Top 4 Portable Mobility Scooters for 2022

With a lightweight design and features that allow them to fold up or come apart for transport, portable mobility scooters are great for both travel and daily use.

Portable mobility scooters are primarily designed for use inside on even terrain, such as the home, hotels, and shopping centres. They can also be used for shorter trips outside on smooth, flat surfaces such as pavements and open air tourist attractions.

The smaller battery size means these portable mobility scooters aren’t going to go the distance compared to larger models. But you can still get a surprising amount of distance from a single charge – up to 20km among our best portable mobility scooters reviewed below.

Manoeuvrability is also a key feature of portable mobility scooters. A smaller turning circle and easy handling makes it ideal for use at home, in cafes or anywhere that presents a tight space.

All of the portable mobility scooters in our list can be folded down or taken apart for transport and storage. Small enough to fit in the boot of a car or check in luggage when flying, and easy to store when not in use.
