easyJet Plus is the nearest thing that easyJet has to a loyalty scheme – ie not very near at all!
The scheme has been around for a while, and offers a number of benefits:
Free seat selection – this is a genuine cash saving given the usual fees of up to £14.99 per flight. This ONLY applies to the member and NOT to other people travelling on the same booking.
Speedy boarding – a cash saving, although less important if you have a seat selected
Fast track security – whilst not a stated benefit this appears to work at certain airports as the comments show
Access to ‘fast bag drop’ desks
There is one extra benefit – a bigger luggage allowance.
With easyJet Plus, it is ‘a bigger luggage allowance’ with a twist. You don’t get any flexibility on weight but you are allowed a physically larger bag!
Since July 2013, easyJet is no longer guaranteeing to accept bags exceeding 50cm x 40cm x 20cm as cabin baggage. The easyJet cabin baggage limit is actually 56cm x 45cm x 25cm, but bags of this size will now be specially tagged and will be removed from the cabin on full flights. Passengers will need to collect them from the luggage belt as usual on arrival.
This rule will not apply to easyJet Plus members, who can continue to bring on bags of 56 x 45 x 25 with no fear of them being popped into the hold at the last minute! The rest of us will need to bring smaller cases if we want to be certain of keeping them with us.
The fee to join easyJet Plus is £149 per year, so for the regular easyJet traveller who wants seat selection it is a simple matter of working out if £149 saves you money or not.
There is currently a 10% discount code available. If you enter the code SEPLUS@10% in the promotional code box on the easyJet Plus site you will save £14.90.
