Ryanair passenger claims cheap Primark buy saves her loads on hand luggage costs

A SAVVY traveller has revealed a budget Primark buy is saving her money on Ryanair hand luggage fees.

TikTok user Nicole Baskerville shared a video detailing her hack to avoid paying the extra baggage fee when flying with the popular Irish airline.

Nicole shared how she discovered her genius hack when flying to Birmingham, thanks to a bag that she bought from Penneys – the Irish name for Primark.

The travel enthusiast said: “You know with Ryanair you now have to pay for extra baggage and you literally just get free handbag. Well, this is your handbag.”

She revealed a red Minnie Mouse suitcase packed with her items.

She said: “I got this in Penneys and it's a kids' suitcase. It’s the smallest one I could find. And it fits into the compartment, it fits under the seat. And voila – it fits so much.
