Taking a Road Bike to NZ from UK

New Zealand : British Expat Discussion Forum - britishexpats.com
Hi there,

I did post a question about this a little while ago but still working out what's the best thing to do.

I am coming out to New Zealand to work in approx 5 weeks.

I have a road bike which I am debating about bringing. I was advised I would need to transport my bike in a bike bag. I have looked at the prices of these bike bags and they seem to be around averaging £300. This seems expensive to me and makes me wonder if it might be better financially to just get a bike when I'm out there. Is there a cheaper but secure way of transporting your bike? Obviously you must take the bike apart?

If moving to New Zealand do airlines allow you to take more luggage than a person just going on holiday?

Thanks!
