Car Travel Tips

Air Travel

As of May 13, 2009, the Department of Transportation (DOT) recognized portable oxygen concentrators (POCs) as personal assistive devices and has mandated that air carriers allow approved POCs on board. All portable oxygen concentrators sold at SpinLife have been approved for air travel. 

That means that you do not have to worry about which airline you choose - they all MUST accept all FAA approved POCs. The ruling applies to all flights that have a starting point or ending point in the United States.  Most airlines have a form that must be filled out prior to departure and may require a copy of your prescription.  Please keep this statement with you for the duration of your trip.  For more information, visit the Department of Transportation (DOT) website.

Air Travel Tips

Traveling by train is convenient with few restrictions or requirements. America’s national rail system, Amtrak, provides the following guidelines:

For additional information on train travel with oxygen, you can contact Amtrak at 1-800-USA-RAIL (872-7245) or visit their website at

Bus Travel

Bus lines such as Greyhound permit travelers to carry and use supplemental oxygen devices like a POC. General guidelines suggest that oxygen therapy patients provide 48-hour advance notification before day of travel. According to Greyhound, advance notice is in accordance with federal guidelines and allows them to make the necessary arrangements to provide requested assistance. To arrange assistance for travel within the Greyhound system, call their Customers with Disabilities Travel Assistance Line at 1-800-752-4841.
