Carnival Cruise Line, "The World’s Most Popular Cruise Line®", has selected Scootaround to be its preferred provider of scooter, wheelchair and other mobility equipment rentals.
“At Carnival, taking good care of our guests with disabilities is important to us. Having a relationship with a preferred vendor who provides a wide array of mobility and medical equipment rental services, and can consistently deliver high levels of service to our customers, helps us to exceed our guests’ expectations,” said Vicky Rey, VP of Guest Care and Communications at Carnival Cruise Line.
As a preferred vendor, Scootaround is the only provider allowed to deliver rented equipment onboard Carnival ships in North America. Through Scootaround, Carnival guests can rent scooters, wheelchairs, powerchairs, rollators, oxygen, hospital beds, Hoyer lifts and other medical equipment. Guests will still have the option to bring their own equipment onboard as well.
The cruise industry as a whole has seen a steady increase in the number of passengers requiring mobility assistance, a trend that is likely to continue as the nation’s 65+ population grows. The addition of new ships to Carnival’s fleet – including the Carnival Panorama in 2019 – will further heighten this demand.
"Over 40% of people with reduced mobility never travel, often because they are unaware they can rent equipment at their destination," said Kerry Renaud, CEO / Managing Director of Scootaround. "Our relationship with Carnival helps bring this service to the attention of a greater number of cruise passengers. We're very excited to work with them to deliver the high-quality products and services their guests require.”
Scootaround is the nation’s leading provider of mobility equipment solutions, offering rental and repair services for scooters, wheelchairs, powerchairs, and rollators at over 2,500 locations across North America.
