It’s no secret that a wheelchair makes packing a bit more complicated, but that doesn’t need to stop you from travelling.

To inspire more wheelchair users to travel and to improve everyone’s packing, Mighty Goods have talked with 8 experienced wheelchair travellers and asked them to share their best advice.

Read on and learn from their best tips and tricks (all 8 have lots of travel experience, so they know what they are talking about!).

I am originally from South Florida and I currently live in Orlando. I’m a Service disabled Air Force veteran, and I’ve had multiple sclerosis for over 12 years. I’ve been using a wheelchair full-time for approximately four years. I work full-time as a consultant, accessible travel writer, and accessible travel agent. My favorite travel destinations are Europe and Singapore.

What top 3 things do you bring besides the common stuff all travelers bring?

As a wheelchair/scooter user, I’m sitting down all the time. The scooter I travel with isn’t as comfortable as my chair at home, so I have to bring a memory foam cushion so I’m comfortable while I’m out and about. As a travel blogger, I also bring a variety of tools to capture moments, including a drone and gimbal for my phone. I always laugh when I see the variety of neck pillows that people bring for long-haul flights, as most of them are incredibly useless and uncomfortable.
