“It will change your life…it changed mine.”
“Let me set the stage…it’s August 2022, I am 53 years old and was diagnosed with primary progressive MS over 16 years ago. I bought my Travelscoot in May of 2018 as I felt that I lost some of my independence as I was no longer able to really go anywhere without my wife pushing me in a wheelchair. We were on a cruise in 2017 where I rented a transport chair that was delivered to the cabin, but that was not ideal as I could not do anything without the help of my wife, and I felt she was also trapped. Went to an accessible travel workshop when we got back home and saw this lady ‘scoot’ in on this shiny minimalistic scooter. I was basically sold. Didn’t pay any attention to the workshop and just stared at the scooter.
Since that day, we have been on multiple trips and my TravelScoot has accompanied me on all of them. It’s seen 10 countries, 2 cruises, 2 road trips, 5 flights with 4 different airlines and not one issue.
We just got back from our latest trip to Europe where we visited 12 cities on a combination of a road trip through northern Italy and neighbouring countries followed by an Adriatic cruise. It’s been through rain, gravel, European cobblestone, salt water splashes by piers, you name it. It even survived a tip over when I drove into a pothole. My ego was bruised but the scooter took a lickin’ and kept on tickin’.
So it has obviously changed the way I travel but it has also allowed me to go for walks with my wife, go to the mall for Christmas shopping, visit my kids in University and so much more.
If you are thinking this might work for you…stop thinking and make the purchase…it will change your life…it changed mine.”

“I’m proud to say I just surpassed 3,100 km on my TravelScoot!”
“Since purchasing my TravelScoot in July of 2015, it has been in eleven countries, flown on six different airlines, and travelled on three 3 different cruise ships. I’m proud to say I just surpassed 3,100 km on my TravelScoot!”

“As a Para Equestrian member of Team Canada, I have traveled to many places using my Travel Scoot. I put so many miles on the first, I’m on my second one! I’m more than satisfied with it. Thank you TravelScoot Canada.”

“I spend hours doing things that I couldn’t do for some time.”
“What a difference the TravelScoot has made to my life, not only on a cruise ship but at the shopping malls etc. It is so light I can lift it in and out of the rear of my car no problem. I take off now to malls and spends hours doing things that I couldn’t do for some time. I recently took my husband to Costco. He was stuck with the shopping cart while I scooted all over the store. Guess who was the most tired?”

“I haven’t had this much fresh air in years.”
“As promised, here I am (looking a little windblown) on my first polar expedition on the new Travelscoot! It was still freezing cold but dry, so I couldn’t wait any longer. Since then I’ve made a trip over to see my grandkids 2 miles away and back again on a beautiful sunny day. Haven’t had that much fresh air in years. And I went alone, whereas I would have had to depend on my husband to push my travel wheelchair for any outdoor travel before.”

“Here I am in downtown Milan last week. The scoot was brilliant, and I went everywhere with it. In and out of stores, over some pea-gravel paths and a fair amount of cobblestones – it was terrific.”
The TravelScoot Easily fits in my smart car!
“I can now scoot further than I could ever have dreamed of walking.”
“My name is Connie and I’m 81 years young. I have trouble walking any distance as my knees aren’t what they used to be. It is very painful and sometimes give out without any notice. I’ve always been hesitant about getting a mobility scooter as I thought it would make me look older than I am.”
”The best part of all is I can put it into the back of my car without the help of anyone. I used to love to go to Butchart Gardens, I had to stop about 7 years ago because I couldn’t walk all the way around and felt “too old” to have my husband push me in a wheel chair. Besides, he can no longer push me that far in a wheel chair. Now that I have my TravelScoot, I go all the time. If time permits, I even go around the gardens twice! My TravelScoot has given me back my quality of life. To me, my TravelScoot is priceless and I wouldn’t trade it for anything.”

“Long story short ….. it was the best decision we ever made”
“The TravelScoot caught my husband Tim’s attention because he has a very difficult time walking. He didn’t really like being pushed around in a wheel chair so often chose to stay home instead of being pushed around somewhere. We purchased the TravelScoot before a trip overseas. We were nervous about taking this new piece of equipment overseas as we were unsure how it would fit in cars over there. We were also nervous to leave the wheelchair at home.
Long story short ….. it was the best decision we ever made. Right from the beginning, it made getting through the airport so much easier for both of us. Tim was independent (and loved the feeling!), which allowed me to look after the luggage and everything else instead of pushing a wheelchair. It’s amazing how quick and easy it was for Tim to fold and unfold and put in the large carry bag.
Tim did and went places in England that he would have never gone/done if it wasn’t for the TravelScoot. It was amazing. Cars over there are so much smaller than here, but it fit in even the smallest of cars there.”
“After the TravelScoot experience in England, there was no hesitation in planning other vacations. We have been to The British Virgin Islands (3 planes to get there), New York and Mexico. Three places that we had never been before and don’t think we would have gone if it wasn’t for the TravelScoot.
It has also made a huge difference to Tim going on short-distance trips and local places. Before he would usually say “no” (didn’t want to be pushed around in a wheelchair). However, since the TravelScoot he very rarely says “no”. When we have relatives visit us from England, he goes everywhere, Niagara Falls, ferry to the Toronto Island, baseball games, etc. It’s also great for trips to the mall and restaurants.
We have a car with a regular trunk and Tim has no trouble getting it in and out of the trunk.
Everywhere we go someone ends up stopping Tim to ask him about it. In summary, Tim (and I) are so pleased with the TravelScoot.”

“I took it places I didn’t think I could…”
“The TravelScoot made all the difference in my holiday and I took it places I didn’t think I could including street cars in Melbourne. It went up hills steeper than I thought it could. Air Canada had no trouble with it and I don’t think I was ever close to running the battery down.
Here’s an anecdotal story that you might not want to print. Coming out of the theatre on the ship one night around 11:30 pm, two young girls (in their late 20’s I would say) thought the scooter was quite cute and wanted a ride (I think they’d had a few drinks). I’m 59 but one of my friends who was on the cruise with me has a picture of these two, one sitting on each leg with my face in the middle. They said “bring your friends to the disco.” I pointed out that one of the people they referred to wasn’t my friend – it was my wife!
It was all pretty funny. So there’s another marketing angle for you – the scooter can help you pick up women! Kidding aside, it was great and made an enormous difference for the entire cruise.”

“I was stopped at least 10 times and asked about it. The luggage guys and anyone at the airport were super impressed at how small and light it was.”
“Saved my life in the gigantic land of Las Vegas.”
“What a great little scooter!!!! Saved my life in the gigantic land of Las Vegas. I wanted to let you know that I am very pleased and look forward to my life opening up with a little help from my TravelScoot :)”
