    luggage a lot of agents like to tag the checked luggage of a person with a disability with priority stickers so that they are the first bags off of the airplane and therefore the first bags on the baggage carousel However people who need wheelchair assistance are always the last ones off of the airplane and I have had it many times where most of the passengers on my flight have already picked up their luggage and left by the time I arrive in the baggage claim Personally I don t like the idea of my bags going round and round on the baggage carousel when I m not there There doesn t seem to be much point So if you see the checks in agents putting priority stickers on your checked baggage you might just want to tell them that it s not necessary unless of course you would like it 8 Immediately after you transfer out of your wheelchair and before they take it away remove any loose or vulnerable parts from your wheelchair if possible and take them onto the plane with you Baggage handlers are notorious for manhandling wheelchairs They love to take apart anything they can so it is important to remove loose parts of your chair and just store them with you on the plane This includes things like a joystick and footrests You don t have to put them in your carry on luggage just put them in the overhead compartment above your seat If you do not remove them there is a chance that they will get damaged or even go missing by the time you get your wheelchair back at your destination see Australia 2000 9 Secure any loose or moveable parts on your wheelchair that you can not take on the plane with you before they take your chair away to the cargo hold For instance if you are checking an electric wheelchair that has a swing away joystick or some other moveable part tape it together so that it is secure and unable to swing out or move Moveable parts are likely to end up getting damaged in the cargo hold 10 For those in electric wheelchairs take the batteries out of your wheelchair yourself at the airport The minute I get transferred out of my wheelchair at the airport I immediately have my attendant take the batteries out of my chair and just sit them on my seat Then the baggage handlers wheel my chair away with the batteries on my seat If your batteries do not come out of your chair make sure you disconnect them and show the airport handler who will be taking your chair away that they are disconnected It is much safer to disconnect the batteries yourself rather than let the baggage guys have to figure it out by themselves later You never know what kind of damage they will create just figuring out how to disconnect the battery They may disconnect every single wire on your chair to ensure that the chair will not be a danger in flight I have heard many stories from people who have spent 2 or 3 hours at the destination airport trying to re connect all of the wires that the baggage handlers needlessly disconnected Baggage handlers are EXTREMELY paranoid about the storage of batteries during the flight especially wet cell acid batteries As a basic rule it s just better to take as much of your chair apart as possible on your own The less work the baggage handlers have to do the less chance of them damaging your chair So take the batteries out yourself explain to them exactly what kind of batteries they are and how they should handle them and then you should be fine In flight 11 Using the bathroom No matter what the airlines tell you bathrooms on board airplanes are not very accessible at all especially for someone who might require assistance from a caregiver They are incredibly small and can really only fit one person The best advice I always give is to a watch what you eat and drink that day so that you do not have to use the bathroom during the flight or if you think it is inevitable that you will need to use the bathroom at some point b try at the very least to use the bathroom inside the airport just before you board the plane so that you hopefully won t need to use the one on the plane during the flight The bathroom in the airport will be bigger and far easier to use than the one on the plane If you do have to use the bathroom on the plane during the flight it should not be a problem for most airlines The general practice is that the flight attendant will bring the onboard wheelchair to your seat and help you wheel to the bathroom although if you require help inside the bathroom and transferring into the chair you must provide your own caregiver to assist you for that If you think you may have to use the bathroom on the plane during the flight make sure to follow up with the airline at the time of reservation and again a few days prior to the flight to clarify their policy and ensure that they will have an onboard wheelchair on your flight 12 Dysreflexia Just a note for quadriplegics who may have the same experience I had The first 3 or 4 times I flew I always had a slight case of dysreflexia after 3 or 4 hours of flying It was nothing major just some sweating and a tingling sensation in the face I knew it was obviously due to sitting in the plane seat and having a different seating posture than what I was used to I wasn t really sure what I could do to prevent it though I used to just have my attendant

    with more mobility than myself Many were able to transfer out of their wheelchairs on their own or even walk a few steps so they had no problem transferring into a car seat or a bathtub or even folding up their wheelchair and climbing aboard a bus As an electric wheelchair user with C4 quadriplegia it was clear to me that their definition of accessibility was a lot different than mine So I decided to start up my own accessible travel web site complete with travel reviews pictures and travel tips that I had picked up in my own travels I thought my experiences might be useful for all travelers those with minor mobility challenges and those who require a higher standard of accessibility A few months later World On Wheelz was born It wasn t long after I graduated from university that I realized I wanted to be in the travel industry full time So I went back to school for Travel Consulting and then began work at FREDERICK TRAVEL in 2004 Given the obvious need for an agency that specializes in accessible travel and that knows what disabled travelers require we immediately established an accessible travel department operating under the name World On Wheelz and we have been making accessible travel arrangements for disabled travelers ever since Planning an accessible vacation can be a daunting task for many in the disabled community Would be travelers are often frustrated by not knowing where to look or how to go about planning an accessible trip Fortunately they need look no further than World On Wheelz We are here to help disabled travelers discover the world and fulfill their dreams We have established working relationships with tour operators and suppliers all over the world who specialize exclusively in accessible travel arrangements
