Hi guys, this one might sound a little daft. I'm going abroad for the first time in summer with my girlfriend and some of her family. I'm only taking hand luggage and I'm popping some condoms in there. However, I'm beginning to get a little worried about how strict airport security is gonna be. Will I have to get the pack of condoms out along with the rest of my liquids and stuff (and most certainly be looked down upon by my girlfriend's family), or will I be able to just leave them in my bag for the journey (saving me a lot of bother)?

Do what the drug smugglers do, try and conceal the condoms (drugs the for smugglers) in the under lining of the suitcase. You will need a sharp knife for this.

I watch too much of UK Border Force on TV...

theyre fine for carry on luggage as theyre not liquids. That being said if you feel somewhat nervous about them feel free to stash them inside something else.

Thanks guys! Hopefully I won't need to go drug smuggler and stash them in the lining of my case. Big weight of my shoulders there. I think I'd be exiled from my girlfriend's family if I had to declare I had a twelve pack of ribbed condoms haha :colondollar:

They'd be safe in your pocket, the liquids thing is because the scanners can only deal with a certain amount of liquids, just if you do that it may be awkward if you get searched because of a metal press stud or something

The only thing you will have to worry about is if there is something else that looks dodgy on a bag scan and they insist on unpacking your bag right there and then in front of your gf's family.

Otherwise you'll have nothing to worry about.

No liquids, pastes or gels except in a transparent resealable bag.

If your girlfriend is taking proper luggage to put in the hold why not get her to pack them in there where there's no chance of anyone else accidently seeing them.

Given that you have to empty your pockets in front of everyone else in the queue before going through the beepy thing, that's probably not the greatest advice anyone has ever been given.

Also I'm pretty sure that's not the reason for the liquid procedure...

sorry to bump an old thread but the liquids are there because of a 2006 plot to use liquid explosives on aeroplanes
