Air Travel Luggage Disasters: Surprise Hand-luggage fees

In this series of posts, we’re sharing our top solutions to some of the most common flight-related baggage mishaps. Follow these tips to fly in safety and style:

Disaster 1: Surprise hand-luggage fees

Airlines have strict size restrictions for hand luggage, and budget airlines usually only allow passengers to carry on a single piece of hand luggage. Standard low-cost airlines, such as Easyjet allow one case measuring 56 x 45 x 25 cm, while Ryanair only permits a stingy 55 x 40 x 20 cm. Exceed these limits, and you’ll be hit with a €50 fee to check-in your case at the boarding gate.

Solution: Make sure your hand baggage meets airline dimension regulations. PELI offers a variety of cases that are the perfect fit for air travel.

The iM2500 Storm Carry On Case (55.1 x 35.8 x 22.6 cm) is the most durable hand-luggage on the market. Its versatile design makes it great for carrying clothes, cameras or other equipment, and it’s lockable for extra security. The 1510 Laptop Overnight Case (55.9 x 35.1 x 22.9 cm) includes a removeable accessory case for your laptop.
