Ill be traveling to Europe in a few months and Im struggling to understand luggage rules for any of the flight companies, most notably Ryanair.

I’ll be traveling to Europe in a few months and I’m struggling to understand luggage rules for any of the flight companies, most notably Ryanair. I was planning on traveling with one standard 10kg carry-on suitcase, and one medium-sized backpack as a “personal item”, which I usually do not pay for when traveling in my country, it generally fits under the seat. But it seems like I’d have to pay for the backpack as if it were a 10kg suitcase in most of European flight companies. Is this truly the case? Looking at the size rules for some companies like Ryanair and Tap makes it seem like they only allow very small bags as personal items, do they actually check size and weight of these?

I’ll be doing Lisbon > Rome > Venice > Paris > London

    I've flown Ryanair a few times and have always booked on the Ryanair Discovery app. I usually go for "regular" and check in a bag and bring a backpack on flight. Never had any issues.

      That is what I plan on doing, my main gripe is that my backpack does not literally meet the size restrictions but it always fits under the seat, what I’m asking for is advice/people’s experiences with this, if they’ve ever carried a bigger backpack than what is allowed and got away with it if it still fit under the seat. I guess I’ll just have to buy a smaller bag and avoid stress.

        If it more or less looks around the right size, you will be fine. Ryanair isn't terribly picky about bags anymore. I've also never seen them weigh carry on luggage. You should be fine.

        I've traveled with Wizz a few times (Hungarian ULCC) and they've never measured my bag. Feels like Ryanair world be similarly chill about it.

    People are taking the piss with "hand luggage" nowadays. Big rigid cases exactly the maximum size allowed, just under the max weight. Not sure why anyone wasn't expecting hand luggage fees to become a thing given how much people are gaming the rules.

    With both Ryanair and easyJet if you pay for speedy boarding or the equivalent then you'll be fine with both of your bags in the cabin, it'll just mean that you have to only travel will small toiletries

        Yeah, hold onto that cope when they land at the wrong airport to save money.

          That has never happened to me and I've flown them a lot. They don't save any money at all if they do that because by EU laws they are obliged to refund everyone 100%, pay for food and accommodation if that happens. Stop larping.

        Not the anon you were replying to but Ryanair are fucking shit but they are cheap and I guess you get what you pay for
        Spend all flight having underpaid cabin crew treat you like shit and try to sell you crappy scratch cards
        Tiny amounts of leg room
        Want to sit next to the people you're traveling with? Pay us more or we'll intentionally split you up even though there's seats available
        Not to mention half of the airports they fly to are miles outside of the cities they fly to so once you factor in travel to the city you might as well have paid to go with a decent airline
        Oh and I guess most importantly because they're cheap they're always filled with the absolute bottom scum of society, everytime I've flown on Ryanair there's either been a family of chavs that have kicked off about something or a stag group going somewhere and causing mayhem. If price is your only concern then go for it - although you probably shouldn't be travelling if you're that cheap but I'd rather pay an extra few £ and fly with an airline that doesn't act like they're doing me a favour by flying me somewhere
        Thanks for reading my anti Ryanair blog post

          Never had it happen to me, either it's very neutral or fairly smiley.
          >leg room
          I'm like 186, I mostly manage just fine. At front and emergency exits the legroom is bit better.
          >next to
          If you're paying €30 for a flight, which is often less than a shitty Flixbus where the toilet and wifi aren't even working, paying 10€ extra is 33% increase of profit for the same flight for the company, it makes perfect sense. Even with mid tier airlines where you pay 400% minimum for the same flight I noticed select seating is either additional expense or part of various premium packages. Tbh it has never been an issue for me. Travelled a lot with my ex, didn't mind being separated for a few hours as I'd just read or zone out with music in my earbuds. If the flights are not full, I have been able to sit together, even at 80% capacity. Cabin crew don't actually care as long as you're not taking someone else's seat and they insist on you changing. Even asking politely will work most of the time unless you're inconveniencing the person you are talking to. Non-issue for EU flights t b h.
          >scum
          That's 100% dependent on the flight route. I think that's a more British problem. If you're flying from London to Shagaluff with 100 Deanos, no shit. I've mostly just experienced normal people.

          tl;dr
          it's kind of like being a cheap fuck and checking in at a hostel and complaining it's not a hotel - no shit

          luv ryanair, simple as

            I guess we'll agree to disagree, a decade ago I could understand the hostel Vs hotel scenario but now Ryanair are very similarly priced to the likes of B.A and easyJet these days.
            Literally not sure why anyone would travel with them but there you go, horses for courses and all that but you shou

              Because they're often the cheapest and most readily available option. I like EasyJet planes better, but they're usually more expensive + they got worse luggage policy IIRC. EasyJet and Ryanair are both budget airlines. I've gone to so many places for peanuts with them. Which makes me guess I am either lucky somehow or everyone else is overtly negative and focused on stupid shit that doesn't matter.

              Of the big three budget airlines, I'd rate Wizzair as the worst as they tend to be the most expensive and with the worst luggage policy.

    Boring, but typical American. Will you do it within a weekend?

      Those are pretty good picks for a first timer in Europe. Lisbon is a smaller, more quiet place. Great food. Rome is more busy, definitely a city that is alive, great food as well, and a bit more rough around the edges with amazing history and architecture. Venice is the most beautiful city in the world. In it's prime it must have been like stepping into another dimension. Paris is a great city despite all the memes here. Lots to see, great night life, very attractive women, lots to explore, catacombs, world class museums. Winter is the best time to visit Paris for the first time as there's not as much tourists and you won't get annoyed by huge lines in the main sights and there's less touts (which is what everyone is shitting their pants over). Also it's not overrun by tourists and locals are actually there. Spring is arguably the best period, but I recommend it after you've seen the main stuff and can just enjoy walking along the banks of Seine with spring flowers and blossom everywhere. London has similarly great night life, lots of world class stuff. Depressing to live in, but I always found it fun for a visit. Beautiful architecture.
