Trimmer in  Hand Luggage

Is trimmer in hand luggage allowed on Airlines? Find out Now

Want to carry your trimmer in hand luggage?

But not sure whether the airline allows it?

We understand. There are so many rules with airline security that its so confusing.

There are different rules for each item (powerbank, laptop etc), and you never know whats allowed/ non-allowed in handbag/check-in.

Worry not. We'll help you sort his out.

The short answer is YES. Almost all airlines allow trimmer in hand luggage

How do we know this? We searched quite a few airline sites for baggage policies.

We also checked responses by airlines on social media. 

We even talked to airline crew about it.

Lets look at domestic airlines first.

Here is Indigo responding to a customer on X (prev. Twitter) on the same.

BTW, the airlines don't get to decide what you are allowed to carry.
That decision is left to the respective government authority (e.g. DGCA in India)

So, if Indigo says it's OK, any other domestic airline should not be a problem. The security check is common for all Airlines.

Travelling International?

Checkout this screenshot from the social media handle of TSA, the regulatory organization from America.

TSA is infamous for making life miserable for passengers :)

If TSA allows this, you won't have any issue with airlines flying to/in other countries.

That said, please note that following:

a) We are talking about regular trimmers (e.g. Philips) with regular blades. If your trimmer is an out of the ordinary item that security feels could be a potential threat, be prepared for surprises.

b) Trimmers are allowed but removable batteries are not. If your trimmer uses removable batteries, you may be asked to dispose them at security. Better to carry the batteries in your check-in bag.

c) Airlines of different countries may have different rules. Check your airline’s website or contact them directly to before your international flight.

Apart from this it, is safe to conclude that you can carry your trimmer in hand luggage. We have personally done it countless times.

So worry not, and have a nice trip

Hey Traveller, Do you also make the mistake of packing your regular bath towels for your trips?

What do you do when it's time to checkout, and your towel hasn't dried yet?

Pack that soggy towel in a plastic cover, and stink up your entire bag?

Or how about when the bulky turkey towel takes up all the space in your bag?

Now you struggle to fit in all your other stuff. Plus your bag is now heavy and bulky right?

Truth be told, the Towels we use everyday are not at all suited for Travel

Gamchas/ Thin cotton towels don't absorb well, and take forever to dry

Bulky terry towels absorb well but take longer to dry. Plus they waste baggage space.

Switch to the Travel Towel Instead

No more packing wet towels

No more waiting for your towel to dry

No more packing bulky turkey towels that waste luggage space
