How to break airport liquid rules

Trying to pack all your stuff for holiday into your hand luggage can be a nightmare! Especially when you've got to make sure all your toiletries are 100ml or less. 

But one savvy traveller has found a solution to dodge those pesky liquid guidelines. Gemma found boots allows you to click and collect items before you fly. You can collect it at the "inside" store once you've gone through security. 

Meaning you can take them straight on board with you as most airlines will let you take on one shopping bag on the plane. But boots day they must be ordered at least five days before so that you can choose your flight date as the day of collection. And remember that the 100ml rule will still apply on your way back so you might have to pack them in the hold for your return flight.

It could still be useful if you're planning on pilling the suncream though, plus boots website has a much larger choice of products that its airport stores. So you might be able to get your hands on products you wouldn't have been able to otherwise and even though items will be duty-free at the airport airside shop hike prices for travellers so it could be cheaper too.

#1 It's a beauty/pharmacy store in the UK and a few other places! From what I've read, they are now part of Walgreens who operate in the US?
