14.4.10 Baggage benefits
14.4.11 Excess baggage
Example: A member has 50 kg of baggage and is approved for payment of excess baggage. The carrier charges for baggage weighing more than 25 kg. The Commonwealth will pay for 20 kg of the cost of excess baggage. The member must pay the cost of the additional 5 kg.
Example: A member has four suitcases and is approved for payment of excess baggage. The carrier charges for baggage exceeding two suitcases. The Commonwealth will pay excess baggage for one of the additional suitcases. The member must pay for the other
Example: The Commonwealth may remove a member's household items using sea-freight because it is a lot more cost effective than air-freight. Items can often take four to six weeks to arrive. It is therefore reasonable for the member to carry additional baggage to allow for the extended period of arrival of their household items.
14.4.12 Unaccompanied baggage or air freight
This means that the cost of accompanied baggage plus the cost of unaccompanied baggage, must not be more than the cost of 45 kg of accompanied baggage when subsection 126.96.36.199 applies and no more than 60 kg of accompanied baggage when subsection 188.8.131.52B applies.
