    They are very strict and the chances are you will have to pay around 50gbp to check it.

    Yes, if they check and measure your bag and find it is too big while you're going through the gates you'll have to pay to have it put under the plane. And I think it costs more to have it checked in last minute too.

    If it's too big you'll end up getting to the departure gate and having it not fit into the luggage rack so they'll have to put it in hold. I think this costs £50 for each flight!

    As the two users posted above. Best to either check it in straight or bring in a smaller bag

    It is £50 as said above. Also £10 for each kg you're over the weight limit. Check the bag in now or get a smaller bag I'm afraid.

    Yes. All the posts are correct My grandma has to pay £40 extra for 4kg extra on her luggage. If it is a few extra cm, you may get away with it! OR You can get a carry bag, and use one of those vacuum bags and put all your clothes in this use carrier bag but they have a small section where you use a vacuum and it sucks all the air out and there is quite alot of space. You can buy these in the £1 shop.

    I wouldn't take the risk! I've flew with Ryanair a few times and will be flying with them again in a few months - they are a little stingy and do not budge on their rules! If it's a few cm over it definitely won't fit!

    That's a great suggestion on vacuum packing!
    I've heard of people doing it but wonder what would happen if you didn't have a vacuum e.g. If you went on holiday and your clothes didn't fit back in the case :/

    Yes! That would be awkward. Imagine if RyanAir had to search through your bag :albertein:

    I've flown to and from the UK with Ryanair on at least 30 different occasions in the past two years, and they have never checked the dimensions of my bag.

    I'd say go for it, but make sure you have money available to pay if they do decide to check your bag!
