Travelling abroad with your vape

by Gary Clark

Now that we’re allowed to start travelling again, chances are you’re already thinking about your next holiday abroad. Sun, sea and sand are definitely what we’re craving, but as a vaper, do you know what the rules are when travelling abroad. From how to pack your vape and e-liquids to the specific rules for different airlines, we’re going to take a look at how to travel abroad with your vape. 

How to pack your vape

Packing your vape for a trip aboard is fairly straightforward. The majority of airlines require any devices with lithium-ion batteries to be carried in hand luggage and you may be limited by the amount of spare batteries you can take with you. Your e-liquids can be packed in your checked luggage, however, we recommend placing the bottles in a sealable plastic bag to avoid any damage if they leak. If you are carrying e-liquids in your hand luggage, you will need to place your bottles in a clear bag with other liquids and ensure that the bottles carry no more than 100ml. 

Top Tip: The air pressure on a flight can sometimes cause vape tanks to leak, so we recommend emptying your tank before your flight. 

What is my airline’s e-cigarette policy?

It’s always best to check the specific e-cigarette policy of your airline before you fly, we’ve rounded up the policies of some of the most popular airlines so you’re not caught short on your break.

What are the vaping laws of your destination?


Most countries allow vaping, however, there are almost always restrictions in place - just like the UK. It is wise to familiarise yourself with the vaping laws of the destination country you are visiting as breaking these could result in fines and even jail time. There are still around 40 countries where vaping is totally banned, this includes importing and selling e-cigarettes and liquids as well as vaping. Although the punishments may range in severity, in some countries the consequences of being caught can be huge. If you are travelling to a country where vaping is banned, our advice is to stick to the laws, here is the current list of countries that have banned vaping or the importing and selling of e-cigarette paraphernalia.

Wherever you’re lucky enough to visit, don’t risk your holiday by ignoring vaping rules and restrictions. The UK is one of the most progressive countries when it comes to vaping tolerance and assuming that other countries will be the same could get you into trouble. If you are planning a trip abroad to a country that allows vaping, make sure you stock up on your favourite e-liquids and spare hardware before you travel.
