Ryanair - buying checked luggage after online check in?

Hi,

As per subject, can you buy additional luggage online if already checked in online and boarding passes are printed?

I've access to printer now and I can check in and print boarding passes, but I don't know if I'll need more luggage (flying on 6 June from Berlin) and I won't have access to printer then.

I think you may need to be 'unchecked-in' by Ryanair for the baggage to be added at this point. Then rechecked in.

Buying at the airport is possible but will cost you more.

Try asking on the LiveChat function on the Ryanair website. They are normally very good on there, although often you will have a wait for an operator.

Correct, you need to call or chat and ask to be "unckecked".

I just asked to upgrade bag from 15 5o 20kg as it is enough for me. I was ready to buy another bag beforehand as I didn't knew about upgrading.

Can someone please explain what this means? Taken from Ryanair website:

------------

Cabin Bag Drop Off Service

Customers who have purchased a checked bag (15/20kg) prior to check in, will be given the option to check in one cabin bag per flight/per person. This option is available to customers during the online check in process only for a fee of €5/£5 per passenger/per sector.

Bags must not exceed maximum size 55 x 40 x 20 cms and weigh no more than 10kg. Passengers availing of this offer will only be permitted to carry a small bag up to maximum size of 35 x 20 x 20 cms on-board.

Please remember to ensure that valuables and items needed for the flight are removed from your cabin bag before checking it in. The provisions on checked baggage set out in Article 8 apply accordingly.

-------------

In particular middle paragraph "Passengers availing of this offer will only be permitted to carry a small bag up to maximum size of 35 x 20 x 20 cms on-board." So if I don't take up this offer I can only carry small carry on?

So ,could you tell, what was the outcome here?

I also read this and wonder whether I can only take a small bag on-board. I do not see any offer during online check-in. I'm confused.

Best is to contact them via web chat and they will sort it all out for you. I've upgraded to 20kg via chat.
