Holidays and travel

16) Oxygen and public transport

  • Portable oxygen is generally not a problem on public transport. However, checking ahead will give you peace of mind.
  • The transport company is unlikely to guarantee a power supply so if you use a concentrator make sure you have enough battery life.


If you are travelling outside Scotland, to somewhere else in the UK, you will need to contact Health Facilities Scotland to arrange your Oxygen supply.

If you are travelling outside the UK you will need to arrange your own oxygen supply.

For more information please see pur section on Oxygen.
