Golf clubs

Golf equipment (bag containing clubs and shoes) is considered a standard checked baggage item and is included at no extra charge in your baggage allowance. If you would like to transport other baggage items in the hold and their number exceeds your authorized allowance, you must purchase an additional baggage allowance. To determine your baggage allowance amount, please read the information in the Checked baggage section.
