Then they either indicate where to put it or take it from you.

After one or two rides you will be in the swing of things.
Thats really helpful, thanks!

Do wheelchairs go in hold or can you take them on the plane to be able to get in it when you land straight away? Flying with BA btw

Another option we致e done twice is to buy a wheelchair from Walmart. Pre-order online & collect when you arrive. It can work out cheaper than renting depending on length of stay & you have the advantage of having the wheelchair for the return journey. We brought one back & left the other at MCO with an airport porter.

Wheelchairs go in the hold - after you致e boarded the plane.

The Red Cross were a lifesaver when my daughter first needed a wheelchair in the UK. However we did quickly buy one online that was more portable for less than 150 pounds. I would really suggest buying one and bringing it with you. You might really need it at the airport and having your own is far more convenient than waiting for special assistance.

I bought mine off eBay for 」70. Love it! It was an absolute god send last year. Brand new and from an eBay shop. Cast members will ask if you can transfer and then they will take their wheelchair when you池e ready to get on the ride.

Call BA special assistance to talk about the flight. Mine goes in the hold and I just get it with the cases because I take crutches on the plane. But they can arrange someone to meet you with an airport wheelchair off the plane
