How to travel with a vape device

Travelling abroad? What does that feel like again! While the pandemic has meant we’re all a little out of practice with this whole going away thing, we like to think things are finally starting to go back to normal – well, as normal as they once were. 

If you’re planning to get on a plane in the near future, it’s a good idea to remind yourself of the rules and regulations regarding flying with an e-cig. Things like vaping on public transport, what to do with your vape at the airport, and all the other vaping etiquette you need to know when travelling with an e-cigarette.

Can I take my vape on an aeroplane?

Simple answer: yes. But there is some guidance to remember.

When getting a plane you need to make sure you pack your vape in your carry-on luggage. E-cigs are powered by lithium ion batteries which can catch fire if they’re damaged – these always need to be carried in the airplane cabin.

You can pack e-liquids (like ours) in either your checked luggage or your hand luggage, however, some airlines have different policies on this so it’s always best to check first before travelling. 

Along with your mini Lynx Africa, vape liquids carried in your hand luggage will be subject to airport liquid regulations – they need to be under 100ml, and carried in a clear plastic bag with your other liquids. However, whether you decide to put your vape liquids in your carry-on or in your checked baggage, remember to pack them in plastic bags. This is because the cabin pressure can sometimes cause them to leak. 

Further to this, you should always remember to completely empty your e-cig tank before flying as well. That way you’re almost guaranteed no leakage. 

Can I use my vape in the airport?

Most airports in the UK have vaping laws and restrictions. Specifically at Gatwick, Heathrow, and Manchester airports, you can vape in the designated smoking areas outside, but not inside any of the terminals. This is the most common airport vaping policy but be sure to check each specific airport before your trip – just to be safe.

Can I vape while I fly?

Sadly no. There are no airlines that let you vape on airplanes and there’s also heavy penalties and fines if you get caught doing it. Trust us, it’s not worth it.

Can I vape on a train? What about on the bus?

As well as on planes, there are specific rules and regulations about vaping on public transport – basically, you can’t. Vaping is banned on trains, buses, and planes, including in most stations as well. 

What happens if I run out of e-liquid when I’m abroad?

Figuring out how to buy vape juice and refills abroad can be tricky. The easiest way to continue vaping while you’re on holiday is by simply taking enough e-liquid to keep you going – and at 69p per 10ml, with V69 you can definitely afford to!

By checking local vaping regulations before you travel, you can find out whether or not you’re able to buy or carry vape liquids into the country. If you’re holidaying in Europe, try looking for e-liquid refills in licensed tobacco stores. However, remember to be wary of different nicotine strengths – especially ones that are higher than you’re used to. While you can enjoy these e-liquids abroad, remember not to bring them back with you. That would be a violation of the Tobacco Products Directive and will land you in some very hot water.

What’s vaping etiquette like around the world?

Vaping is pretty common in the UK, however, in other countries it’s not so much. It all depends on their e-cig regulations and how frequently these change. Like everything we’ve said so far, it’s always best to check the laws of where you’re going beforehand.  

Countries like Thailand and Singapore have banned vaping altogether, while others like Malaysia and South Africa only allow nicotine-free e-liquids. It’s important to check the regulations on whether vaping is prohibited, if you can vape then where, and the importing and sale of e-cigarettes in the country. And since vaping continues to grow in popularity around the world, make sure to regularly check local policies that might be subject to change. 

If you are travelling to a location where vaping is uncommon, be prepared to answer some questions and to always be considerate of local customs.

A portable powerhouse 

One of the best things about vaping is that it’s portable. Both your device and the accompanying e-liquids can fit in your suitcase, carry-on, or even pocket, meaning you can enjoy all of our e-liquids when you’re abroad. 

All you have to do is make sure you follow the vaping laws where you’re holidaying, and anchors away!
