Information about Vueling Airlines check-in

As with most airlines, check-in can be done online, saving time and money.

Typically, we don’t opt for the expensive fares, such as those that allow priority boarding or early check-in.

That was the case this time, but with the basic fare, we were allowed to check in seven days in advance.

Additionally, we opted for random seat selection.

Our family consists of two adults, one child, and one teenager, and we were allocated seats as follows: the child and one adult together, the teenager in the next row, and the other adult in the row after.

This seemed perfectly acceptable to us, as we weren’t willing to pay extra to sit together.

This is the information available on the Vueling Airlines website regarding carry-on baggage:

On Vueling-operated flights, you can bring one carry-on bag with a maximum weight of 10 kg and dimensions of 55x40x20 cm.

You can also bring another smaller carry-on bag with maximum dimensions of 35x20x20 cm and an additional bag with purchases made at the airport. These must fit under the front seat.

If you’re traveling with a baby, you can bring everything the little one needs in your carry-on baggage.

As we usually travel with just the essentials, meaning as little as possible for each of us, we rarely need checked baggage.

On this particular trip, where we stayed in Salou for a week, each of us brought a carry-on suitcase, and in total, we took two backpacks (one with toys and snacks and the other with photographic equipment) and a purse (the third backpack was inside the suitcase in case it was needed on the way back), so we still had space left over.
