E-cigs on holiday?

If you thought taking your e-cigs abroad was easy then think again.

Policies about using electronic cigarettes and whether this can be done in public vary from country.

Looking at the regulations for some of most popular European family holiday destinations - Spain, France, Germany, Italy and Greece, it is acceptable to e-smoke here!

If you are travelling to Turkey, Sweden, Belguim, Austria, Denmark or Norway, they have issued outright bans!

There are strict laws on all types of smoking in these countries already and as e-cigs are now being considered as an alternative to smoking, they are not sure where the product sits and they are currently banned.

 

Then to the question what about airlines policies?  Many airlines enforce their own regulations on the use of e-cigs and e-smoking/vaping on board, so it is best to check with them directly before checking in.

Emma Christou, MD of Liberro electronic cigarettes said: “We agree, it is confusing about the regulations as each countries policies vary, so if in doubt we would always advise that you check before you go about the country regulations and the airline policy.

“We have never had any problems packing e-cigs in our hand-luggage but in our experience we have not be able to e-smoke them on the plane yet.”
