Did You Know? You Can Take Water Bottles Through Airport Security

By  | 

Plastic or metal, you can take water bottles through TSA security at the airport — they just need to be empty.

TSA Water bottles are allowed through security

This might be old news to frequent travelers, but for the casual travelers this might come as a pleasant surprise.

A great solution to the current options of paying high prices for water at airport shops or going under-hydrated. Just note that your actual results may vary based on the TSA agent you get since official policy sometimes gets interpreted differently.

I would suggest taking the empty water bottle out of your luggage and placing it in one of the trays so if there is an issue with it, you’re not slowed down by them rooting through your stuff.

I’m currently testing out several collapsible water bottles to find a more space-efficient way of carting my own water.
