To avoid this unpleasant experience, I would suggest the following options:
- Leave your personal equipment at home and rent equipment upon arrival in Las Vegas. Companies like Active Mobility, LLC, carry a wide variety of wheelchairs, walkers, scooters, and power chairs. This equipment can be delivered to your hotel before arrival and picked up again after your departure.
- If you are traveling with highly specialized or customized equipment, please ensure that there is a vendor in Las Vegas who is able to work on your equipment. Also, make sure that your personal vendor is aware of your plans and that they will be able to supply emergency parts at short notice.
- If you prefer to bring your equipment, ensure that the airline you are flying on has a relationship with a company in Las Vegas that can do repairs at short notice and most importantly, that can provide loaner equipment in the meantime. Loaners should be available for delivery 24/7. At present Active Mobility, LLC is the exclusive provider to 99% of the leading airlines flying into Las Vegas.
By following these three steps you should significantly reduce your frustration and irritation. No one wants to start a vacation on a sour note.
