Does anyone know whether it's OK to take a couple of gel sachets through airport security, if I put them in the see-thru plastic bag with my toiletries?
Yes its fine in the plastic bag. I've taken them before no problems. Going anywhere nice?
As long as they don't individually exceed 100ml - and I think there's a limit that all your little sachets and other liquids in your see-through bag don't come to a total of 1 litre... but only 90% of that particular figure.
There is indeed a one litre limit in total. My OH had to ditch some stuff on our last trip, as security took his luggage to pieces.
That is the downside of travelling hand-luggage only!
Thanks for encouraging and practical responses everyone. My partner just treated me to a Madrid trip in April. It'll be two weeks before the London Marathon so I will be needing to do a longish run some time while we're out there. At some point I was going to post a separate thread on suggesting running routes in Madrid. But if anyone has any suggestions at this point I'd be very happy to hear them
Thanks TPF for the link to the Madrid Half. I didn't spot your posting then saw it today - and guess what, it was five hours before the discounted pre-booking offer closed. So I booked just in time, and am hugely looking forward to it. Thanks again and a happy new year.
