      Hi Kapil! Thanks for visiting Indian Eagle! We would be able to answer your query only if you let us know which airline you are likely to travel on. It’s because baggage allowance varies from airline to airline.

      Hello Dr Vikram Patel! It is recommended that you contact the operating airline directly to check whether you can carry the golf kit as part of the carry-on / cabin baggage; whether you are required to check in the golf kit and need to pay for it. It is always better to go with the airline regarding accurate baggage details. Wish you a happy and safe trip!
