So hubby is thinking of bringing my boys up to see me from Sydney to Gold Coast, and I'm wondering what the go is with travelling with small prams? Is it included in the fare or do I need to pay extra? It's not quite an umbrella stroller but it is compact.
The fare allows 7kg hand luggage or pay $15 for 17kgs checked baggage. We want to keep the cost of the fare down as much as possible so that's why I'm asking about the pram....

Have a look at the airline terms for travelling with children. I think most of them allow a pram and car seat at no extra cost. The cheaper ones might allow one or the other.

We flew virgin last year and they allowed us to take two or three baby items for free. This allowed us to take the pram and car seat at no cost.

My understanding was it depends on the age of the child. If they're travelling on an infant ticket (under 2) you can bring baby equipment for free.

Thanks, I think we are looking at flying up on tiger and back with jetstar.

Normally they have to allow you 2 pieces of baby equipment for babies under 2 by law I think. We flew with jet star a while ago and we took a travel cot and pushchair.
As frequent fliers ourselves a good tip is to find a large bag to put folded pushchair in if you don't need to take it to gate with you and you can often fit something else in there as well. We've never been asked to open the bag so normally we put our baby jogger folded up in the bag along with a baby capsule seat and then it counts as one piece. We figure it's not much different to taking a pushchair that has separate seat or capsule attachment as that just counts as one item normally. Also it helps protect the items when they are thrown on and off aircraft.

Any infant regardless of the cost is allowed to take a pram as check in. I think you can take a ports cot and car seat too.

If hubby needs to take the pram to the gate, what happens then? Can he?
Ds2 isn't walking yet so DH will have to carry him, both boys hand luggage and his own, and hold ds1's hand...
Maybe ds2 can crawl to the gate 😂😂

I've found that most airports provide strollers for you to use.
