Airline ski/snowboard fees

Most European low-cost airlines will happily charge you a ton for carrying the ski equipment. However, there are some nice exceptions!

In this post we’ve listed the fees you can expect to pay when flying with your winter stuff in Europe.
tl;dr: just go with Eurowings to Salzburg or Munich 🙂

Latest update: November 2019; make sure to check the airline terms at the links below before booking!

  • easyJet: snowboard 20kg, €42 per flight
  • Ryanair: ski equipment 20kg, €45 per flight
  • Transavia: ski equipment 15kg, €34 per flight
  • Wizz Air: sports equipment, €30 per flight
  • Lufthansa (Economy Light fare): snowboard, €80 (holy crap!) per route
  • Eurowings: ski equipment flies for free; you can verify this by adding the ski equipment at the last booking step before paying

If you don’t feel like flying:

  • Deutsche Bahn: free; ICE trains don’t offer much luggage space but it’s usually possible to squeeze a snowboard bag into some corner
  • FlixBus: €9 one way, and make sure to call them as early as possible, otherwise, they don’t guarantee the space

Safe travels!
