Qantas Sports Equipment
If you are travelling with sports equipment you can include it as part of your checked baggage allowance, but this is subject to requirements. Each item must be checked in as one piece and you will incur charges for any additional baggage. To add sports equipment to your booking, go to the Qantas website and click manage booking.
If you want to save on excess baggage fees, you can purchase an additional baggage allowance prior to arriving at the airport. This is subject to free baggage allowance being available on your flight.
If you are shipping sports equipment such as surfboards, surf skis and windsurfers (sailboards) you may not be able to count this towards checked baggage and instead will need to send it as freight. Freight charges will apply.
The maximum weight of any piece of checked baggage is 32kg (70lb). All items must be properly and securely packed.
My Baggage – Airline Baggage Alternative
If you are travelling light on your Qantas flight then checking bags into the hold is an easy option, but what if you are travelling with multiple pieces of luggage or if your bags exceed the weight limit? You might be subject to costly fees and end up paying a lot more for your journey than previously anticipated.
Why not use My Baggage? As an airline baggage alternative, we allow you to ship a massive 30kg/66lb suitcase or boxes at low rates from your door to your destination. We also provide fuss-free sports equipment shipping with guaranteed low-rates.
You’ll also have the option to pay extra for even heavier bags if you need to, and what’s more, you can add as many items as you like to your booking. Shipping your luggage ahead allows you to bring more with you than if you were simply relying on a few pieces of checked baggage and gives you the freedom to ditch the wait at the carousel and not have to worry about carrying heavy suitcases to departures.

The telephone help I got from Doris and Samantha who I think were in Belfast. Without them I would not have proceeded. The whole process was a nightmare.

I placed two orders for MyBaggage within a span of a week to two different countries for delivery and both orders arrived on time and in excellent condition. These two orders were picked up without any hitches. Having the phone number of the courier for pick up was the key to have a seamless experience. Thank you so very much MyBaggage for your awesome service. I'll definitely order from you again in a few months!
