    A few years ago when I did LL I travelled a few times with packs in my suitcase and had no problems... I'm now doing Cambridge and still travelling, but just wondered if anyone had had any problems travelling with packs in their suitcase?? I've only got Europe trips coming up, hopefully won't have any US trips while I'm doing this, but thinking of taking my pot of water flavouring and worried that it could be mistaken for something dodgy ~ a pot of white powder :confused:

    I asked about this for my hols in April.

    We can take the bars in hand-luggage but not the tetras. I would think it would be safer to put the shakes and powders into our hold luggage

    The tetras are over 100mls so are not allowed in hand luggage - the tetras travel well in the hold, though, put them in a carrier - just in case.

    Thanks guys! Was just wondering about them x-raying the suitcase - not taking anything other than a bar in hand luggage...
    For one of the trips (they are all for work) it is a trade show so I can ship stuff beforehand with our kit, just don't want to get hauled up somewhere and asked to explain myself!

    Is there like a customers services department at the airport or something you could phone and ask?

    I've never had a problem. I travelled with to Barbados, American with packs and bars in my main luggage. I've known people to take them to Jamacia and Australia with no problem. Always declare what you have ( don't want to get a fine) It maybe a good idea take an empty box if taking pack cause it list the ingredience.

    I've never travelled with them, but heard the Tetra expand under the pressure and could burst.

    I fly pretty frequently with work, and the 100ml hasn't changed. What has changed from SOME airports is that you can now take 2 bags on, but only from and to some airports... You still need all toiletries in a clear small bag and no more than 100ml per bottle.
    The BAA website is the best place for checking this kind of thing...
