The main reasons why travelers often need a wheelchair or mobility support device when traveling abroad are disease/illness, natural aging or injury. If you or a loved one is thinking of traveling in the near future, there are many reasons why renting rather than purchasing expensive medical equipment might be advantageous. Because travel is a temporary endeavor, wheelchair rentals for the duration of your trip are often less expensive than buying one.
Some injuries also, require you to use a wheelchair for a short period of time. When patients suffer a fracture, for example, they are required to avoid putting stress on the injury for a short while. In such cases, purchasing a wheelchair to assist with recovery will not make financial sense. If the disability is temporary, it is often a better idea to rent a wheelchair. Rentals of wheelchairs are often covered by insurance plans. Whether you’re going on vacation by plane, cruise ship or decide to use a car rental service, it is important to know that scooters, electric wheelchairs and wheelchairs can all fit these means of transportation and can make getting to and around your preferred destination a much more pleasurable experience.
Always call ahead when traveling to a destination to arrange to have a rented wheelchair ready for you upon arrival. Taking your own wheelchair with you on vacation can be burdensome, but renting a device at your destination is convenient and stress-free. If you are traveling for a long period of time, look at the cost difference between renting and purchasing a new wheelchair. If you plan to use the wheelchair in the short term, renting one from Mediplus Mobility will help you save money in the long run.
