Spring is approaching fast, signalling the time when many hit the holiday sites to nab a good deal for a summer getaway. When you’re booking a holiday, you’re thinking about finding the best deal, organising flights and deciding what you want to do whilst you’re there. Closer to the time you’re focus is on buying some new clothes, stocking up on sun cream and fantasising about being next to the pool in exactly 2 weeks, 4 days, 12 hours & 41 minutes time.
But as a mobility scooter user there’s something you’ve still not considered, your mobility. Perhaps you’re going to see some sights, or maybe you’re planning on spending your evenings strolling along the beach front. But, you know you get tired after a couple of minutes walking. You need a mobility scooter you can take with you and the options are limited. Read on to find out what to consider when it comes to taking mobility scooters on planes, as well as what type of scooter is best to take on your holiday.
The Yoga Folding Scooter
When it comes to travelling abroad, there’s one scooter that we’d recommend due to its lightweight design, easy folding mechanism & compact form factor. The Yoga Folding Scooter has a total weight of 26 Kg, ensuring you don’t have any troubles at the airport or during your stay. An ample range of 10 miles allows you to travel for hours on the Yoga Folding Scooter, allowing you to enjoy your day without fatigue getting in the way.
Not only does the Yoga Folding scooter offer easy travel abroad, it also offers comfort which is something that’s vital when you’re on your holidays. Suspension on the Yoga soaks up bumps in the road so you can glide along and relax. It’s also durable, with an 18 stone max user weight, making it great for most users and one of the strongest folding scooters.
