How To Travel With A Scooter – Scooter Travel Tips
This is 2018, As you start to get more into scootering, you may find yourself wondering “how can I take this with me wherever I go?” We hope to cover the answer in this post. One thing to pay attention to is the type of scooter that you own. I’m sorry, but if you have a razor pocket mod, that isn’t going to make it on the plane anytime soon. If you have a basic standup scooter, there are many ways that you can take it with you on the go.
1. Portable Folding Scooters are the Easiest to Travel with
These are obviously the easiest to travel with. Foldable scooters like the razor kick scooters make excellent travel companions because they can easily be folded up so that they take up very little space. This is perfect not only for weekend road trips but also just for storing in your backpack while you are at work or at school. It is really convenient to have it on you at all times in case you can’t get a cab or if you simply want to get a little extra exercise.
2. Foldable Electric Scooters are Great Help for Travelling
These ones are the next best to travel with but they are a bit hard to come by. Most electric scooters do not fold up completely and the ones that do are generally quite expensive. Even if you have these ones, be sure to ask the airline ahead of time if you are allowed to travel with foldable electric scooters because it is really annoying when you need to leave these behind. If you get them taken away, that is even worse. Some electric scooters cost a few hundred dollars, which is a very expensive toy to leave behind with TSA.
3. Non-foldable Scooters are the Hardest to Deal With
These ones are obviously the hardest to deal with, and when it comes to air travel you are out of luck. The good news is most scooters that don’t fold can be stored easily in the trunk of a car or in the back seat. This is useful if you like to go on day trips, maybe to either the skate park or to some off-road trails nearby. For most people, this is all you need. Some people really need to travel by air in order to get to certain scooter competitions, but generally they use smaller scooters so they don’t need to worry about this too much.
Hopefully this has helped serve as a quick scooter travel guide. This guide works better if you are considering buying a scooter and wondering which one to get. If you tend to travel a lot by plane and want to take your scooter with you, you absolutely need to get a foldable kick scooter. There isn’t really another option in terms of air travel. If you like to bring your scooter to work or on a road trip, You can definitely get away with a foldable electric scooter. Lastly, if you either don't travel at all or only travel in the car, you may be able to get away with a non-foldable.
