This is the process advised by Virgin bookings to take advantage of the new deal for luggage for musicians.
Bookings of 10 or more are done through the Group tab on www.virginaustralia.com. Less than 10 travelling, book online.
10 or more people travelling, book through Groups online Group Quote
Once flights are booked, email the Booking Reference Number to firstname.lastname@example.org with details of the instruments travelling and the weight estimate. Virgin Australia will then organise from their end and you make payment for the baggage amount you want to purchase.
First $32 KG is free.
2nd 32 Kg is $15 then increases in increments of 32 KG @$15.
96 kg of luggage = $30.
Please note you need 48 hours notice as the Virgin Head Office is in Queensland. Virgin Australia Groups Department phone number is 136 700.
Please double check directly with Virgin as this may change. However the information was accurate at the time of this posting.
