I can assure you being in a wheelchair is not fun!
go kart... 1970's kids! or make your own creepy hospital scene
By the look of exemption list - nobody would pay VAT in any case - depression, anxiety, acid reflux etc. are on it!
Check out the alloy wheels on this baby hubba hubba. In before the the car crew arrive and start arguing whether this would be a better deal on lease 18 months or 24 months, second hand or new. That is even before they get onto the depreciation... oO

Bout time these were standard
Perfect for scamming. You'd make the £60 back in a day if you turn up at your local shopping center in this with a bucket in hand. Maybe cut a few holes in your clothes for good measure.
You can hire a wheelchair from British Red Cross centres across the UK - Here

From the website: Will it cost me anything to hire a wheelchair or other equipment?

Guy in our town has a wheelchair cos he has 1 leg. He begs for money and then his mate comes and pushes him to the offy n they buy a load of cheap booze. Free booze money every day.
'I want that one'

Handy for bypassing the queue at Alton Towers etc.



And the security queues at airport's as I found out when I took my wheelchair user mother on holiday!

Wheelchairs are 'self propelled' or 'transit' - it's how we say "big wheels" or "small wheels" - what what this has got to do with lawnmowers I've no idea...

They are fine on solid smooth surfaces but anywhere else and you will get stuck. You can get a decent second hand wheelchair with rubber tired wheels for this. Far better



Thanks! I've got a broken foot at the moment and actually considered this for a trip to Disneyland Paris in a few weeks rather than the hassle of hiring one, but I'll give it a miss and might consider renting/borrowing one instead.

They dont charge or even put pressure on a donation... as a few years ago we needed to borrow one for a week
Self propelled makes it read better than it is.
It's a manual wheelchair.
Now if it was a hover wheelchair I'm in.


Surely you should be able to get something like this on prescription on the NHS? Otherwise you're being charged a premium to live your life just because you're disabled, the opposite of how society should treat the disabled in my opinion.

I had to wait seven months from my doctor referring me to getting one. Apparently that is quite quick. I had to get one in the meantime else I'd never been able to leave the house
Well if you can't walk very far or at all, having a wheelchair is much more fun than not having one!
I have a small petrol engine attached to mine. I don't even have to pay road tax.

As the first person said, don't assume all wheelchairs are made equal - they're not so make sure you get one which suits your needs because the wrong one is worse than nothing-at-all.

They vary in size (esp width), weight and portability (important if you need to fold/lift it into a car) and wheel/tyre type (which can make some surfaces nightmarish) - and the comfort of the thing is super-important for you AND anyone pushing it.

If you're going to be pushed, make sure it's comfortable for the person who'll be doing that - some chairs have low handles which cripple taller people and vice-versa - some hired/used chairs can also be tatty/rattly/old and generally far from ideal.

If you're going to 'self propel', it's about 1000% harder than it looks and make sure you're comfortable doing it in the chair you're taking - if the chair doesn't suit you, you'll be lucky to make it 200m before you feel like you've done the marathon!

Yes but only when you haven't a leg to stand on.
Perfect for the X Men fancy dress I have planned.

I'm going as a disabled Wolverine.

Thanks for the advice - my husband is 6'5" so struggles with all sorts - buying a kids pushchair a few years ago was a nightmare, everything seems to be designed for short people, so I'd imagine wheelchairs aren't much better. I'd be hopeless at self-propelling, I was trying to wheel myself around the house on an office chair and couldn''t even manage that! To be honest I probably don't need one, I can walk a little now and should hopefully be back up on my feet fully before we go - I'll see how the foot recovers in the next couple of weeks and if it's still bad then I'll just send the hubby off in advance to pick up a rented chair from DLP I guess - that'll save hassle taking it with us on the plane, hire car etc. Typical bad timing, but at least it'll be sorted before proper Disney in Florida in the summer...I hope...!

I don't know about wheelchairs for registered disabled people, but we took my mum a few years ago (not disabled, just elderly and unable to walk too far) and had to pay, and I emailed them a few days ago to ask what the situation was and got this response:
The price is 15 euros per day in both parks, a deposit of 50 euros is asked for the rental.
deleted57959

Yeah sorry, Its if you have an annual pass its free.



I do, and I mentioned that when I emailed them, but they never said anything about that. I'll chase it up again and see - thanks!

Don't get too PC - but to me a wheelchair is a wheelchair why add self propelled - if it's electric add electric
