Clarify most important points in advance
Transport of sports equipment and bulky baggage is normally chargeable. Some airlines, though, offer their customers to carry golf bags and diving equipment free of charge as free baggage up to a certain weight. The dimensions and maximum weight of the bag vary from airline to airline. Special rules apply to the transport of hunting equipment. It’s best to find out about the key points when booking your trip or flight:
- Can you take sports equipment or special baggage with you?
- What will the transport cost?
- How and where can I register my bulky baggage?
What counts as bulky luggage?
All bigger pieces of baggage that cannot be conveyed in the baggage handling system are considered bulky baggage. For example:
- Oversized bags
- Rucksacks with straps
- Prams and child seats
- Skis and snowboards
- Diving gear
- Animals in transport cages
