Travel mobility scooters are a fantastic option for a scooter if you are looking for support when you are out and about. This scooter type is one of the lightest and smallest models, as this helps with portability when travelling. You do not need a driving licence or to pay road tax to use a mobility scooter.
Travel mobility scooters are considered class 2 models, limiting them to 4mph, and they can only be used on footpaths and not roads. Only class 3 models can exceed four mph and go on roads. Despite the speed limit, it is still quicker than walking (average speed of 2-3mph), and if you struggle with mobility or need support, then a scooter can help keep your independence.
Portability is the main feature kept in mind when a travel mobility scooter is designed. They can easily be folded away or dismantled, making storage easy and perfect for transportation as they can easily fit in a car boot. Models like Rascal Smilie and One Rehab Globe trotter are excellent folding mobility scooters for travel.
As travel mobility scooters are narrow, they are easy to control and get about on them. The lightweight design of the scooter allows you to move around swiftly and accurately. So even around sharp corners or around busy crowds, you will easily be able to get from a to b.
