Although cabin baggage rules are strictly defined in terms of size and weight, there are a few little tricks that can help you make the most of your airline's limit.

According to several specialized websites, quoted by the Majorca Daily Bulletin, Ryanair's hand luggage rules have areas where passengers can find advantages.

Although only one item of hand luggage is officially allowed, there is no prohibition on carrying multiple items of clothing, such as multiple T-shirts or a winter coat, during boarding.

Once you're seated, you can easily remove these extra clothes, saving space and keeping your carry-on weight down.

For those who want to take things to the extreme, there are also specially designed jackets or clothing that promise to provide extra space for up to ten extra kilos.

In addition to the hand luggage allowance, passengers can also have a bag from the duty-free shop.

No pillows on board Ryanair

However, it is crucial to know the specific rules of each airline. For example, Ryanair does not officially allow items such as pillows or neck pillows to be brought onto the aircraft in addition to hand luggage.

Violation of these rules may result in the payment of additional fees, if the airline staff decides to apply them. It's important to note that some airlines may have more permissive policies regarding pillow boarding without problems.

If you feel that the hand luggage restrictions are too strict, Ryanair also offers the option of a checked bag.

For a fee starting at 18 euros, passengers can book a 20-kilogram bag.

However, it is essential to be aware of possible additional charges that may apply depending on the route, season or busy periods such as holidays, Easter or Christmas. Depending on these variables, the cost of checked baggage may vary and may reach up to 50 euros at the time of booking a flight.
