Travel Size Sunscreen

One of the things we love best about living in the UK is the ability to hop on a plane and enjoy so many brilliant destinations in Europe and beyond.

But snapping up those cheap flights has a few drawbacks, such as trying to cram all your favourite holiday essentials into a cabin-size bag. Travel size toiletries and minis when travelling with cabin luggage are a must; they save precious room in your bag and enable you to stick to the 100ml regulations for all checked in luggage.

We often get asked the question: what size sunscreen can I take on a plane? So to help with that, we’ve put together a list of what liquids are allowed in your hand luggage for when you’re planning your next trip.

What can I take in my hand luggage?

You are allowed to include liquids in your hand luggage but bear in mind: *

Containers must hold a maximum of 100ml. Anything larger may be confiscated by security officials.
Containers holding toiletries must be in a single, transparent, resealable plastic bag. You can pick these up just before heading to the scanners. You’ll need to show its contents to the airport security.
Remember – it’s one plastic bag per passenger
The bag must be able to close and seal (it can’t be knotted or tied!)
Most airports will have bags available at security, they do sometimes charge for them.
