Can you check a Pack n' Play on an airplane for free?
I'm trying to figure out what would be the cheapest option, taking our Pack n' Play with us on a plane or having it shipped back and forth?
You might consider a kids' consignment shop where you are going, and calling ahead to see if they have one reasonably priced. You may do better than shipping on such a large item, and may be able to sell it back to them afterward.
Depending on your airline, it is not likely free unless: they have that specifically listed as free, OR
If you are allowed free checked baggage with your ticket and the folded, bagged pack & play fits the checked baggage dimensions.
Thanks, I would like to use the one I just got so I'm trying to figure out how to get it where I want it in the best/cheapest way possible. I don't fly very often so I don't know what to expect on that end.
P.S. I think as a checked bag it would be based on weight rather than dimensions, sorry about that. I doubt a pack & play would exceed checked bag weight. So it may be as simple as extra bag fee vs. shipping cost.
