Traveling With Your E-Foil
Whether it's a trip or a quick trip to the lake next door. We recommend every e-foil owner take out insurance for his e-foil. You can read all about insurance in our blog "Do I Need Insurance For My E-foil?".
The board bag in which our e-foil is delivered is perfectly adequate to protect your e-foil when traveling. However, you can also wrap the edges of your e-foil with bubble wrap. This way you can prevent possible damage caused by careless loading and unloading by the airline.
Book excess baggage with the airline at an early stage
Depending on the tariff on which you fly, you can take your board for free. However, it is often the case that you have to book your board as excess baggage (bulky baggage). We recommend that you add the excess baggage directly when booking. This is usually cheaper than booking it at check-in.
Shipping of the battery
The battery is a dangerous good, therefore you are not allowed to take it with you on the plane. The battery must be shipped separately (like a package). To ship the battery properly, you must label the package as dangerous goods, and include a battery data sheet and CE certification.
We recommend contacting the shipping company you want to send your battery through again so that nothing stands in the way of proper shipping.
Furthermore, you should send your battery early. Often the shipping of dangerous goods takes a relatively long time, so you should send the battery at least two or three weeks before departure (the times within and outside Europe can vary greatly).
Now nothing stands in the way of your trip. If you have any further questions about your e-foil, please do not hesitate to contact us.
