Holiday Checklist

  • Vape
  • Coils/pods
  • E-liquid
  • Batteries – in protective casing
  • Charger – plug adapter
  • Backup vape/disposables
  • Nic pouches

Packing Rules

  • Empty your tank/pod beforehand to avoid the risks of leaks due to changes in pressure and temperature in the aircraft
  • Secure E-liquid bottles and pack in a clear and resealable bag, not exceeding security limits if you’re packing them in your hand luggage. If your tank/pod contains liquid, remove it from your vape mod/battery and seal it in your clear liquid bag.
  • If your vape device requires external batteries, remove and store them in a protective case to avoid any accidental activation. Batteries should be packed in your hand luggage only.

As stated on when carrying liquids in your hand luggage,

  • containers must hold no more than 100ml
  • containers must be in a single, transparent, resealable plastic bag, which holds no more than a litre and measures approximately 20cm x 20cm
  • contents must fit comfortably inside the bag so it can be sealed
  • the bag must not be knotted or tied at the top
  • you’re limited to 1 plastic bag per person
  • you must show the bag at the airport security point

Airport Rules

  • Vaping in airport terminals is prohibited, however some airports have designated smoking areas
  • Vaping on board isn’t permitted. Alternatively, nicotine pouches are accepted and can provide that satisfaction of nicotine craving when you’re in-flight, with each pouch lasting 30 minutes.

Holiday Rental Transportation

Many taxi and rental car companies will charge you extra fees if they believe that you have been smoking or vaping in their vehicle, so it’s worth checking their policy beforehand to avoid an extra dent in your pockets! In addition to this, most bus and train lines do not permit the use of e-cigarettes when travelling and will have this outlined on their website.

Buying vape products on Holiday

When buying vape supplies abroad, the quality of vaping devices or E-liquid ingredients may not be guaranteed, therefore we recommend bringing your own supplies (within packing allowance). Many countries have also implemented a levy on their vape products, with the UK to introduce their own in 2026, including Italy, Croatia, Germany, Canada and Portugal. Due to the increased prices, many users opt to stock up from their local vape shop in advance.

Additionally, some countries sell E-liquid in strengths which differ to the UK, so if you happen to purchase any containing over 20mg of nicotine, only buy enough to keep you going on your trip as you won’t be allowed to bring it back into the UK – this is a violation of the Tobacco Products Directive (TPD).
