5 steps before traveling with medical oxygen

#1 Contact your doctor/GP to make sure it is safe for you to be traveling with your medical condition, You will not be able to bring your own oxygen on-board with you, so you will have to arrange your oxygen use for your flight.

#2 In advance call the airline and speak with the correct department to make your arrangement on board. The OxygenWorldwide team can help with this process if you provide your prescription with your enquiry.

#3 Make sure that you confirm that you meet the requirements of the carrier. Confirm with them that they can provide the flow of air you need and whether or not they will provide you with a nasal cannula or mask.

# 4 It is best 48 hours prior to departing on your travels it is best to confirm all of your arrangements by phone or email and make sure to go over all of the rules and regulations that the airlines give you. Typically, the airlines will direct you to a website with rules.

# 5 These same steps apply if you are traveling by train or cruise ship. If cruising, make sure to contact the company before purchasing tickets. Many cruise line operators do not allow oxygen tanks on board the ship.

For all you medical oxygen needs please contact Oxygen Worldwide today. Our team are open 24 hours, 7 days a week and also speak many languages.

Why is it so important to have a local contact person for oxygen delivery?

IMPORTANT: A local contact for you airbnb, hotel or villa reservation

OxygenWorldwide arranges the delivery of oxygen before you arrive and collects it again after you leave.

To achieve this we will always need a verifiable local contact person who can accept the materials on your behalf.

In the event that you do not have a local contact person because you made a booking through an online travel operator such as Airbnb or booking.com or alternative travel website and you have to let yourself in with a key or with a code, we can in only in some cases make a delivery on your arrival day or the day after.

The materials will then be collected before you leave.

Important: this last option is not available in all countries.

5 steps to easy travel with oxygen

travel

These steps have been updated from a popular blog published in 2012.

The 5 steps to successful travel

#1 First start with speaking with your doctor so you are “fit to fly”. You will not be able to carry your own medical oxygen containers on-board with you, so you will have to use oxygen provided by the airlines for the duration of the flight.

#2 Secondly we would suggest you call the airline directly advance of your flight. Ask to speak with special services or the medical department to check requirements.

#3 Next, confirm that you meet the requirements of the carrier and that they can provide the flow of air you need and whether or not they will provide you with a nasal cannula or mask.

# 4 Confirm all of your arrangements by phone at least 48 hours before your flight boards and make sure to go over all of the rules and regulations that the airlines give you. Typically, the airlines will direct you to a website with rules for those traveling with medical oxygen or they will send you a pamphlet in the post.

# 5 Then of course if you are not travelling via aeroplane then these same steps apply if you are traveling by train or cruise ship. Coordinate with your common carrier beforehand to avoid headaches. If cruising, make sure to contact the company prior to purchasing tickets, since many cruise lines will not allow oxygen tanks on board.

When flying why is medical oxygen such a challenge?

Preparing for a holiday, trip abroad or even for work can be relatively straight forward for most; passport, luggage and camera. But for those who require medical oxygen it is not as simple as taking your own extra item with you when boarding an aeroplane and moving across countries.

Do not fear as there are experts who can help and leave you to pack your things. It can become confusing to understand different policies, rules across airlines and then having medical oxygen provided at your accommodation is another service to research and book. It is unfortunately not cheap and therefore you need to make sure you have a reliable, safe and efficient service. You would not want your time away to be spoilt especially having help on hand as these machines can fail and need to be replaced quickly or fixed.

Speak to the team at @oxygenworldwide who can help plan, book and have your medical oxygen delivered to most countries across the world. The team also offer a 24/7 service so that if anything does go wrong they are on hand to put it right for you. With all the expert knowledge and relationships built with suppliers for over 20 years you can trust our team and have one less item to worry about.
