To take a sports item on top of your check in allowance, you might need to pay for an extra bag. You can find out how much this will cost on our additional baggage page.
If your sports equipment meets all the requirements set out below, just head to the airport, you don't need to contact us to give us any warning. If it's bigger than that or it weighs more than 23kg, you won't be able to check it in as baggage - but our friends in Virgin Atlantic Cargo may be able to offer assistance to help you out.
- There might be a few restrictions specific to certain items. If these apply, you'll find the details under each sports category listed below.
- If you're travelling on or have a connecting flight with one of our partner airlines, their baggage allowance will apply and you'll need to check with the operating carrier before you travel.
