To take a sports item on top of your checked in baggage allowance, you might need to pay for an extra bag.
If you're taking it as your checked in baggage, but it weighs more than 23kg (but less than 32kg) there'll be an overweight baggage charge.
Economy Light tickets don't include a checked bag, so be mindful of that when you book.
You can find out how much it will cost to bring your additional or overweight baggage here.
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 32kg, you won't be able to check it in as baggage - but our friends at Virgin Atlantic Cargo may be able 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.
