  • Tips For Traveling With Liquids

    Filed Under: Blogging

The rules for liquids on planes have changed a lot in recent years. What should you know now about carrying liquids on board? Read on for the latest information. And make sure you have international travel insurance before you fly – without travel insurance you are at risk of an expensive medical bill should you fall ill or be injured.

The US authorities have deemed that liquids in small quantities, as well as aerosols and gels, pose no risk to passengers on flights. Small quantities means a one-bag-per-traveler policy – your liquids and cosmetics must fit into one small bag that will be x-rayed separately to save time.

One small bag doesn’t mean a bag the same size as your carry-on. You are allowed one quart-sized, clear plastic bag with a zip top. Inside it you can have bottles up to 100ml in size.

If you have larger bottles, put them in your checked luggage. Declare items that go over the limits, such as medications and baby formula or food. Officials may need to manually screen these items for extra security.
