We are travelling to germany on a short break in a few days time. We had intended on just hand luggage but with all the extras we need (extra clothing in case of accidents, medication, seat cushion etc) it looks like we will be checking in a bag. I understand that ryanair will allow a bag free of charge either as a cabin bag or a checked bag. Do you know if they check through the bags to see what is in them or do they just allow them anyway? I dont want to get to the airport and then start a big discussion with them about what is needed and for what etc etc
