that it is not considered as a checked luggage, which is why it is placed in the hold at no extra cost to you. 


Priority & 2 bags

Only customers who have purchased Priority & 2 Cabin Bags, Flexi Plus, Plus or Family Plus will be permitted to bring both of their cabin bags (1 bigger cabin bag of max. 10kg and 55x40x20cm, and 1 small cabin bag of 35x20x20cm) on board. 


Checked Luggage

Because Ryanair is considered a low-cost airlines, no checked luggage is included in your fare. However, you can add a checked luggage to your trip at an extra cost. Check-in bags must not exceed 20kg.
