    Dumb question:

    Is 40oz 750ml? I am travelling and want to make sure I don't bring back to much. Bye the way the limit is way too little.

    Well...this is rather an odd place to post that question, but I'll help you out.

    40ozs=1200mls. Looks like you're going to have to drink 450 mls (15oz)!! Life could be worse.

    Now that we see the effects of partaking in some booze while posting, this thread has been moved to the After Hours Lounge. [​IMG]

    Canada only allows you to bring back 750ml of booze ? Pretty strict... Does that include beer ?

    I believe the US is 2 Litres, but depending on the source country, I have never been charged (I declared more after a trip to the BVI).

    The reason they do that is so that you can't skip the tax on more!!

    remember that you can bring more back, you just have to pay the duty on the amount above the limit. it's very cheap, usually 1 to 2 bucks a bottle, at most.

    Remember too that domestic airlines have their own cap on the amount of booze you can bring on. I went on holiday's to Victoria on Westjet and picked up a 24 of some of BC's finest, Lucky Lager. No luck getting all 24 cans of beer on my flight back to Edmonton, I was allowed 5 Liters of beer, which is about 16 cans I think. So I had to drink a couple and sold a 6 pack to the baggage handler.

    why would a canadian want to bring back beer from the states? I was mortified when I saw that you can buy beer in plastic bottles. I know how plastic ruined the taste of pop and can only imagine it would do the same to beer.
