I have a condition that over time has, and I gather, will continue to weaken my leg muscles. I have used sticks, crutches and a wheelie, but that doesn’t help with long distances. I am then dependent on friends and family to push me in a wheelchair, which is not always practical, so I often miss out on the outing or walk.

Enough of this…I am only 59 and with an overseas trip to Greece looming, my husband and I went looking for a foldable mobility scooter.

After looking, and trying many that were too heavy or had to be pulled apart, I found my Luggie Elite. 

It is red which is most important.. but it is also light enough for me to fit into the boot of my car, light enough for my husband to carry up stairs if need be, easy and quick to fold.  It is as easy to pull on the support wheels as pulling a suitcase and the various coach drivers and taxi drivers we encountered, were very impressed, asking lots of questions. 

Off we went to Greece, which is known for mountains and lots of steps. A good place to test out Luggie. 

It was easy and quick to load into bus holds, plane holds, on and off cruise ships, onto and off ship tenders. 

It was narrow enough to fit into small lifts, into any size hotel room or through the narrow cruise ship cabin doorway, the narrow paths of Mykonos, the narrow corridors of the cruise ship, narrow aisles in shops in Rhodes, Crete and the many walkways of Santorini.  Luggie got me to top of the Acropolis, around the huge National Archaeological Museum and the Plaka district in Athens, around most of the ancient ruins of Olympia, Knossos on Crete, and down to John’s Grotto on Patmos. It exceeded our expectations and I did more than I thought I would have been able to. Obviously it can’t do steps, so I still need my husband with me when travelling especially so it develops teamwork. 

I have a freedom and independence, I thought I would never feel again. 

Luggie and I are going to have lots of adventures together.

The Luggie Elite (22.9.14) has flown and sailed all over the world with us without any problems.  I have had absolutely no problem booking it onto aircraft except when they want to translate the stated 10.5 ah to Wattage hours (Wh) to check against their limits. We discovered that this is becoming more critical  because of regulations concerning carriage of Lithium batteries and airlines require that those batteries for mobility scooters must not exceed 300 Wh for one battery vehicles. ( The actual Wattage of the battery may be calculated by multiplying the Voltage 24V by the wattage, 10.5 Ah  in my case). Anyway, the Watt hours of the Luggie battery is specified under the battery and also on the side of the luggie battery box, which is good as the airlines may need to be convinced when you check in. Passengers must carry the battery as carry-on luggage. We found that some airline office staff may not read the Special Assistance ” Mobility Scooter” limit and instead get stuck on the lower maximum limit of 160 Wh allowed for other electrical equipment. We found the Luggie was just great onboard cruise ships, on tour buses (get prior agreement that the 25 Kg is OK – like a heavy suitcase- to be loaded by the driver into the cargo hold due to possible Workplace Health and Safety doubts) and to take on aircraft, provided you get prior clearance – best in an email as proof. We get lots of favourable comments especially on ships and also when the the ease of collapsing and stowing the Luggie scooter is seen.     Theo, QLD.

Great chair to travel the world, last year we did the world cruise with Princess, 104 days, Sydney to Sydney. The chair coped with everything we put it through, steep gangplanks, cobblestone streets, hills, grass, trains, buses, taxis and we never got anywhere near running out of battery power. My wife finds it very comfortable to sit in and easy to control.
