I love taking my bike everywhere that I go, I totally haven't driven an actual car in years actually. So when my friends told me that we were going to take a group vacation, I was lost. What about my bicycle? Having serious separation anxiety issues between my bike and I is an issue. I even eat dinner with it every night (I haven't had a date in years.) Please tell the show "My Strange Addiction" to stop contacting me regarding my obsession with my bike, though.
Now, if you need to take your bicycle everywhere you go like me, you should definitely check out the bicycle transport bags Moosejaw carries. Bicycle transport bags are great because they're a great compacted storage case for your bike when you travel. What I learned the hard way is that you can just carry your bicycle fully attached onto a plane, but instead you'll have to get a bicycle traveling case for it. Honestly, it's for the best too, because a bicycle traveling case will compact your bicycle so it's safe to travel and not taking up the whole aisle of the plane.
Also, if you're worried about putting your bike in a bicycle travel bag, you shouldn't. Bicycle travel bags have padding to protect your bike from the bumps and bruises of the road, and bicycle travel cases have internal pockets so you have plenty of places to store things. Also, if it makes you feel better, a lot of professional cyclists carry their bicycle in a bike transport bag because a bicycle travel case is the best way to go. Bike travel cases are probably a competitive cyclist's best friend. A bike travel case told me that.
So if you're looking for a safe and secure way to transport your bike with you, then check out the bike travel cases that Moosejaw has to offer. I did end up going on that trip with my friends and bought a bike travel bag for it, and I can tell you it was a great decision. Plus, I think the separation made me get over my bike a little, so sorry "My Strange Addiction."
