This guide explores the rules for vaping in some of the most popular and recommended long-haul destinations in 2024, according to TUI and The Times.

General Tips for Traveling with a Vape

  • Research Local Laws: Before traveling, ensure you understand the vaping laws of your destination. Check the vaping laws well in advance to avoid any surprises.
  • Pack Enough Supplies: Bring enough e-liquids and spare parts for your trip, considering potential delays. Pack extra supplies to be prepared for any delays or issues.
  • Carry a Backup Plan: Carry a backup nicotine delivery method, such as patches or gum, in case of emergencies or no-vaping scenarios.
  • Stay Informed: Keep up to date with any changes in vaping regulations at your destination. Regulations vary by country, so stay informed about the specific rules of your destination.
  • Pack Smart: Pack your vape devices and e-liquids in your carry-on luggage. Avoid carrying expensive or irreplaceable vape kits to prevent loss or confiscation.
  • Respect Local Regulations: Adhere to local smoking and vaping regulations to avoid fines or legal issues during your trip.

Airline and Airport Policies on Vaping

Understanding both airline policies and airport regulations is crucial to avoid legal issues and ensure compliance with local laws.

  • Carry-On Only: Place vape kits and e-liquids in your carry-on luggage; they are prohibited in checked luggage.
