Mobility Scooter Rentals-Consider For Your Next Vacation

Aug 17, 2007
Electric and gas mobility scooters have become extremely popular in the last decade or so. For many people with limited mobility due to disabilities, or health or age-related issues, mobility scooters have helped them lead more of a normal and active lifestyle. If you have limited mobility and are planning to travel, you may want to consider incorporating a scooter rental into your trip.

There are many reasons to rent a mobility scooter for your next vacation. If you are traveling with others, you will be more independent and able to get around quicker and easier. Traveling can be fun, but it can also be tiring. By driving your mobility scooter, instead of continuously walking, you will be able to conserve more energy, and really be able to enjoy the sights, without becoming exhausted.

Mobility scooter rentals have become increasingly accessible. Depending on your travel needs, there is a chance you will be easily able to find a rental. If you are taking a cruise, or plan to vacation at a well-developed tourist destination such as Florida, there will be many places that have scooters available. In fact, many will deliver the scooter straight to your hotel room, or to the cruise ship.

The best time to start your scooter rental process is before you leave for your trip. You will find many national and local rental companies online. You can review the different models available, and in many cases book and make the reservation right from the website. Of course, you can always telephone for your reservation, but it is a good idea to take a look online and see what type of models you are interested in. Usually, rental mobility scooters are electric powered, which makes them convenient to use.

Renting a mobility scooter is similar to renting a car. You will have to provide your credit card, and the rental company will have a variety of charges, such as the deposit, insurance, and daily or weekly rental fees. You may also be able to get a better deal if you ask about weekly specials, or provided discounts. The company will also take any special requirements into consideration, such as height or weight restrictions. At the end of your trip, they will normally come and pick-up the scooter, or arrange for you to drop it off, if that is convenient for you.

Even if you do not normally use a mobility scooter, you may want to think about renting one for your next vacation. If you are concerned about limited movement and dependency issues, having a scooter will greatly add to your vacation enjoyment. You may appreciate having the scooter so much, you will want to purchase one for your daily use when you return!
