The monarch hold luggage allowance is one bag of 20 kg, 23 kg or 26 kg, or 40 kg spread across two bags. A fee is charged for these allowances, which ranges from £15 to £36, one way, if booked ahead online. Prices depend on the route being travelled. Vantage Club silver and gold members are permitted to check a heavier bag of 30 kg for no additional charge. Passengers are allowed to pool their weight allowance with a companion travelling on the same booking, provided the relevant fees have been paid. So, for example, if two passengers purchase one 20 kg allowance between them, they could spread that weight across two bags.
