Why is flying or travelling with ice hockey skates so problematic, and what is the best alternative?

Flying with ice skates poses a few issues, and as a result many hockey players and ice skaters prefer to ship them instead. These include:

  • When travelling with ice skates along with heavy luggage, airlines may charge expensive excess luggage fees. Choosing to ship them instead, not only will save you money, but you will also avoid the hassle of having to carry it.
  • Depending on the country, some airports may not let you fly with ice skates in your hand-luggage, due to its sharp blades. Travelling with ice skates in checked luggage, you increase the risk of your luggage being lost. This is not ideal when you are competing in a few days, as in most cases using rental skates may not be an option. Choosing to ship them directly your destination instead will insure they arrive safely, and with Eurosender, you can track their progress at any stage.
