Vaping is all the rage and has far surpassed traditional smoking as the desirable way to get your nicotine fix. Vaping is thought to be healthier, more sanitary, and cast a far less objectionable odor into the air. Still, there are a few tips and tricks that you will want to observe before firing up your vape pen while traveling.
Understand The Laws Of The Place That You Are Traveling
All countries have their own sets of rules when it comes to vaping, and it pays to familiarize yourself with them. Depending on where you are traveling, the results could be disastrous. Take the time to learn the local customs and adhere to them abroad.
Assume The Rules For Vaping Are The Same For Smoking
Some people think that since vaping odors are often less offensive than traditional cigarette smoke, that they can just vape anywhere that they want. Vaping makes some people uncomfortable, and secondhand fumes can be considered a health hazard. Avoid vaping in places where smoking is prohibited, and always ask whether or not it is okay to vape when sharing a place with people eating food. The golden rule to remember is that just because it doesn’t bother you does not mean that someone else isn’t negatively affected. Be courteous and step away if there is an objection.
Avoid Vaping On The Airplane
Some vapers think that they can slip into the airplane bathroom and get a quick fix without anyone being the wiser. Nothing good will come of you sneaking a puff, and you might face serious fines and consequences for doing so. Airplanes are non-vaping and non-smoking environments. There is a silver lining, however. The TSA allows you to bring your vape pen and some liquid on the airplane. Make sure that you follow the security rules regarding bringing liquid goods onto the airplane. If you don’t adhere to the TSA standards, your vape pen and liquid could be confiscated.
Don’t Vape In Your Hotel Or AirBnb
Unless your hotel room or Airbnb is specifically a smoking friendly destination, take your vape outside. Most of the time, your room will be designated as a no-smoking zone, and you should take that to mean all types of smoking, including vaping. If you are caught, you could face severe fines and might even be ejected from your room. If you are an avid vaper, get a smoke-friendly room, or find one with an attached balcony where you can vape to your heart’s content.
Although vaping is largely more socially acceptable than smoking, there are still plenty of rules to follow. Be a considerate vaper while traveling.
