Traveling with badminton rackets

avatar male m

In my experience, different airlines have different policies. SQ allows rackets as carry-on (back then, don’t know now), while ANA doesn’t so you have to check it in.

Checking in a racket bag as sports equipment is relatively safe. I wrapped my bag with plastic in the airport, since my bag is white so it wouldn’t get scratched. I had 2 rackets inside that time.

Recently, I successfully traveled with 2 rackets in a large suitcase with clothes, checked in for long-haul flight with 1 change of plane. I somehow followed this video:

. I used bubble wrapping plastic and used boxes to shape the extra cushion and packaging.
