Paying for an extra suitcase with virgin

Just found out you can do this in advance with virgin, for £32. Saves worry about going over the weight limit.

Just wondered if anyone has done this before, and how easy it is to arrange?

You can do it online before you go, or at the airport (if they still have available space) It's cheaper to book in advance. We only need to book for the journey home........for all of the Bath & Body Works stuff I buy!!!!

yes we did it in advance in September. Again just for the way home.

Went out with 2 bags weighing 18kg each and came back with 3 all at 25kg!! They allow 2kgs extra per bag on the way home. One of ours was 26kg and we had to take out 1 kg! We had quite a lot of hand luggage as well....

We shopped A LOT this time!

Sounds perfect, just what we'll be doing next year I think. So you just booked the extra case online... Anywhere in particular? Is it done when you access your flight?

Sounds like a plan! Wife and I were thinking one extra between the two of us for the return journey but I know how well she can shop.... (Well, both of us actually!)

Oh I don't know if knowing this BEFORE we travel is a good idea I can do some serious shopping in the US but now that I have DS I fear I'll be worse than ever lol! Hmm, maybe pre booking a bag is a good idea! Limit myself to one extra bag!
Actually, slightly OT question! Does anyone know if a lap infant has any sort of baggage allowance? He'll probably have more stuff to bring than I will! lol!

What airline are you going with? If virgin then they get a suitcase up to 23kg, 6 kg hand luggage and can take a pushchair or car seat

We travelled last year with twins on laps and that was luggage allowance

But they're SO much cheaper out there so its totally worth it I can't wait to buy DS his first pair of Converse! Oh I am so glad I'm saving really hard right now, I can envision a massive shopping spree! I'll have to sen DH back to the villa with DS and just leave me at the shops haha!
