Airline Rules for Folding Mobility Scooters

Airline Rules for Folding Mobility Scooters


Fancy taking your folding mobility scooter abroad? Well we have done the research for you already

To travel on most airlines the lithium battery in the mobility scooter must be less than 300Wh capacity which all of our Betty&Bertie scooters comply with as like most mobility scooters. Some airlines may have a limit of a smaller amount of only 160Wh and so we do recommend checking with the airline that you're flying with before your date of travel. 

At Betty&Bertie, we carry a range of folding mobility scooter options that are suitable for travelling with as they fold down to a compact and easy to use scooter when in use or when travelling too. If you’re unsure whether your Betty&Bertie scooter complies with your airline's policy then have a look at our comparison table below.

To make it even easier for you we have the rules for travelling with a mobility scooter with Easyjet which is the most commonly used airline in the UK and their policy states:

“Wheelchairs and Mobility Equipment Wheelchairs and mobility that cannot be lifted manually into the aircraft hold will only be accepted for travel if both airports can provide the facilities to load / unload the device. 

Notifying us 48 hours prior to Your departure will enable Us to establish this and use reasonable efforts to accommodate Your needs.

Two items of mobility equipment (eg: wheelchairs, mobility aids) per passenger will be carried free of charge in addition to a Passenger’s Hold Baggage allowance.”

More information from Easyjet can be found here but with one of Betty&Bertie’s lightweight, foldable mobility scooters, you won’t ever face an issue when travelling abroad. We hope you found all the information you needed and we do always advise you to check with your airline before you travel as information can change frequently.
