23kg will be enough for your fencing bag, providing you pack your fencing kit in your carry on case. Do not take liquids or gels in your hand luggage. (100mls or under in a transparent bottle is OK). Do not take tool kit items in your hand luggage. Please put your mask, jacket, plastron, breeches, glove, socks, and a spare handle (if you have one) in your hand luggage in case any fencing bags get lost. This means that all you need to borrow to fence is a sword if the worst happens. Make sure you travel in comfortable clothing, wear trainers to travel in. Do not wear any GBR clothing whilst traveling.
Ensure that ALL your electronic equipment (phone, etc) is fully charged, and can be shown to be working. If it isn’t, it may be confiscated at security.

Please note BF are unable to arrange transfers from Naples for independent travellers due to safety and security reasons.
