Mobility Aids Travel Insurance

You should check that when you are purchasing your Travel Insurance policy there is 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 are taking Special Equipment, such as a Wheelchair.

The policy that we provide covers if your Mobility Aid is lost, stolen or damaged during your trip, for reasonable repair or replacement. We also offer cover for replacement temporary hire of a Mobility Aid.

Travel Advice

If you require the use of a Mobility Aid, Airlines have to allow you to carry on such devices without impinging on your carry on weight budget.

Light weight Mobility Aids, such as a smaller Wheelchair or a Walking Stick, can be kept in the passenger area of the plane, but other Mobility Aids, such as motorized Wheelchairs, will be safely stored away.

If you require the use of a Mobility Aid and are planning on going on holiday, alert the Airline 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; vital for easy access.

Arrangements can also be made to ensure you have any help required whilst at the Airport. There is often space on the Airport to store Wheelchairs and these are given priority 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 details on how to dismantle it that may be necessary.
