Vueling Baggage and Carry-on

What is Vueling’s policy with regard to the hand baggage allowance?

Vueling allows each passenger to carry one piece of hand baggage and one extra item free of charge, as well as one additional bag with duty-free purchases.

What is Vueling’s policy with regard to checked baggage allowances?

Depending on the fare purchased, passengers may have a free checked baggage allowance or not when traveling on Vueling flights:

  • Basic Fare – no free checked baggage allowance.
  • Optima Fare – a free checked baggage allowance of 1 piece up to 23 kg.
  • Excellence Fare – a free checked baggage allowance of 2 pieces up to 23 kg each.

Hand Baggage

The piece of hand baggage passengers may take on the plane free of charge is limited in weight and size. It must not exceed 55 x 40 x 20 cm and 10 kg (Basic and Optima fares).

Only the purchase of the Excellence fare allows passengers to take hand baggage weighing up to 14 kg and guarantees space on board for their hand baggage.

The extra item, such as a small briefcase, a handbag or camera, must be significantly smaller than the piece of hand baggage. Smart luggage will be accepted as hand baggage only if the batteries, which must be 100 Wh or less, are removed and carried separately in the cabin by the passenger.

If you’re flying with a baby, everything your baby needs must be carried inside your hand baggage.

All hand baggage is verified at the boarding gate, and if it exceeds the limits (amount, weight or size), it shall be removed and stored in the cargo hold of the plane, at an additional charge of €40 per item each way.

Excess Baggage

Each passenger can check in a maximum of 3 pieces of baggage (including the free piece(s) with the Optima and Excellence fares), each weighing up to 23 kg per item. It’s much easier and cheaper (up to 40% discount) to check in your luggage online (via website or mobile app). From the moment you buy your ticket, you can add baggage online or by calling Customer Services.

Baggage Services

If your baggage is missing or gets damaged in any way that affects its function of protecting the contents, you must fill out a Property Irregularity Report (P.I.R.) at the lost property office of the arrival airport. You can trace the status of your missing baggage online. If the missing baggage is not found after 5 days, you must fill out the Lost Luggage Questionnaire online.
