- Year of past OR future Camino
35cm x 20cm x 20cm? Have yet to see anyone walk with anything this small. What is it? 10 l.?A summer Camino usually means smaller backpack which can fit under seat meaning no need for extra charge.
Thanks for the article, very interesting and very useful.

Anyone who has flown out of Santiago with Ryan Air has already had to check their pack. This means a reduction in price for these people. As to the disadvantages the article lists.... how alarmist. But I’m glad to heave learned about the changes.
The small print I read says that the one small bag has to be under 5kg. If you do not want to pay to have your bag in the cabin they will put it in the hold, as you go to boarding gate. Their argument is that too many passengers are arguing about space, of which there is not enough, and this is delaying takeoff. If they think this will sort it out...A summer Camino usually means smaller backpack which can fit under seat meaning no need for extra charge.
Yes, Domigee. Precisely that. You can check the previous response or just google Ryanair baggage fees.When flying with RyanAir, I always check my bag and I have to pay extra for that.
Now.... I could just turn up at the gate with my rucksack and they'll put it in the hold free of charge?
Sounds good to me if that is the case
Just booked Ryan Air Frankfurt Int. to Porto and went ahead and paid priority boarding. This way, our back packs come on board with us, we have reserved seats and we can put a smaller bag with poles, etc. in the checked luggage without any more fees. RT for 2 people came to 224€, which was still half the price of any other airline.
Sorry to be pedantic, but if you read the announcement on their site you will get your answer. Can you look up your backpack online, usually they give technical specifications... you should already have received emails from Ryanair about the issue as you have already made bookings. It is a tossup, makes life easier slightly if you pay the fee, and it is not that much.I already have three reservations on Ryanair after my Camino. I carry only my backpack (40 or 50 L) which I have had no problem last year with the airline. Will I have problems this year unless I buy priority boarding or ??
It is hard to measure the dimensions of backpacks.
