The holiday season is upon us and millions of people are making travel plans to visit with family and friends all over the country. With the convenience and freedom afforded by your electronic cigarette, you can be sure to get the most out of this year’s travels.
Many e cigarette users have questions and concerns when it comes to traveling by plane and with good reason. Airport security is no joke and no one wants to wait in line any longer than necessary.
According to the TSA, it is perfectly fine to fly with electronic cigarettes and accessories in your carry on and checked luggage. As with any liquids like soap or shampoo, you’ll need to pack any nicotine liquid you have in a clear plastic bag, though TSA rules are subject to change.
Because many people still mistake the vapor from an electronic cigarette for real smoke, actually using them during the course of any U.S. flight is prohibited by the Department of Transportation, so please act responsibly.
As you may know, many rental car companies are now charging a hefty fee if you or anyone else smokes a cigarette or cigar in their vehicles. Fortunately, you’ve got your e cig. With a White Cloud DC electronic cigarette adapter, you can charge your e cigarette when traveling by car.
Anytime a craving hits, you’re free to vape as you please without fear of stinking up the interior; you don’t even have to roll down the windows!
If you’re planning to spend a night or two in a hotel while you’re traveling, having an electronic cigarette on hand can keep you out of the cold and cozy in your room instead as you vape, especially where cigarette smoking isn’t allowed.
As always, it’s highly recommended that you check with the individual establishment in which you’ll be staying to see if vaping is considered acceptable indoors.
