Get 1/2 Price Hold Luggage on Easyjet return flights

Found 13th Nov
OK, Not strictly a deal, more of a glitch in the system, but -

1 - Book an Easyjet RETURN flight without any hold luggage.
2 - Call Easyjet (0330 365 5000) and ask to add hold luggage to your OUTBOUND flight only. This will be about 50% of the cost of adding both ways. Because you cannot do this on their website, you will not be charged any additional fee.
3 - Wait for the email confirmation to arrive, and you will find that the allowance has been added to BOTH flights ***. It seems that (at present at least) the system doesn't have the flexibility to add just the one flight, either that or the operator is too lazy to change it.

*** - This is indicated by the 'Luggage' icon on your eTicket and this will be on BOTH boarding passes. See in red below.

I did this again today, but it has always worked for me, even with expensive sporting equipment, although they may change this loophole if it proves to be a popular option. Good luck!

How much is your hold luggage?

I've got a flight booked for next May with EasyJet. If I got in-app to add hold luggage it's showing as £15.99 per 20kg bag, each way.

This is on the website. I don't have the app.

The cost for BRS-PMI is just over £43 for both ways, but when I called I had it for £22.

just spoke to them. No option to add one way hold luggage to my flight in May to Greece.

Hmm, that's a shame Kris. I wonder what the difference is then. I have done this on flights to Mallorca many times.

Thanks Voucher.Boy. I just tried this on my return flight and it has added the icon to the outgoing flight too. Great. 😋

Thank you.

I have already booked few weeks ago can I still do it?

yes, you can add luggage anytime after booking and before departure..

Just tried this as I don’t think we have anything to lose. Obviously got to wait until 30 days before check in for our June flight to see if the suitcase icon appears on the return boarding card. If not we’ll just add return baggage on then. Worth a punt - thanks OP

Seems to be an IT issue which probably could get fixed easily !

Yeah, you're right of course John, but it's a balance between development costs and lost revenue. Fingers crossed it takes a while before they figure it out eh!
