Will you be flying soon? Are you curious about whether toothpaste is allowed to travel with you? In this blog, we will tell you the answer.
When flying, you naturally want to look fresh and clean at your destination, but you are not allowed to take all your personal care products with you. Moreover, it is advisable not to take more than you need, which saves a lot of space and weight. Travelling with just hand luggage saves a lot of time on arrival. Moreover, personal care items such as toothpaste are better placed in your hand baggage. Super handy to have on hand in case of a transfer, or if your suitcase has unexpectedly flown to a different destination than you. Toothpaste, like many other personal care products, is allowed in your hand luggage. Here, in addition to the usual conditions for maximum size and weight, there are some additional requirements. Namely, you are not allowed to take too many liquids in your hand luggage.
Toothpaste Tablets Hotel Pack
Recommended price: €8
Is toothpaste a liquid then? Yes, or actually half liquid and half solid. Either way, gels, which includes toothpaste, are counted as liquids at the airport. You can bring as many liquids as you want, but it must fit in one 1-litre bag. This must be transparent and resealable. You are also allowed to bring a maximum of 100 ML of each liquid. A big bottle of shampoo that contains only a little bit is not allowed. Besides, it is a waste of unused space in your re-sealable bag. At the security checkpoint, you will have to fish the bag out of your hand luggage for screening, so make sure it is easy to grab.
Toothpaste comes in different shapes and sizes. The most common toothpaste is sold in a 75 ML tube. So it can go in your bag of liquids without a problem. However, you really need that space for so many other care products. Think deodorant, foundation and other liquid or gel make-up, shampoo, mouthwash, lens solution, body lotion, your favourite perfume and/or shaving foam. Before you know it, your bag is full of far more product than you need. After all, using up 75 ML of toothpaste requires quite a long trip. That’s why it’s better to carry how much you need. You can do this by transferring it to a smaller pack, which is thus mandatory for the large packs of 125 ML toothpaste. You can also choose to buy a special travel or hotel pack. These contain about 30 ML of toothpaste. Don’t want toothpaste to take up space in your liquids luggage at all? Then definitely consider toothpaste tablets!
If you want to take it with you when travelling, put toothpaste in your hand luggage. That way you’ll have it right at hand at your transfer or final destination. In a tube, it counts towards your maximum litre of liquids, including those little 30 ML hotel tubs. But you can get out of that. After all, toothpaste tablets are not a gel and therefore not a liquid. You can fill your whole bag with these, so to speak, although a bag full of pills might cause other problems with security. In any case, you can put a lot more in your (hand) luggage by taking toothpaste tablets. Of course, to save extra space, do not take more than necessary.
