    I have to take more kit than my flight baggage allowance on a course. I can pay for more baggage allowance and claim it back but it would be cheaper to post the stuff and post it back but would I be able to claim this on JPA?
     
  2. I'm led to believe that a simple pre-paid label works - assuming that you're posting from UK.
     
  3. Tell your RAO that you need extra baggage allowance when booking your flight ticket. We do it all the time.

    Indeed, but am I allowed to claim it back on JPA?

    I can do that but it would be cheaper to post the stuff.
     
  6. You wouldn't need to. Your unit can send you a couple.
     
  7. And risk it not turning up!!!
