Traveling with a Scooter

The best way to travel with your Triad Scooter is what works for you. In this section, we will post our experiences, but we also would like to hear from you. If you give us permission, we will post your experiences as well. Simply fill out the form. Or, if you have a question that you would like answered, we will try to find someone who can answer it.

On many travel forums, people are jaded. They say, talk to the airline, etc. It is important to talk to the airlines, but it is also important to read about first-hand experiences, especially if you are a newbie traveling with a mobility issue.

For example, we would love to try an airline or a cruise with our scooter. As of September 2017, we haven't, and we want to read about others who have already blazed the trail.


If you do submit a story, there are some things to think about.

  • What Triad scooter did you have?
  • Any clearance issues or pictures?
  • If applicable, where did you store the scooter?

Gatlinburg Mobility Tips

Some general mobility observations and resources for Gatlinburg.

I tried to find everything I could before we went to Gatlinburg about what was and what wasn't scooter friendly.

My husband can walk short distances, and he did use his walking stick in restaurants, although he could have driven to the table in many of them as well.

Here is a quick list of resources. I'm going to be posting more in-depth posts on the area as well:
