Trunki on Wizz Air – Free Hand Luggage

Trunki on Wizz Air – Free Hand Luggage

If you’re flying with Wizz Air this year and planning to take a Trunki as hand luggage you need to know if a Trunki is allowed as hand luggage before you arrive at the gate. Wizz Air claim to be the largest budget airline in central and eastern Europe operating routes to and from the UK from London to Belfast, Glasgow to Bristol and other regional airports across the UK but sadly their Trunki policy is far from a friendly one. As of November 2018, Wizz Air updated their baggage policy to limit the amount of hand-luggage its standard ticket holding customer could take on board. Wizz Air now deem the Trunki, the family friendly, child’s luggage companion too big to take on board for free.

Can you take a Trunki on Wizz Air

Of course you can take a Trunki on Wizz Air, you can take your kitchen sink if you are so inclined, however unlike most airlines, you’ll now have to pay for the privilege. Wizz Air have limited its free carry-on luggage to just 40 x 30 x 20cm meaning the Trunki, whilst only narrowly wider and taller, is some 6cm longer than the permitted maximum size of Wizz Air hand luggage and it won’t fit in the baggage sizer. Arrive at the gate with a Trunki as a non-priority ticket holder with a child and a Trunki and you’ll be charged the prevailing rate for a trolley bag or hold luggage item (£14 or £17.50) respectively.

When Ryanair updated their baggage policy early in 2019, it was heavily criticized for adding further charges to customers wanting to travel hand luggage only and like Wizz Air it has also stopped customers travelling with a Trunki for free. Whilst neither Ryanair nor Wizz Air allow the Trunki on board for free, Wizz Air are not quite as strict on free hand luggage allowances with their 24ltr allowance versus just 20 for Ryanair customers.
