There are different fees for each item. It costs €50 to check in a hand glider, surf board, bodyboard or diving equipment on a short haul flight, and €100 on a long haul flight.
Can I take ski equipment on board a Eurowings flight?
Yes, and it’s actually free providing that the overall weight does not exceed 30kg. This includes the board, skis, stints or snow boots.
How to maximise Eurowings’s hand baggage allowance
1. Upgrade to a SMART fare with Eurowings
If you purchase a SMART Fare instead of the basic with Eurowings, you’ll be able to take two pieces of hand luggage on board instead of one (your max weight now amounting to 16kg). You’ll also receive a free piece of hold luggage amounting to 23kg, a snack on board, and your preferred seating.
2. Learn how to pack light
Are you heading on a weekend away to Berlin, or a business trip in Bonn? Consider what you really need on the flight. Can you squeeze a weekend into 8kg? With our packing guide, you’ll see a capsule wardrobe is the way to go, and you definitely don’t need to bring all of those electrical items. You should also check out the laptop and tablet ban on UK hand luggage on flights moving between certain countries – it’s certainly one way to cut weight off your hand luggage.
3. Upgrade your hand luggage
If you’re still heaving round an old duffel which weighs more than the contents you carry, it’s time to consider upgrading to a lightweight, cabin-friendly bag. These numbers from CabinMax and LoweAlpine will carry you straight through the weekend. See the full list of cabin-approved (and Skyscanner approved) hand luggage.
4. Book with a different airline
With only 8kg allowed in hand luggage, and an optional 23kg hold luggage you will have to pay for, there are slightly more generous options when it comes to choosing an airline with a hefty baggage policy. British Airways offer 23kg in the cabin alone, as do KLM. Even Flybe offers 10kg, whilst hold luggage with them is also an add-on. You can find all of the airlines baggage restrictions on Skyscanner.
5. Experiment with wearable luggage
It’s not the most comfortable way to fly, but these wearable luggage jackets and waistcoasts will save you plenty of money on checking in a bag, or being stung with baggage fees. The Stuffa can hold 5kg of clothing, and the Rufus Roo can carry up to 10kg more of electrical items too – bringing your total allowance without checked luggage to 17kg or 22kg, depending on which you choose.
