Falsely stating that your e-bike is not an e-bike may result in your shipment being stopped and/or confiscated. You may also be subject to a large fine and jail time. Any damage or loss incurred during the shipment of an e-bike that was not declared as an e-bike during booking will NOT be covered by Premium Protection.
This is especially important because BikeFlights does not ship e-bikes via air service. If you were to falsely declare your e-bike shipment to be a standard bike and your battery were to get damaged en route while being shipped via air service, you could cause a plane to crash and people to die if your battery were to get damaged en route (see video).
