Unfortunately, you do have to keep a few practical issues in mind when you are considering whether to bring a scooter with you on holiday. Here are a few questions to ask yourself:
- Can you take a scooter on a plane? There aren’t really any hard-and-fast rules here – it depends on the given airline’s policies. So, you should check with the airline that they’ll be fine with you bringing along a scooter (or however many your group ends up with!). If so, will it be in hand carry or as check-in baggage? Your scooter’s exact dimensions are likely to be a big factor, too.
- Can the scooter be folded? Not all scooters are foldable, but the good news is that many of them are. You’ll likely be thankful for that when you need to take your scooter onto a bus or train, for example, and can fold it to minimise the amount of space it takes up. Those carriages can get pretty cramped during the summer, after all.
- What terrain will you likely encounter? If you are set to spend your entire break in urban settings, there will hopefully be ample room to scoot along the flat pavements. If, though, you are likely to come across undulating, lumpy and/or muddy conditions, do you plan to scoot on these surfaces or not? The more difficult the ground is, the more likely that your scooter could become unstable, dirty or even damaged during the trip.
