Each item of sporting equipment represents one piece of checked baggage allowance, provided that it does not exceed the maximum size and weight limits.
International Short Haul flights
If you are travelling on a Saver fare with only sporting goods you will be required to purchase a checked baggage allowance for each separate piece you are carrying. We advise you to pre-purchase baggage online or by calling our Guest Contact Centre. Baggage allowances added/bought at the airport will be charged at a higher fee.
If you are travelling on a Saver Lite fare with only sporting goods you will be required to upgrade to a Saver fare to receive a checked baggage allowance. This can be done at the time of booking or by calling our Guest Contact Centre.
International Long Haul Flights
All sporting equipment will form part of a guest’s checked baggage allowance on all Virgin Australia flights. Excess baggage charges will apply once the full baggage allowance has been exceeded.
Kitesurfing equipment will be charged at the full excess baggage rate
