Smokers may be wondering if e-cigarettes are worth the hype, and if they are especially worth it if they can be used when traveling. Cigarettes just seem so easy, you whip out your pack, light them up, and smoke till it’s through. Simple in thought and maybe experience, but e-cigs are even easier and more convenient, here’s how.
The answer to the question “can you travel with electronic cigarettes?” is yes. While they are not (yet) permitted for use on airplanes, we’re holding out for them being allowed at some point in the future, as they are no combustible, involve no fire, and should be treated like any other electronic devices. You can smoke them inside the airport, at the gate, right up till you board. Layovers, extended wait times, getting to the airport early before your flight can give you plenty of wait time, in which you can pass the boring time by with your e-cigarettes.
Other modes of traveling also won’t keep you limited to tobacco-only. If you are considering a cruise in the near future; be it a quick weekend jaunt to some nearby islands, or a luxurious 2 week sail through the Mediterranean, e-cigs can be your best friend. As the numbers of smokers continues to drop, so do the liberties allotted to them. Did you know that a number of cruise lines now only permit smoking in certain, designated areas to protect nonsmokers?
Even traveling by car is better with electronic cigarettes. Getting the car all foggy with smoke can be pretty gross. And then there are the butts and the ashes to deal with, during those long distances. You wouldn’t want to be littering all over the place, would you? If you are traveling with a nonsmoker, you may be waiting on the next rest-stop for a cigarette break, and who knows when that will be! Easy fix: e-cigs. In the car, during commutes and long distance travel they can be a life saver. No waste, no smell, no smoke, and no inconveniences to the people you are with.
As the future becomes increasingly smoke-free, when traveling it really makes more sense to be vaping. Are you thinking about an e-cigarette starter kit now? Where in the world would you travel with it, if you could take it anywhere?
