Leave your baggage hassles behind, because now you can go Hands Free on all UK outbound easyJet flights, absolutely free. Just drop your cabin bags at the dedicated EasyJet Plus Bag Drop, stroll through security stress-free, and even board the plane early. Plus your cabin bags will be one of the first onto the carousel when you arrive at the other side.

Surely this is punishment rather than an upgrade?

Most ppl actively try to avoid easyjet putting their cabin bags in the hold.
I suspect the main reason people use cabin bags is so that they can save time when boarding and exiting the plane.
No need to drop the bags off or collect them at the carousel.

The cabin bag is dropped before security control, so you can take liquids and sharp objects. Good for a camping weekend in Scotland.
I don't get it. A cabin bag is for the cabin, not the hold. I want stuff with me for the flight, plus a selection of clothes just in case my hold luggage goes missing!

Heat! OP but there are few conditions attached to this

Or so they don't have to pay anything to take a bag as is the case with Ryanair.

When travelling with a child too small to carry their own hand luggage a cabin bag is unavoidable - this is a great offer!

By cabin bag, did you mean hold luggage?
Its one bag per subscriber -so if 2 adults and 2 kids you need 4 phone contracts. Not much of an offer honestly if you travel with people without their own 3 contract. It also does NOT cover the inbound flight...only free on the UK outbound leg

No I meant hand luggage - my 18mth old can't carry his stuff in a cabin bag so we need a hold bag to put his stuff in (along with the rest of mummy's stuff too!).

Why?

It's not sleazyjet who handle the baggage - it's the airports.

That statement is even more confusing than the first one...

I do it so the sleazy airport staff won't kick around my expensive camera, laptop and other things I packed into the cabin bag to keep them safe.
This works if you want to save on luggage charges. Putting the bag in the hold at the airport means you can still take another bag onboard, full size rucksack or another cabin size wheelie. Save hold charges on a smaller case and no issues with liquids etc. It's a no brainer if you were paying for a hold bag

Even if you pay, you get to put a bag in for £5 each way. If I'd have known about this on my last trip I'd have saved £38 in hold luggage charges......£48 if I'd have used this offer!

If they damage your bag they will sort it out. I just got my replacement, I can't fault the replacement (I chose it as the bag offered wasn't expandable), it took a few weeks to arrive, just don't put a case in the hold that cost more than £75 where at all possible. No point, they all get knackered the same way!

Great deal OP!

Yes but only Ryanair and easyJet (as far as I know) sometimes force people to put their hand luggage in the hold.

It's not who actually picks it up and moves it that's relevant, it's the fact that people want their hand luggage with them so there's no waiting around at baggage carousels after the flight

Yeah, but that wasn't my point.

What was your point then?
Worst deal I’ve seen in ages, should be cold as Siberia. EasyJet always want as many customers to put their hand luggage in the hold as possible, because there is a shortage of space on board, and offer this free if requested at the check-in desk anyway. To offer this as a “deal” for Three customers is a p**s take.

The important thing to remember is that this offer is for CABIN luggage in the hold.

"To qualify your cabin bag must be within our normal maximum dimensions of 56 x 45 x 25cm (including handles and wheels)."

It's the destructible stuff, laptop, camera, etc. that goes in my cabin bag and I don't want that going in the hold, even for free!

You're missing the point. Put 1 cabin size bag in the hold with your liquids/heavy/non-valuable stuff and put your other stuff in another wheelie bag or rucksack and take that onboard You put 1 x cabin bag in the hold and take 1 x bag into the cabin still. Easyjet only allow 1 x cabin bag, putting 1 in the hold let's you take 2 bags for less than paying for a case in the hold (or with this deal, free!!)

Yes, but also it means they don't have to worry about liquids and size. Easyjet also don't allow an extra laptop/handbag like most other airlines, so could be handy.

Saw a guy in front of me at check-in get stung with having to pay to check his bag because the wheels didn't quite fit, despite presumably buying the bag specifically so it would fit in the cabin. Would have got away with it if he'd just checked in on the app...

Ah, that last bit it quite a catch. That will screw quite a few people over I'd imagine.
We are flying with Easyjet in November to Prague, we have not yet paid for Hold Baggage.

I wonder if we can use this for the flight out, then only pay for Hold Baggage on return...
Top tip for people who don't think this is a good deal..... Don't use it!

It's free and optional

T&Cs for this offer state "You can bring a small under seat bag on-board (no bigger than a small handbag or laptop bag)."
Presumably depends on the size of the laptop!
This is valid only for UK outbound flights. I think if you travel within UK and you book with two separate transactions (different booking numbers) you will be able to use it for the outbound and return journey. Can someone check this?

Exactly. They are trying to pass this off as being a perk when in reality it only benefits them when they run out of cabin space..

I always refuse when they ask if I can put my hand lugage in the hold... errr no thanks! Once the plane lands i wanna get out of there asap!

Yeah agreed! Not sure why this is hot; when Ryanair force people to put heir hand luggage in the hold everyone moans about it! Just because EasyJet charge for the privelage people seem to think that an offer of having it for free is a hot deal
Essentially this saves you a fiver ("Hands Free service on outbound flight"), and you have to be travelling alone for it to be worthwhile, unless everyone in your party has a phone contract with Three.

Looks like they changed the T&C's but to be honest I don't think there is any way they could police that at all. At gatwick, the bag drop is self-service with less than a handful of staff.....
Every time I have flown with a budget airline, I have always been given the option to place the cabin bag into the hold luggage..... for free. I don't see how this is a deal??
This will be fantastic for us - flying with EZY to Iceland, hand baggage only. Alcohol is crazy money over there but this means I can stick a bottle of wine in each bag and drop them off, and not need it checked in on the way back. The 4 of us in the house are all on 3 Contracts

I can see it being fairly limited in benefit though, as that's probably a slightly uncommon example!
