An airport transit visa is the visa you need to transfer through a country. Even if you’re not planning to leave the airport, you may still need a visa. Some reasons include:
  1. Rechecking your baggage
  2. Moving between terminals
  3. Multiple PNRs in your booking
If you need a visa to enter a country, then you should assume (until proven otherwise) that you will need a visa to transit through that country. As the passenger, it is your responsibility to ensure you have the correct visas and travel documents for your trip. Contact the embassy or your foreign ministry for detailed visa information.
As soon as we find out that your trip is affected, we’ll notify you by email. After you receive our email notification, we strongly advise you to contact the affected airline or airport for the most up-to-date information. The airline usually protects you from Force Majeure situations. But it’s always a good idea to have travel insurance for complete coverage. Examples of Force Majeure situations:
  • Extreme weather conditions
  • Air traffic controller strikes
  • Political instability
  • Earthquakes
  • Terrorist attacks
  • Volcanic activity
  • Carrier insolvency
  • Airport closure
It may be possible, depending on your itinerary and nationality. It depends on your trip and nationality. Each country has their own unique set of requirements for travel documentation. In general, Maltese citizens holding a Maltese ID card can travel within the Shengen area in Europe. The countries in the Shengen zone are: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland. You should research this carefully if you don't want to travel with a passport. It is the passenger's responsibility to have the correct documentation.
Most of the airlines classify the ages of infants as 0 – 2 years and children from 2 – 18 years. In the booking process, you can add an infant either during the initial flight search, or on the booking page. Simply enter the infant’s birth date and the fare will automatically be adjusted to the infant rate. As per most airlines’ policies, only one infant per adult is allowed. Each airline applies their own specific conditions for travelling with an infant including food, seating, baggage allowance, and stroller transportation. Some airlines state that an infant must travel on the lap of an adult, while others require a separate seat. The fare for child travellers is the same as that for adults.

Minors travelling alone

If an airline allows children to travel on their own, they are able to book flights on totallytravel.mt. Below, you can find the minimum passenger age limit for some of the most popular airlines.

  • Quicker transfers to your connecting flight.
Airport proximity You will have enough time for the transfer. If your train/bus transfer is to or from an airport, the station will be at the airport. We use IATA codes for train and bus stations as well. Check the code of your airport and train/bus station when you have a transfer. They should be the same. No baggage restrictions Our train and bus operators do not have any baggage restrictions. However, you must transfer your baggage between plane and train/bus journeys. Platforms and seating This information is not usually available at the time of the booking. The platform and train/bus numbers will be displayed on your ticket and at the station. Your seat number will be displayed on your train/bus ticket if there is assigned seating. Tickets Check your e-ticket for information about the tickets you need for the journey. Sometimes, you will only need to use your reservation number for the train or bus. You should print your tickets to ensure that there is no problem boarding the train or bus.

Using more than one airline is often the cheapest way to travel but it may require a certain amount of planning to reduce the risks involved. Airport transit visas — if your passport typically requires a visa to visit most countries, then you need to do your research before booking a trip. Even if you’re just transiting through a country, you still might need a visa. This is especially true when flying with multiple low-cost airlines, and when you have multiple PNR numbers in your booking. If you’re missing a visa, the airlines may not allow you on board. Rechecking baggage — you usually have to collect and recheck your baggage at every layover when travelling with multiple airlines. As this means leaving the airside/transit zone of the airport, the risk of visa complications is higher. Delays and rescheduling — in case of a delay of a rescheduling, please contact us, and we will do our best to get you on an alternative flight to your final destination of refund the affected part of your journey.
Budget airlines usually require you to transfer your own baggage during transit. Check the booking page or your e-ticket to see if you need to transfer your own baggage during a layover. Budget airlines keep prices low by saving on the costs of baggage transfer. Between each connecting flight, you will need to: - Collect and recheck your baggage - Find the right baggage carousel for your flight number - Take your baggage to the airline counter for your next flight - Check in again - Pass through security and passport control - You might need an airport transit visa for this Be wary of different terminals - At large airports, you might have to travel between different terminals during the process.
If you have a connecting flight then you need to recheck your baggage at each airport, even if your connecting flight is with the same airline. There are visa implications when rechecking baggage so be careful when booking your flights. You will need to pass through immigration as part of the process. You may need to recheck your bags when:
  • The airlines don't provide the service: e.g. low-cost airlines.
  • The airlines in your trip do not cooperate on baggage.
 More info
  • We allow our passengers a sufficient layover time between flights for the rechecking process.
  • Some carriers can book your checked baggage all the way through to your final destination. They'll inform you if this is possible when they take the baggage.
  • If you only have cabin baggage, you do not need to worry about rechecking it.
  • When your flights have different PNR numbers, you may need a visa — even without baggage.
Ryanair’s new cabin baggage policies have removed the 10 kg cabin bag as a standard item for all passengers. If you want to travel with a cabin bag and a personal item, you should purchase Priority Boarding. Priority Boarding: personal item, cabin bag, board the plane first No Priority Boarding: personal item only.  

Personal item

  • Ryanair dimensions: 40 x 20 x 25 cm.
All passengers can bring this into the cabin and it should easily be able to fit under the seat in front of you.
  • If a non-priority customer’s personal item doesn’t fit in the sizer, they will pay a fee of €/£25 at the gate and their bag will be tagged and placed in the cargo hold.

Cabin bag 10 kg

  • Ryanair dimensions: 55 x 40 x 20 cm, 10 kg.
  • To take this into the cabin, you will need to purchase Priority Boarding.
  • Non-Priority passengers will have to pay a €/£25 fee at the gate to bring this on board and it will be put in the cargo hold.


  • Parents with infants can bring an additional 5 kg bag on board.
  • Special medical equipment can be brought on board free of charge (subject to clearance by Ryanair staff).
If you need to bring more baggage and you have more than 48 hours before departure, upgrade your allowance by contacting us through the portal. Excess Checked Baggage  The airlines may charge a fee for every kilogramme or centimetre over the limit and it can be expensive. Excess Cabin Baggage The airlines may charge a fee and ask you to check the bag in. It may then be transported in the cargo hold of the aircraft.
When you are booking, the baggage details are shown on the booking page, together with the prices for upgrading. Every airline allows slightly different checked baggage and cabin baggage dimensions. After booking, take a look at your e-ticket for your baggage dimensions allowance. 

Flying with electronic devices

If you have electronic devices such as laptops or cameras, it is best to transport these in your cabin baggage, but there may be restrictions on their lithium ion batteries. For example, if they have a rating of more than 100 wh, they may not be allowed on board. It's the passenger's responsibility to ensure they're aware of the specific policies of the airlines and airports in their trip.
Checked baggage Checked baggage refers to the items that are transported in the cargo hold of the aircraft. Most people transport larger items as checked baggage, like suitcases, sports equipment, and musical instruments. As the name suggests, you have to check this type of baggage in and you will not have access to it during the flight. If you have connecting flights, you usually need to collect and recheck your baggage between flights. You can pick up your checked baggage at the next airport from the baggage carousel. Your checked baggage weight and dimension allowance can be found on:
  • The booking page
  • Your e-ticket
Check this information carefully before flying because the airlines may charge you a fee if you exceed these dimensions.
A personal item normally refers to the second piece of cabin baggage that's available on most flights. Examples include a handbag, a camera bag, or a small laptop case. Some airlines only allow a personal item for free and then charge extra for additional cabin baggage. Always check your e-ticket for details about the quantity and dimensions of the items you’re allowed to bring.
Cabin baggage is also known as hand luggage. You take it through security into the plane and keep it close to you, either under the seat or in the overhead compartment.

Quantity and dimensions

Check your e-ticket for details about the quantity and dimensions of the items you’re allowed to bring. This info is also shown on the booking page before you pay.

Cabin baggage tips

It's best to transport your electronic items in your cabin baggage.

Prohibited Items

Be careful not to pack prohibited items in your cabin baggage, like liquids, gels and anything sharp (Straight razors and razor blades, sharp tipped scissors with blades measuring more than 6 cm, box cutters, hatchets, knives, Saws, drills, and any tool with a head and shaft measuring more than 6 cm, game darts measuring more than 6 cm, as well as tackle boxes, fishing hooks/lures, crossbows and arrows Other prohibited items include: Wireless mouse, Bluetooth headsets, radio transmitters, radio controlled equipment or toys, printers and computer peripheral devices and laser pointers. These devices may be confiscated if they're found in your cabin baggage because they can interfere with the navigational and communication equipment of the aircraft. Pack these restricted items in your checked baggage and ensure they are switched off. It is the passenger's responsibility to ensure they're aware of the specific policies of the airlines and airports in their trip.

Prescription Medication

Exception: Prescription medication that must be administered with a syringe or hypodermic needle may be allowed in your cabin baggage, for example, insulin. It must be accompanied with a prescription identifying the name of the medication and the issuing pharmacy or doctor.
