Frontier is one of the few airlines that currently charges a fee for standard carry-on bags and each checked bag (there are no automatic inclusions).
These fees increase with time so to save the most money, purchase both your carry-on and checked luggage allowance early.
If you’re not sure how much you’re bringing at the exact time you purchase your ticket, you have until 24hrs prior to departure to secure the cheapest fee.
