Ryanair, Jet2, Easyjet passengers warned over 'three pairs of shoes' rule

Passengers have been urged to follow "simple yet effective shoe rule" when packing hand luggage. Jet2, Ryanair, Easyjet and TUI are known for the airline's strict and stringent luggage restrictions and rules for their passengers and holidaymakers.

With Jet2, you can take one piece of hand luggage onboard free of charge, as long as it weighs no more than 10kg and is no larger than 56cm x 45cm x 25cm (including wheels and handles). Ryanair allows you to carry a small personal bag (40x20x25cm), which must fit under the seat in front of you and a 10kg bag (55x40x20cm) onboard, to be stored in the overhead locker.

Easyjet says: "Everyone can bring one small under seat cabin bag per person on board for free. It can be a maximum size of 45 x 36 x 20 cm (including any handles and wheels) and must be kept under the seat in front of you. That should be enough to bring all the essentials for your journey or for a short trip. Your bag can weigh up to 15kg, but we do ask that you’re able to lift and carry it yourself."

TUI says: "You can take 1 piece of hand luggage per person (excluding infants) weighing up to 10kg and with maximum dimensions of 55x40x20cm on a TUI Airways flight. You must be able to lift your hand luggage into the overhead storage compartments yourself.

"You can bring a Trunki case as hand luggage, as long as it weighs no more than 10kg." But ahead of the summer holiday season, a "simple yet effective shoe rule" could help you stay within the parameters of what you are allowed to take, an expert has said.

Gabriel Miller, an expert at Gatsby Shoes, pointed out that shoes can be the bulkiest and sometimes heaviest items in your suitcase. Therefore, Gabriel recommends limiting how many you take with you. "Packing efficiently not only eases the stress of travel but also helps you navigate different situations with ease, safe in the knowledge that you have a shoe for every occasion," said Gabriel.

"The concept is simple yet effective: limit yourself to packing no more than three types of shoes for any trip. This approach not only saves space but also encourages thoughtful packing."
