TSA’s 3-1-1 Rule Explained

TSA’s 3-1-1 Rule Explained

The 3-1-1 rule is one of the most frequently searched of all TSA inquiries in Google and other search engines. If you don’t understand what’s expected of you when it comes time to head through a TSA checkpoint, it can really hold up the line and irritate those who did their research ahead of time and came prepared when you did not.

Listen to Erin from Custom Memories Travel, outlining exactly what all the fuss is about:


The 31in a nutshell:

  • Liquids, gels, aerosols, creams and pastes must be 3.4 ounces (100ml) or less per container.
  • Must be in 1 quart-sized, clear, plastic, zip-top bag;
  • 1 bag per passenger placed in screening bin. The bag limits the total liquid volume each traveler can bring.
