traceycrokeI'm often asked which airline is best for travelling with a bike. It's always a tricky one to answer, because every airline has different rules. And in each case, the cost and ease of booking varies widely. On top of that, website info can be ambiguous, so travel with a bike can often hit glitches, which requires extra phone calls or emails for clarity, and a bit of patience at check in while staff check the rules too.
Tip: Bike bookings don't always automatically show up on the flight confirmation. It's a good idea to call the airline and confirm that your bike is booked on the plane. Ask for proof in writing and take it with you when you check in.
Thanks Nadia at @virginaustralia who dealt with our check in quickly, efficiently, fairly and with a dose of humour to boot. #FastBikeCheckIn. @tasmania and @bluederby here we come.
Last year, over 20,000 mountain bikers travelled to Tasmania - up 120 % on the previous year. #funfact #discovertasmania #mtb #mountainbiking #bluederby #worldclasstrails #worldtrail #virginaustralia #tasmania #australia
