Ski and snowboard carriage

Ski carriage can result in extra costs if you’re flying to the mountains, so it’s a good idea to check out ski and baggage carriage before you go.

Every major airline has their own policy and charges, increasingly charging for excess baggage and ski carriage.

With heightened security measures also playing a part, it’s easy to be caught out and get your holiday off on the wrong foot.
