Wizz Air is a budget airline, so while you may get affordable fares to your destination, you need to be careful with your luggage allowance. They are very strict with your hand baggage allowance, and if your bag is too big or too heavy, you’ll be subject to fees. Here’s all you need to know.

Hand Baggage Allowance

Wizz Air allows passengers to bring one piece of carry-on luggage with them, but they define this differently than most airlines.

A carry-on bag to Wizz Air is a personal item to most other airlines. It has maximum dimensions of 40 x 30 x 20 cm and should weigh no more than 10 kg. While it can have wheels, it must fit under the seat in front of you. This could include a purse, backpack, or laptop bag.

If you want to bring a trolly bag, you must add it to your booking and purchase it with Wizz Priority. The bag should be no bigger than 55 x 40 x 23 cm and weigh no more than 10 kg. These bags must fit in the overhead bin.

Bags that are bigger or heavier must be checked. You will be asked to verify your bag meets the requirements upon check-in. If they don’t, you’ll need to check them and pay a fee.


Wizz Air is strict with its hand baggage, so you want to make sure they meet the requirements in advance. Otherwise, you’ll need to pay to check it at the airport.
