    Posted: 21 Jul 2012 at 5:00pm
Hi there. I was talking to someone yesterday who likes to just travel with hand luggage for speediness. I said how great that would be but what about my hairdryer and straightners - surely they have to go in the hold. My friend said she carries her's in her hand luggage and apart from an odd occasion when she's been asked to take them out of the bag, she's had no bother. Does anyone else take hair dryers or other electric stuff in hand luggage and has this been a problem?

I always put both items in my hand luggage as well as other electrical items and have never had any problems.

Our electrical stuff such as phone chargers, media player, adaptors, playstations etc always go in the hand luggage.

I don't know if they insist but this is what the DirectGov site states "You're allowed to take electrical items (like laptops and hairdryers) in your hand baggage, but they have to be removed and screened separately". (my underlining)

Always carry hairdryer, travel kettle/iron, cameras, chargers etc. in our rucksacks and have never been asked to remove them.  I have seen laptops screened separately.

We travelled back from Corfu last Monday and they were asking everyone to remove laptops for a separate check but nothing else. Don't know about knitting needles but I once left my eyebrow tweezers in my hand luggage and they were confiscated, don't know what they thought I was going to do with them!!!

It says tweezers are allowed so someone obviously didnt know what they were doing.
You cant argue with them though!!

Hi,
The easyJet site states that you cannot take knitting needles and I am also pretty sure that the pictures showing restricted items when you check in show tweezers. Well, I suppose you could always pluck someone to death!!! Wink


It's no wonder we all get confused when there is such conflicting information. I just play safe now and remove anything like tweezers, nail clippers, metal nail files etc. and put in my hold luggage.

Hi,
Yes I know, but it seems that the carriers have their own rules too and as I have said I'm pretty sure that the picture of restricted items at check in shows tweezers. Perhaps someone who is going soon can check that out for us.
