It's summer holiday time! Time for sun, sea and sand. Time to get away from the stress of life for a week, but you still need to vape, right? Today I will talk you through the do's and don'ts of vaping on holiday.
The holiday vaping procedure starts before you even get on the plane. There are many checks you may want to do before you go.
First, check if you are allowed to vape at the airport. While most airports do not allow you to vape inside, some have designated vaping areas outside the terminal.
Vaping on the plane is strictly forbidden, however on some planes you are still allowed to take the vape on the plane. You should check with the airline provider whether or not you can take your vape.
Since e-cigarettes use lithium batteries, on some planes the batteries have to be carried separately. The cigarette also cannot be charged up on the plane for fear of overheating.
While it is ok to vape in the UK, there are other countries where vaping is not legal, while some countries allow vaping, but with restrictions. Below is a table of the different countries and the legality of vaping.
|Country||Using Vapes||Selling Vapes|
|Antigua and Barbuda||Legal||Illegal|
|Chile||Legal||Illegal (except medical products)|
|India||Legal||Legal (Though some states ban them)|
|Japan||Legal||Legal to sell devices, but not nicotine liquid|
|Mexico||Legal||Illegal but Often Not Enforced|
|United States||Legal||Legal (With a Licence)|
When going on holiday, you want to make sure you have everything you need before going. You don't want to pack all your e-liquids only to get to the destination and find you have forgotten your kit, rendering the liquids useless.
Here's a list of things you should pack before going on holiday.
- Vape Kit
- Replaceable Atomizers
- Spare Tank
Be sure to empty the tank before you pack it, so the liquid doesn't leak in the bag. For the same reason, be sure that the bottle is tightly shut.
Airplanes have restrictions on the amount of liquids you can take on a plane, allowing only 100ml, so don't pack too much. You may want to take your favourite mod for huge clouds, but some countries have restrictions, as seen above.
If you rent a car on holiday, some don't allow you to vape in the vehicle. It is best to check before you vape in the car as it can affect your insurance.
Vaping In Public
Some countries have different laws regarding where you can and can't vape. If you want to vape in a restaurant or a cafe, it is best to ask first, otherwise you may be kicked out.
Keep your vape out of the direct sunlight, since it can cause the liquid to get thinner and leak. The heat can also affect your batteries.
