Taking a rug on the plane

Hiya,

I have a fairly brand new really nice rug/carpet that we can't use here. We moved house last year and it doesn't fit-but it would look great in the apartment in N. Cyprus.

It's 200/290 cm and stands 200 cm tall when rolled up-I'm guessing it weighs a bit less than 20kgs.

Has anyone taken anything quite as big?

On the TRNC forum a person said they took one and told the airline it was camping equipment.

My husband thinks I'm nuts.

Ann

Re: Taking a rug on the plane

Check with your airline as to the maximum size of a " bag" that you can take . We are taking to Turkey a parcel which measures 1.50 m x 300 mm diameter and there are no problems with Thomas Cook.

Nope,

Made in China probably-like everything else these days.

Fella sitting in front of me last flight had a rug, one of those ropey ginger syrups, looked like a hairy hat

Re: Taking a rug on the plane

I brought over a fairly large Turkish woollen rug I had picked up on Freecycle. Comments about coals to Newcastle and why we didn't fly over on it aside, we had no problems. Checked it in and took it to outside baggage at Bristol airport.

We collected our suitcase from Dalaman and a guy came walking across the baggage reclaim area carrying my rug. No problem.

Fold it in half, roll it up and put in golf bag.

Alternatively; just fold it and put in suitcase. Tried and proven.

Re: Taking a rug on the plane

Most Turkish rugs are made in Turkey and I'm sure if you had asked the seller he would have told it was a magic one as well.........Try it out you could save on the air fares and e-visa.

Sadly, it's not a Turkish carpet-actually I had a look and it was made in Belgium-the carpets from there aren't very good fliers.

It's quite thick and rigid so no way will it fold up.

I looked on British Airways website and it seems that the maximum you can take on there is 190cm-and the rug is 200 cm.

I've emailed them and asked them if I can take it-still waiting for a reply.

Want to buy a carpet?
