Hand luggage can cost a lot if you’re not careful. Each airline has its own rules and will happily  charge you extra if your cabin baggage doesn’t fit within the limits. These charges can definitely double or even triple your fare. Save a lot of stress – and money – by checking dimensions and weight restrictions before you travel. Here’s a handy guide to carry on luggage sizes of major European airlines!
