Protect your bike

  • Pack your bike protectively for travel – we recommend hard cases designed specifically for transporting bikes.
  • For bikes not packed in a hard case, the handles must be turned around, pedals taken off, tires deflated and other additional parts removed or covered.
  • We don't sell protective bike boxes at the airport, but you can rent hard bike cases at selected airports.

 Electric bikes cannot be transported as checked baggage, even if the battery is disconnected or removed as they are considered to be hazardous goods.

 Flights departing from Los Angeles (LAX) and Bangkok (BKK) refuse soft bags and require that all bikes are packed in a hard cases or boxes.
