Passengers can bring one personal item with them when they travel with Wizz Air. They call this a carry-on, and it must fit under the seat in front of you. If you have a bag you want to put in the overhead container or check, you will need to pay a fee. These are not flat, and they vary based on the details of your flight. Here’s what you need to know.

Price of Wizz Air Baggage

Wizz Air stays so affordable because they make money on the fees they charge, including for checked bags. How much you will pay for your luggage depends on the date of your trip, how you bought it, and how much your items weigh. Bags during high travel season are more expensive as are bags purchased in person at the airport.

Typically, you will pay between €5 and €130 per piece of checked luggage. You can get a slight discount if you add Wizz Priority to your fare and have a piece of hand luggage or a trolly bag you want to place in the overhead bin. It comes complimentary with this add-on, in addition to priority check-in, boarding, and your carry-on item.


It’s difficult to know exactly how much Wizz Air will charge for your baggage before booking because the price varies based on different factors. You will get the best deal if you purchase the bags online prior to your departure. You can add a bag up to three hours before you leave should you need to add luggage to your trip.
