Mobility Aids Travel Insurance
You should check that when you are purchasing your Travel Insurance policy, there is a cover for the Mobility Aids you will be travelling with and any medical costs that arise from your impairment.
It is advisable to take out cover even if you are travelling within the United Kingdom or the Channel Islands. This is especially important if you take Special Equipment like a Wheelchair.
Our policy covers if your Mobility Aid is lost, stolen or damaged during your trip for reasonable repair or replacement. We also offer cover for the temporary replacement hire of a Mobility Aid.
To contact us by telephone, 0800 043 0020 / 01273 092 757.

Airlines must allow you to carry such devices without intruding on your carry-on weight budget if you require a Mobility Aid.
Lightweight Mobility Aids, such as a smaller Wheelchair or a Walking Stick, can be kept in the plane's passenger area, but other Mobility Aids, such as motorized Wheelchairs, will be safely stored away.
If you require a Mobility Aid and plan on going on holiday, alert the Airline that you are travelling with a Mobility Aid as early as possible.
This will allow them to make any special preparations necessary for your travel, including designating you an aisle seat, which is vital for easy access.
Arrangements can also be made to ensure you have any required help at the Airport. There is often space in the Airport to store Wheelchairs, which are prioritized over other luggage.
If your Wheelchair is not being kept with you on the plane, make sure you put tags on it with your details, plus any information on how to dismantle it that may be necessary.
