Hassle Free Travelling With Your TGA Mobility Scooter
Make sure everything is in full working order before you go. Organise a maintenance check if possible to negate the risk of problems whilst you're away.
Ensure your battery is fully charged and take your charger with you.
Know the weight of your mobility scooter. A TGA Minimo is 24kgs without battery and 26.65 with the Li-ion battery.
A handy tip is to attach a tag to your scooter with the measurements and weight, so they are easy to access when you get asked.
Take a print out of the folding instructions for baggage handlers.
Check with the airline the type of batteries they allow on board. There is some information about the safety of your battery on a plane included in your manual. It may be worth photocopying this or taking your manual with you.
Attach a sticker to your mobility scooter stating the batteries you have.
Check your mobility scooters charge specifications and whether the charger takes 110volts and 60Hz. If not you will need a voltage converter, which you can get from any electronic equipment shop. Check with your supplier to see if they recommend any particular option.
