Can I Travel Abroad with my Vape?
What I need to know
Regulations on E-Cigarettes can vary from different countries; therefore, it is important for you to know these laws before travelling. If you don’t abide by these laws, you could risk you’re vape being confiscated or even worse you could be fined or even imprisoned!
What should I do before I go?
For all batteries its best to turn them off as well as make sure that they are fully charged as this may be required at security. We recommend keeping all you’re vapes together as you may be asked at security to get them out. Always make sure that you pack enough juice for your trip, especially if you’re going to somewhere new and you have no idea where to get your refills. You do not want to go back to the stinkys!
Make sure you check your airline prior to your travel date to avoid any confusion and hassle when arriving. The vape unit itself should be brought in with you as a carryon luggage, this is due to vape batteries being banned in checked luggage worldwide.
Do not forget to put all your liquids in a clear plastic bag alongside with your other liquids, keep it within the 100ml limit. Even the bigger bottles can be included in your check in luggage. It may be a good idea to empty your tank before you board the plane due to the pressure of the plane may cause it to leak.
Remember you cannot charge you’re vape or batteries inside a plan due to fire hazards. If you want to sneak some puffs, do not forget that there is always a possibility it can set of fire alarms in the toilets and like smoking this can cause fines and punishments.
Many airports are banning vaping within their premises, but you can always go to their smoking areas. Do not forget to ask.
