Travelling with your equipment

    CPAP devices and accessories are portable, so you can take them with you when you are away from home.

    Traveling by plane, caravan or motorhome

    If you travel by plane, you can have the equipment checked by the hand baggage scanner at security and carry it on the plane as hand luggage. CPAP devices are not resistant to the temperature and pressure differences in the luggage compartment.

    In a camper or caravan it is likely that you will need a different connection for your CPAP equipment. For all CPAP devices, convertors with a 12/24-volt connection are available, which are available through our webshop.
