HOW MUCH IS IT TO TAKE YOUR BIKE ON A PLANE?

Written by Love Velo on 3rd April, 2019

We’ve all been there. Your cycling holiday is almost confirmed and you’ve started counting down the days until your on the plane. But let’s just check how much it costs to bring your bike on a plane…

Half an hour later and you’re emailing 4 different airlines (including their press team and the CEO) trying to find out information that should take 2 minutes. Do you fly with one company because of their maximum weight or another because it’s cheaper one way? Are these prices up-to-date? What are the requirements of the bike box? Can I just go on holiday now, please?

To save you from this drawn-out process, because we’ve been there and know exactly what it’s like, we’ve gathered all this information into one place with links to the correct airline pages for more information.
