My husband and I are travelling with Ryanair in a few days. We have both paid £40 each for 15kg of checked in baggage. Ideally, we would like to use just one case between us and put our 30kg allowance in the one bag. This will save a little weight off of our allowance as obviously we would only have the weight of one case and not two (hope this is making sense so far...stick with me!)
On their website is states the following:
'No pooling or sharing of baggage allowances is permitted, even within a party travelling on the same reservation. Pooling of an individual checked baggage allowance is not permitted even if you have two items of checked baggage (each item must be within its own prepaid weight allowance).'
I am confused as to what this means exactly and getting more confused by other posts I have seen on the 'net.
Someone said that it means that if two people book and travel together but one persons case weighs 18kg and the other persons case weighs 12kg the excess 3kg of the 18kg bag will not be compensated by the underweight 12kg bag.
Someone else said that it means that each person travelling must have a bag each, weighing no more than 15kg each.
Yet another has said that as long as you travel together you can use just one case, totalling 30kg (2x15kg allowance).
What I really, really want to know, for sure, is can we have just the one bag?
So, to clarify, if anyone has any experience of this with Ryanair...can we take just one bag between us with both our 15kg allowances in it (so a total of 30kg in one bag between us)?
Thank you so much in advance to anyone who can clear this up for me once and for all.
