It was a long and hard winter, but summer is in the air! Memorial Day is just around the corner and before you know it, you’ll be wearing white slacks and funning in the sun. This post provides links to a cornucopia of answers to questions that travelers frequently ask us. In addition to this post, be sure to visit our travel tips at TSA.gov.
- Deodorant: Stick deodorant is not limited to 3.4 oz. or less, but gel or spray deodorant is.
- Powdered Toothpaste: This is fine in both checked and carry-on bags and does not apply to the 3-1-1 rules.
- Suntan & Sun Block Lotion: Lotions – both pump and aerosol - fall under the procedures that I mentioned above. Sun block sticks do not fall under this rule.
- Beverages: Wine, liquor, beer, and all of your favorite beverages are permitted in your checked baggage. You can also bring beverages packaged in 3.4 oz. or less bottles in your carry-on bags in the baggie.
- Gel Inserts for shoes are now permitted.
- Foods: Here is a list of items that should be placed in your checked bags or shipped: creamy dips and spreads (cheeses, peanut butter, dressings), jams, jellies, maple syrup, oils and vinegars, sauces and soups.
