These guidelines range from bag size limit to weight limit and vary across airlines.

Budget airlines, though boasting impressive seat prices, are often some of the worst when it comes to baggage restrictions.

Passengers found to have packed in excess of these weight restrictions can often face sizeable fees.

Popular airlines such as Ryanair could charge passengers as much as £50 to check-in their hand luggage if it is found to flout the rules at the airport.
