Avoiding Ryan Air's baggage fees on 14 day trip in Europe

Jump to last reply

I am hoping to avoid baggage fees in my upcoming trip to Europe this June. I am just curious if others have been able to as well on a 14 day trip, 10 days in Europe (Paris, London, Dublin). If you have been able to do so on a journey of this length, do you have any specific great tips, other than the obvious plan of traveling light.

I plan to have only one bag that I carry on of the proper dimension (less than 55 cm length), and be under 10 kg. I also plan to have a light empty bag in that carry on that I will use before and after the boarding process. I will wear my heaviest clothes and dress in layers and have a jacket with many pockets as well. Any other tips or just share if you were able to do this for a 2 week trip? (checking in a bag costs about 50 euros; I am a light and frugal traveler and just want to be able to do this)
