Everything You Need to Know about Travelling with E-Cigarettes

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.

  1. 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.

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.
