Traveling with Your Electric Scooter: A Guide to Sending it By Airplane

As the popularity of electric scooters continues to grow, more and more people are wondering how to travel with their devices – specifically, how to send an electric scooter by airplane. Given the various restrictions and guidelines surrounding airline travel and battery-powered devices, we’ve put together a comprehensive guide on the steps you need to take when flying with your electric scooter.

  1. Understand airline restrictions: First and foremost, it’s important to know that airlines have specific rules and regulations when it comes to transporting electric scooters. To avoid any unexpected complications, visit your chosen airline’s website or reach out to their customer service to learn about their policies on lithium-ion batteries and mobility devices.

  2. Check the battery size: The crucial factor that airlines consider when approving the transport of electric scooters is the device’s battery size. Generally, airlines allow passengers to carry lithium-ion batteries up to 100-160 watt-hours (Wh) in their carry-on luggage. Make sure you review your electric scooter’s battery capacity and remove it from the scooter for transport if necessary.

  3. Proper battery packaging: If your electric scooter’s battery falls within the approved size range, it’s important to appropriately package it for the journey. Place the battery in a separate protective case or ensure it is securely attached. Additionally, use tape to cover the battery’s terminals to avoid short-circuits during transport.

  4. Contact your airline ahead of time: Once you’re familiar with your chosen airline’s policies and have prepared your electric scooter, inform the airline about your intention to transport it. This will give the airline ample time to review your scooter’s specifications and arrange any necessary accommodations.

  5. Get to the airport early: On the day of your flight, arrive at the airport early to ensure adequate time for the airline staff to determine the best way to transport your electric scooter – whether it needs to be sent via cargo or if it can be stored in the aircraft’s cabin. Be prepared for security screening of your scooter and battery.

By following these steps and familiarizing yourself with the airline’s specific guidelines, you can safely and easily send your electric scooter by airplane, making it more convenient than ever to travel with your favorite mode of transportation.
