Woman finds Dealz pack that is perfect for getting away with Ryanair’s luggage allowance

Ellen Fitzpatrick

Brb, going Dealz.

Going on holiday these days is more hassle than it needs to be, with flights being cancelled or delayed all over the place, luggage allowances at their strictest and queues that go on for hours.

While there isn’t much the everyday holiday goer can do about these issues, there is one way we can beat the system and while it might not solve each one of these, it’s certainly a start.

Paying for extra luggage while going on holiday is one cost we all try to avoid like the plague, and one Irish woman has managed to find a way around this.

Sharing a luggage bag she discovered in Dealz, it can be a gamechanger when it comes to Ryanair flights and managing to keep our costs down.

On a typical Ryanair flight, we’re allowed to take one piece of carry on luggage with us, but the catch is that it must be able to fit under the seat in front of you.

TikToker @sam_an_tha_g has beat the system after she found a cheap bag in Dealz that is the “exact size” that is allowed on the airline but manages to fit all your necessities.

Claiming the bag is roomy and “fit loads in”, it’s definitely worth a try for only €6.

She said: “Girls, don’t walk, run to Dealz. Look at this. It’s like the exact size that Ryanair allows you, and I’d say you could fit loads in there and get away without having a checked bag.

“It’s literally an under the seat bag, it’s got the perfect sizes for Ryanair. €6 in Dealz girls, run!”

Showing the bag off on camera, the label reads that it is an “under seat cabin bag” and measures 40cm x 20cm x 25cm.

According to Ryanair’s website, they say: “All passenger fare types include a small personal bag, which must fit under the seat in front of you. The maximum size of a small personal bag is 40x20x25cm.”

According to the woman who is going viral for this hack, she purchased the bag in the Dealz in Bray on June 24th.
