A look at what the main airlines charge
Clients often ask us about the costs of flying with golf clubs, and it is important to compare charges, so we have created this page with a table containing information about various airlines’ policies and charges. As we all know from experience, there are more and more obstacles and increased transport costs involved in flying, so this is perhaps a good moment to remind you that in many destinations we have a rental service offering quality clubs.
