Heads up- Easy Jet T&Cs change
This is the rule I fell foul of in 2008. For some reason they didn't really notice it at Gatwick; my excess baggage charge was £25. But on the way back, the Nazis at Geneva Airport slugged me for £180 to get my bike back.
To be fair it was my DH bike and it weighed 32kg on its own (the bike plus bag, not the bike on its own!)Posted 7 years agotragically1969Member
At the bottom of section 10:
(1) Carriage of bicycles:
The bicycle must be packaged in a bicycle box or bag
Only one bicycle per bicycle box or bag will be permitted
No other items can be carried in the bicycle box (i.e. clothing)
The handlebars must be flush with the frame
The pedals must be flush against the frame or removed
Passengers travelling with bicycles are recommended to check-in 2 hours prior to departure. Bicycles are subject to the sports equipment fee and exempt from any excess baggage charges relating to the weight of the bicycle.Posted 7 years ago
EDIT: Geetee..Did you get a refund? Your bike would have been exempt from any charges.
OK this is really bad **** news! The miserable c**ts at Geneva airport; robbing thieving **** wan**ers; they should all be tried at the Hague and sentenced to have their genetalia removed with rusty cheese wire and then nailed to the front of the airport until so fetid they cause a f****ing public health scare and cause the place to closed and bulldozed.
Nazis the coc*ing lot of them!
No I didn't get a refund. I argued the point with them and they turned around to me and said I could please myself but my bike wasn't going anywhere until I paid them £180.

The only slightly confusing part IMO is the bike fee allows you a 32kg item and the hold fee allows you a 20kg item, however there's an overall limit of 50kg per passenger so personally I wouldn't push the individual item limits or you might need to ditch 2kg of stuff at the airport if they do check the combined the weights (they didn't seem to when I flew with them last year but then I was a few kg under on both the bike and bag).
The key part to show easyJet staff if you do get any hassle is the specific bike exclusions at the bottom of section 10Posted 7 years agoTeetosugarsSubscriber
The way I read it, was you can have 1 piece at a maximum 32kg- IE yer Bike( Only paying for the Bike… not 20kgs +12kgs)
And 1 other piece of baggage at 20kgs…
When I flew to the Alps thats what happened for me with BMI.
They charged me £17 for my bike to fly..Posted 7 years agoSpokesCyclesMember
