easyJet is another airline whose baggage fees are dependent upon which point in time you buy your allowance.  This means you’ll save money if you purchase your bags online simultaneously with your ticket.

It’s also important to note that easyJet’s max weight for a checked bag is 20kg (vs. the average 23kg).  Be sure you’re in compliance with this lighter regulation unless you want to be charged pesky overweight fees.
