I am flying overseas in next 2-3 weeks for about 3-4 days, so I decide to travel light. Therefore, I will only bring one medium sized hand carry luggage with me to save on the check in luggage fee. However, I plan to buy some things (badminton rackets and some souveniers) before I come back. Two questions:-

1) Will I be able to carry THREE items on board? (Hand Carry Luggage, racket bag and shopping bag)
2) If cannot, can I check them in IMMEDIATELY at the departure counter (as I have not paid the check in luggage fee)?

P.S: I have already called the AirAsia hotline - been on hold for about 15 mins, but no one answer.

Can't you put the racket into your carry luggage?

I measured mine with a racket. It doesn't fit. At all.

sport equipment must check in.

the rate when you check in is based on current country you are in. You better buy add on luggage now.

yes sports equipment must be checked-in. Just buy 20kgs on the trip back. It's like RM44 if I remmbered correctly.

Great. Guess I have to pay in for checked in luggage then. But I can't do it at the moment. Only can do it 14 days from departure?

sports equipment like golf clubs and surfing boards need. badminton/tennis rackets no need.

i flew airasia and other airlines with badminton racket can just bring on board provided not too many hand carry

Well, I plan to get 1-2 rackets. But my friends asking me to get a few more and a bag. So I guess check in is the better option for my luggage.....

depends on how you wanna do it. i checked in my luggage and brought the rackets as handcarry. my racket bag was containing 4 rackets at the time laugh.gif i definitely feel safer that it's up there with me and not being thrown around randomly as luggages are prone to

Yeah. That's what exactly I am thinking. Imagine your prized items gets tossed around like a rag doll. Besides, there's also the theft thingy.... you check in, but they don't "check out".... sweat.gif
