Tools in handluggae on easyjet?
Buy toiletries when you get there? Or take small ones that are within the limits? Superdrug have a pretty impressive range of mini-toiletries for travelling…
I’d think allen keys would be just about OK, and I’m fairly sure I’ve had pedals in hand luggage before, but that was an internal BA flight. I can’t see why they’d object to disc rotors, but the AJ might be considered a dangerous weapon!Posted 8 years ago
Do you mean 32kg total or for the bike? I’m guessing total. If so don’t worry you’ve got 20kg still to play with at no charge. in easyjets conditions of carriage it says…..
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.
From this link section 10.
Pring this out and take it with you to the airport. I’ve never had any trouble with this to show them. You can start taking things again now!Posted 8 years agouplinkMember
cynic-al – the above posted by steveh is correct
We had their CS director at Luton confirm it to us & his staff last year – the problem is most of the check in staff don’t seem to know this rule so make sure you print it all out & push it under their nose if the argue [not easy abroad]

There’ll be a Boots [or similar] air-side, just buy your Lynx there
32kg is the total weight including your bike ;
Payment of the additional fee increases your checked-in hold baggage allowance (including additional item) to a maximum weight of 32kg.
you can take up to 50kg but you will have to pay excess baggage costs on everything in excess of 32kgs
saying that Jet2 did nt weigh our bikes last week at either Leeds (outward) or Geneva (return)Posted 8 years ago
Gooner not correct, the terms in my post above increases that limit to 52kg with bike and luggage. Not everyone knows hence print it out and take it with you. The bolded bit in previous post is the key, bikes are expempt from excess charges so as long as it’s below 32kg for manual handling regs and your suitcase is under 20kg you’re fine.
Cynic al if you had to pay excess baggage then get on to them and claim it back. As uplink says they don’t know their own rules.Posted 8 years agoyounggeoffSubscriber
Hi all, I’ve just been on the phone to easyjet 08712 882236 and spoke to Claudio who was very helpful and steveh is correct. As long as the only thing in the bike bag is the bike i.e. sporting equipment it’s exempt from excess baggage charges so you can have your 20Kg hold bag and up to 32Kg of bike in a bike bag 🙂Posted 8 years agofoolishmiraclesMember
A mate of mine had his allen keys confiscate on one flight
SteveH – just to confirm then, youre saying that you can have 20kg luggage and 32kg for the bike? I did that last year and got seriously ripped off for excess baggage charges.I emailed Easyjet 5 times on return from my holiday only to be told that that was correct and that they have a “no refund policy”.How did you claim your fees back?Posted 8 years agooliverd1981Member
The maximum we’ve been allowed is 32kg total. Easyjet don’t weigh your hand luggage however, I got 18kg in mine… I once had to dismantle my multitool at security. Apparently Allen keys are OK, but Torx and Screwdrivers are a no-no. Wobbly multitools aren’t much fun…Posted 8 years ago
foolish miracles – yes thats right the bit i posted above clearly states that bikes are exempt from charges for excess baggage once the fee is paid. Getting your money back now will be very difficult I imagine. If I had to pay and get money back i’d issue a small claims court against them for it, which they won’t defend (and if they do their terms back you up) and you will win. Luckily i never had to though.
Oliverd1981 – again you definitely have 52kg total they just don’t know their own rules well enough.Posted 8 years agodaves mumMember
Anything that could be seen used to cause damage is not too good an idea. The airline isn’t relevant as it isn’t easyjet who scan your hand luggage. I would have thought a pump would be ok, but screwdrivers and allen keys are a bit dubious.
Slightly off topic, but I frequently fly with a laptop bag full of cables, electronic boxes, ecu’s, etc and very infrequently get asked about it…. when I tell the nice german security man ‘getriebe ecu’, they just let me through and on my way.Posted 8 years agoduirMember
For hand luggage do not risk it. In my experience of UK airport security (which is extensive to the tune of 5-6 times a week) they are just getting worse and worse and worse. One of my cabin crew last week had to argue for 15 minutes to get her decanted yoghurt through staff search. The amount of yoghurt was not in question but the tub it was in had too high a value in ml on it. The guy just would not budge even though the tub was clearly 1/4 full so what hope do you have for obscure mtb tools and bit!!!Posted 8 years ago
