This viral Ryanair bag is just £11.99 – even without a Prime account
Ryanair is known for its incredibly cheap flights, with some flights on offer for as little as £19.99, but one thing it isn’t known for is its baggage allowance.
And, passengers who are not in the know about these luggage rules can end up facing excess fees at the airport. One of the most important Ryanair baggage rules to know are the size and weight restrictions for both cabin bags and checked luggage. But, there is one viral bag that has been doing rounds on social media, described by some passengers as “the real deal”.
As shown in a TikTok video posted by @emilystravelguides, the bag meets Ryanair’s basic cabin bag measurements of 40X20X25 and fits into the luggage sizer.
And to make things even better, the best-seller bag from the brand Narwey on Amazon isn’t exclusive to the Prime Day sale and is just £11.99. For those who like to add a pop of color to their travel ensemble, the luggage item comes in an array of colors.
If you are jetting off with Ryanair in the near future and need to know the lowdown on all the latest rules (as well as some packing hacks to save you money) read our guide to Ryanair’s baggage rules.
Non-Prime discounts on hand luggage for easyJet, Ryanair, Jet2 and more
Of course, Ryanair isn’t the only airline with strict luggage restrictions. Budget favorites including easyJet, Jet2 and TUI all have their own luggage weight and size rules for cabin bags which you’ll need to consider before jetting off.
- According to easyJet’s luggage rules, hand luggage items for basic fare passengers can measure a maximum size of 45 x 36 x 20 cm (including handles and wheels). Some passengers can bring a large cabin bag on board measuring 56 x 45 x 25 cm if they purchased an Up Front or Extra Legroom seat, booked a large cabin bag for their flight, are an easyJet Plus cardholder or booked a FLEXI fare.
- Holidaymakers jetting off with Jet2 may bring one hand luggage item measuring no more than 56 x 45 x 25cm. This must weigh no more than 10kg. You can find out more about Jet2’s latest baggage allowance here.
- Under TUI’s baggage rules, travelers can take one piece of hand luggage measuring 55 x 40 x 20cm.
The good news is that there are plenty of Amazon cabin bag deals that won’t see you facing excess luggage fees at the gate.

A four-piece, waterproof packing cube set from Howala is on sale right now for £14.99, while an eight-piece packing cube set by the brand BETLLEMORY is on offer for £17.99 on Amazon.

When is Amazon Prime Day 2023?
Amazon Prime Day 2023 runs between July 11 and 12. The major sale event starts on Tuesday, July 11 at 12.01am and will come to an end on Wednesday, July 12, at 11.59pm.
However, Amazon has already launched a handful of deals for Prime members (and those enjoying a 30-day free trial) in advance of the sale. There are also plenty of discounts and savings to be had on products across the site, regardless of whether you are a Prime member or not.
Based on previous Prime Day sales, it’s likely most of the discounts specific to the sale will be reversed as soon as the two-day event ends. That means you’ll need to act fast to secure the best deals!
Prime members get next-day delivery and sometimes even same-day delivery in some parts of the UK on thousands of items sold on and dispatched by Amazon – meaning even more savings to enjoy.
Amazon also offers free returns on its sale items, so if you aren’t happy with your purchase, you can send it back free of charge.
When does the sale end?
Despite what the name suggests, Amazon Prime Day actually lasts for two days. The sale begins on Tuesday, July 11 at 12.01am and ends on Wednesday, July 12, at 11.59pm. However, not all Prime deals are available during the full two days.
Over the course of the 48-hour period, Amazon will roll out fresh deals on its website. Lightning Deals are only available for a limited amount of time, with the discount coming to an end after a set amount of time or once a certain amount of stock is sold.
Amazon also offers Deals Of The Day which will be available on only one of the two days.
With that said, some Amazon deals are on the website right now – and aren’t just exclusive to Prime customers. This is because Amazon offers discounts and deals on certain products throughout the year. So, even if you miss the Amazon Prime Day sale, there are still deals to be found!
