    Hello everyone,

    My in-laws are currently in the US and will fly back to Europe in a couple of weeks.

    I was thinking of asking them to bring me some aftershaves from the US. Does anyone know if aftershaves containing alcohol are permitted in commercial flights? I assume they'd have to be put in the main suitcase obviously.

    If anyone has good insight on this, I'd be grateful to hear from them.

    Cheers.

    Yes, shop away, let them know anything above 100ml must go into the checked luggage.

    Knock yourself out. I once carried 7 aftershave lotions for friends back home, from Germany. 5 Pitralons and 2 Speicks. Gotta take advantage of the situation :wink:

    Oh that's great to know, last time I visited home I wasn't sure of where the limit was so was worded the during the flight.

    I did do a great job of bubble wrapping the hell out of my purchases though!

    Then why Maggard does not send splashes to Europe?

    Because I think the rules for freight carriers are more strict.

    UK shops don't even want to ship splashed to continental Europe by air mail. And road transport is pretty expensive.
