How to maximise your Jet2 baggage allowance and avoid extra luggage fees:

1. Pack like a minimalist

We’ve all been in the situation where we actually only wear 30% of what we’ve packed. So why not save yourself the extra luggage and pack your suitcase or hand luggage smart to begin with? Our essential packing list is a great place to start. If you’re ready to take it to the next level, read our 15 best ever packing tips: have you ever used packing cubes before?

2. Buy luggage before you get to the airport

If you have 22kg in your case, our packing tips and wearable luggage can help you – but sometimes it’s better to admit defeat and invest in hold luggage before you get to the airport. It’s 50% cheaper to buy in advance, rather than paying £45 when you get caught at check-in.

3. Use wearable luggage

A Rufus Roo can carry 10kg of luggage, including books, laptops, and handbags. Slip it on over your clothes and you have an extra 10 kilos added to your hand luggage: now amounting to 22kg on Jet2 flights (without having to pay the fees). There are plenty of other wearable luggage options too.

4. Invest in a new cabin bag

We’ve reviewed the best cabin bags on the market, so that when you invest in a new bag it will fit most major airlines restrictions. There are backpacks and wheelies to suit every type of traveller – and these bags have all undergone rigorous testing from the Skyscanner team. Here’s the full guide to hand luggage restrictions on board most airlines with flights departing from the UK, including easyjet, Flybe, Aer Lingus and Thomson.

5. Choose an airline with restrictions that suit you
