With spring coming up, it can be a bit confusing trying to learn all the rules and customs regarding vaping at different places. To help guide you ensure the best possible experience, we’ve put together a quick summary of do’s and don’ts for a smooth vaping experience, wherever you go.
Read your instruction manual
Like any electronic, your Vype device comes with a set of instruction for use. These instructions are set in place to provide an optimal vaping experience.
Every country has different vaping laws and customs, so before you leave, we do recommend that you conduct some research to learn about your host country’s vaping laws to abide by. It is worth noting that vaping is completely banned in some countries so if you take your device to any of these destinations, you are at risk of having it confiscated at customs.
Methods of transport
Whether you’re arriving by land, sea or air, you have to adhere to the relevant set of rules – whether officially established by a governmental agency or by the operator of your transit. This includes:
Airports: Most airports and virtually all commercial airplanes do not allow vaping. However, you will find some airports in certain territories that have designated smoking and vaping areas, which are clearly marked. Packing your device is more complicated. Vapers must ensure their devices are not in the same bag as flammable materials and should never keep loose batteries near keys or coins. However, the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) has banned the transportation of vaping devices in checked luggage altogether, and 191 countries use ICAO guidelines to make their flight laws. Thus, after your research on your destination and all ports of entry, place your device in your carry-on luggage, ensuring that the device is completely switched off and not in the same bag as any flammable items. Also, please note that all eLiquid bottles and flavour cartridges count as liquids when you are passing through security.
Public Transport (Bus, Coach or Train): It is best to presume that you are not allowed to vape while on the move or at the station. While some bus/train stations do have designated smoking areas, you should identify these ahead or ask someone who works for the transport company where it’s okay to vape .
By car: If you’re in another person’s car (including taxis and ride-sharing vehicles), we advise you ask the driver if you can vape or not in their vehicle.
In Canada, hotels in most provinces do not allow vaping due to law prohibitions. It is advisable that you ask hotel staff what their in-room vaping policies are upon checking in. If they ask you not to, it will give you a chance to find out where acceptable vaping areas are within the property. If going abroad, it is advised to follow property policies to determine acceptable vaping areas, if any.
