      Yes, that’s fine in checked luggage. I highly recommend packing it in a sealed bag, like a ziplock or something, that way if it leaks, it doesn’t get all over your other things.

    Can you put boxed wine in your checked luggage?

      Hi Vicki! You can pack boxed wine in your checked luggage, but make sure you cushion it well, and I highly recommend putting it into a big ziploc bag or something similar in case it leaks while in transit. Also keep in mind the weight limit of your checked luggage as determined by your airline, and if you’re flying internationally, make sure you know the rules of how much wine you’re allowed to bring in without having to pay customs fees.

    The TSA would not allow my coconut cream on. It was bigger than 3 oz. but I didn’t understand why they didn’t allow it

      Hi Tina! If it was bigger than 3.4 ounces, that would be why they confiscated it.

      Hi Willy! I can’t think of any reason why they wouldn’t allow that in your carry on bag. You could also look for disinfectant wipes instead, which might be easier to use and won’t count against your liquids limit.

    Question: I make my own homemade wine and store it in 2 liter plastic soda containers. The alcohol level would be about 12%. Can I bring 2 or 3 of these in my checked luggage during my domestic canadian flight?

    Thank you

      Hi Kathleen! I can’t find anything that prohibits homemade wine in checked luggage on a domestic flight, although most of what I’ve found references TSA (US) and international flights. There’s a link in this article to the Canadian customs rules, but again, that’s for international flights. My biggest concern would be if pressure changes would affect your plastic bottles while in transit. I don’t think there are rules against flying with your homemade wine in checked luggage, but if you decide to do it, definitely put them in bags or something in case they leak or burst, that way you don’t get wine all over everything else in your luggage. Sorry I can’t give you a more definite answer on this one!

        Hi Beverly, unfortunately I don’t know the customs laws of South Africa, so you’ll have to look that up to see how much alcohol they let you bring into the country.
