Taking Bike With Me

Recommended Posts

Im taking my bike along with me as part of my luggage as a piece of sporting equipment, question is, does it have to be in a special bike pod box or can i pack it up in a suitcase? i can pickup a large suitcase cheaper than the bike pods but was just wondering if it had to be in a special bike cycle carrier.

Contact the airline on it and they will advise. Depends on the value of the bike. If very expensive, I would go for a pod, or at the very least a hard shell suitcase. I have seen the way that luggage is handled, and it is not with any great degree of care when being moved around.
