  1. If you’re checking luggage no problem — just pack whatever you prefer in a sealed case (check out old “Dopp kits” for some great travel kits) and throw it in the suitcase.

    For carry-on, you’re out of luck. Razor blades aren’t going to make it onto an American plane, even in a safety razor cartridge. Most hotels will provide a cheap disposable razor upon request, however, and airport convenience stores usually sell them as well.

    You can’t bring liquids or gels but you can bring bar soaps, so consider sticking an old mug and some solid shaving soap in there along with a bristle brush. If you use a lotion or aftershave, a sealed 3 oz. container should make it on fine.

  2. A disposable razor should do the job for the meantime. They come in two types. The kind that is completely disposable (handle and all), or the kind where you replace them with cartridges.
