Hey Travelers! Have you ever wondered if you can bring a large gallon water bottle with you in your carry-on or checked luggage? Today, we are going to be exploring wether or not you can pack a reusable water bottle. Let’s find out!
The good news is that you are allowed to bring an empty plastic or metal water bottle in both your checked luggage and your carry-on. However, there’s a small catch – you can’t fill up your water bottle all the way before going through security. That’s because the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has rules about carrying liquids through the security checkpoint. When you are going through security, you can’t have liquids no more than 3.4 ounces (100 ml).
Do not fear about whether or not you can fill your reusable water bottle. Once you’ve successfully passed through security, you can find water filling stations near your gate or even use the water fountains that are available. This way, you can hydrate and be ready for your flight without any worries.
Bringing an empty water bottle and refilling it post-security comes in handy. Not only does it help you stay refreshed during your journey, but it also saves you from spending extra money on bottled water at the airport.
So, the next time you’re packing for a trip, consider bringing an empty water bottle in your carry-on. It’s a simple yet effective way to stay environmentally friendly, well-hydrated, and avoid any hiccups at the security checkpoint.
