With more restrictions being lifted for those that are fully vaccinated, traveling within the U.S. is expected to pick back up this year. The SmartScoot mobility scooter, with its compact size and overall travel-friendly design, will surely accommodate just about any travel adventure you undertake.
Thanks to SmartScoot’s flexibility, airport travel is made even more accessible. Weighing only 40 pounds when fully assembled, the SmartScoot mobility scooter breaks down into smaller, lightweight parts and can easily be re-assembled once you arrive at your destination.
When traveling, SmartScoot also has a luggage rack feature that allows you to carry small luggage throughout the airport. Unlike other scooters, this feature comes standard with the SmartScoot and is convenient for carrying small bags and a variety of miscellaneous items. This rack also gives you the freedom to travel easily as it takes away the stress that carrying luggage can bring.
If you’re concerned about not being able to bring your SmartScoot onboard an aircraft, we’ve got you covered! SmartScoot mobility scooters are accepted on airlines such as United, British Airways, Delta, and American Airlines. SmartScoot also complies with Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations for traveling with mobility scooters and lithium-ion batteries. The majority of airlines require the battery to be removed for inspection, and this can quickly be done by sliding the battery holder latch and disconnecting the battery cord. Before arriving at the airport, you should contact the airline and make the necessary arrangements to accommodate your SmartScoot. You may also want to reach out to the TSA Cares helpline, and they will be able to brief you on the screening policy and what to expect when you arrive at the security checkpoint.
No matter the destination, we all know the stress traveling can bring. SmartScoot is made to not only make travel more accessible, but they’re also designed to make the experience less stressful. As many of us look forward to travel picking back up in 2021, we hope that SmartScoot will help make the experience even more enjoyable. Click here to learn more about the SmartScoot mobility scooter!
