Wizz Air is about the make a drastic change to their hand luggage rules, so if you are planing on flying with the Hungarian low cost airline, make sure to know their new hand luggage rules before you do you booking, just to skip surprises. With the introduction of their new rules the hand luggage concept will be changed, and that is what makes it important to know about.
Until know you could freely bring hand luggage as you travelled with the different low cost airlines, as long as the size did not exceed 55x40x20cm. Now Wizz Air changes their hand luggage policy, and as of know you will have to pay for hand luggage larger 42x32x25cm. This size is small enough to fit in under your seat, meaning that if your hand luggage does not fit in under the seat, you will have to pay to use the space above your head.
The price for the large hand luggage is 9 GBP or 10 Euro. So you should therefore be aware of these rules, and try to keep them, because the fines to be paid on the spot are normally quite a lot larger than if you arrange with the reservation of luggage before you arrive to the airport.
For more information about the luggage policy, read the following article about the new hand luggage rules from Wizz Air published by Budapest Guide.
