The rules on smoking regular cigarettes are normally very straightforward, and most people are quite clear on what is and isn’t allowed. You can’t smoke on a plane, you can’t smoke in public places in many countries and you have to be a certain age in order to purchase them. However, when travelling with e-cigarettes, things might be slightly different. Here is everything you need to know about taking e-cigarettes on your travels.
- Rules and Regulations
Depending on which country you’re going to, the rules and regulations regarding e-cigarettes might be different. Just because you can smoke them in your home country doesn’t mean that you can smoke them on an entirely different continent. In Brazil, smoking e-cigarettes is not allowed, whereas it’s perfectly legal in Afghanistan. Before leaving for your trip, check out the specific smoking laws of the particular country that you’re travelling to.
- Smoking on a plane
Unfortunately, most airlines don’t allow you to smoke on the actual plane, even if it’s an e-cigarette. Some airlines will even go so far as to have you arrested for doing it, so don’t take a chance. You can take your E-Cigarettes with you on the plane, but most airlines will instruct you to take the batteries in your hand luggage. If you’re taking e-liquid with you on your travels, make sure that it is under the 100ml liquid limit if you want it to go in your carry-on bag. (more…)
