Carry-On Summary

Allegiant Airlines charges a fee between $10-$30 for bringing on board a piece of carry-on baggage, depending on the origin and destination of your flight. If purchased at the airport, you will be charged $35 for the privilege.

Maximum 1 piece of carry-on can be purchased, with maximum dimensions 9x14x22 inches (23x36x56cm). It is not allowed to weigh any more than 25lbs/11kg.

In addition to the carry-on bag, you can bring a "personal item" for free, such as a purse, briefcase, or small backpack. This free item is quite small, with maximum dimensions of 7x15x16in, and must be kept by your feet.

Be wary of packing too much as carry-on, as Allegiant Air is quite strict when it comes to measuring and weighing your bags, and will charge additional fees if it is oversize/overweight.
