What size bag can you carry on Spirit Airlines for free?
Spirit allows you to carry on one personal item for free. That’s the one that fits underneath the seat in front of you, so it needs to be smaller than 18” x 14” x 8”. Seeing how much you can stuff in there can be a fun challenge if you’re vacationing on a budget. If you want to bring anything larger, like an overhead carry-on or checked bag, you’ll need to pay for it.
What does Spirit charge for bags?
Spirit’s Bare Fare™ system allows you to buy super-low base fares, then customize your flight. Your personal carry-on item, like a small backpack or laptop bag, is free. The charge for overhead carry-on and for checked bags depends on your flight route and when you choose to reserve a bag. Pro tip: Save money by reserving space for your bags when you book your ticket. At booking, your overhead carry-on will typically be $35, and your first checked bag will usually be around $30.
