How To Take Your Mobility Scooter Abroad
Travelling with a mobility scooter can seem daunting, but modern technology has made it easier by creating lightweight and compact scooters that can easily be transported. So whatever your level of mobility, you can still go anywhere you want!
To travel on most airlines the lithium battery in a mobility scooter must be less than 300Wh capacity.
Our mobility scooter capacities:
- Lupin: 360Wh or we sell an airline friendly model separately at 280wh
- Zinnia: 144Wh x2
As Lupin is over this capacity, it is not airline friendly. However, both of our auto folding models are beneath this capacity and so therefore can be taken with you on your air travels.
As our scooters are compact and lightweight, this makes your journey even easier. Simply fold the scooter and pull it along like a suitcase. It couldn’t be simpler!
We do advise that you check with the airline you are flying with as some have a smaller limit of 160Wh and the rules can change frequently.
We also advise that you let your airline know in advance that you plan to bring your mobility scooter with you on your travels to ensure they can make the appropriate arrangements for your flight.
You must let your airline know you are travelling with a mobility scooter as they will ask for the measurements of the mobility scooter and the battery specification which can be found in the product manual.
When you get to the airport you will need to check in and show all of your paperwork that would have been pre-filled upon contact with the airline. You can check in and ride your scooter all the way up to the gate.
When you get to the gate, you will be asked to remove the battery as this must be taken onboard with you in your hand luggage whilst the scooter gets taken down to the hold for the flight.
It’s that simple!
