This month’s What Mountain Bike magazine carries a handy guide to flying with your bike, and topping their list of travel tips is packing your cherished steed in something that can withstand the whims of boisterous baggage handlers.

‘Virtually every airline says you should pack your bike appropriately in a bike bag or box,’ says What MTB.

In other words – your choice of bike box can quite literally make or break your cycling holiday.

Drover supply fully rigid, top-of-the range Polaris Pod Pro bike boxes (£525) alongside the semi-rigid Eva Pod Plus (£325) and the Eva Bike Pod (£274.99).

Remember that if your cycling trip is likely to be a one-off and you don’t fancy shelling out for a box, we also have the Pod Pro available to hire at £50/ week or £80/two weeks.
