Monarch Baggage Allowance & Excess Luggage Fees

Check monarch baggage size restrictions and fees before you travel.

monarch Carry-on allowance – scheduled flights

Monarch allows each passenger to carry EITHER one item of hand luggage, with maximum dimensions of 56 x 40 x 25 cm and a maximum weight of 10 kg, OR two items weighing no more than 10 kg and not exceeding 56 x 40 x 25 cm combined. A small duty free bag may also be carried on board.

if your bag is overweight/ oversized

If hand baggage is found to exceed these allowances at the boarding gate, it will be placed into the hold and an airport hold baggage fee of £36 will be charged. The passenger will also be charged a £50 penalty fee.

monarch Checked-in baggage – scheduled flights

Passengers are permitted to check in hold baggage up to 20 kg in weight (infants are permitted 10 kg in hold luggage). Fees for checking in hold baggage range from £15 to £40, one way, if booked ahead online. Prices depend on the route being travelled. The 20 kg allowance may be spread across a maximum of five items of luggage, on payment of each bag fee.

Vantage Club silver and gold members are permitted to pay for 30 kg of hold luggage.

Passengers are allowed to pool their luggage 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 bag between them, they can share the 20 kg allowance.

monarch excess baggage fees

Excess baggage charges apply if a bag is over its pre-booked allowance. These charges stand at £30 for the first 3 kg overweight, and £10 per kilo thereafter (these are airport charges).

No bag must exceed 32 kg.

exceptional items

Exceptional baggage, such as golf clubs and bicycles, can be checked into the hold. This can be booked online at a cost of £25 per item.
