From coast to coast we have thousands of happy Travel Buggy customers, each with their own unique story. We are so proud to have helped our loyal customers regain their independence. See some of these stories here.
Had our Buggy's since 2018 and traveled a lot!
My husband has been on crutches for 11 years, because he can't bear weight on his left foot, he now has shoulder problems because of being on the crutches so long. I have back and leg problems and can't walk or stand long. So our Travel Buggy's are our freedom!
Love them truly!

Overall this chair has been a life changer
I have had people stop me to ask where I got my chair because the maneuverability it unlike anything they have ever seen. I can turn around easily with very little space and take turns very easily.
The batteries lasted a couple of days even though I was trolling the boardwalk and it is so easy to charge that it really would not have mattered.
Overall this chair has been a life changer and the customer service has been wonderful. I couldn’t ask for more.

Take Me Out to the Ball Game!
I can now go on extended shopping trips or long excursions with my wife or grandkids and keep up with them. (If I put the Dash in third gear they have to keep up with me.) I recently used it to go to a Blue Jays game and it worked out great and the accessible seating area they have is awesome!!
We are planning our first trip by air shortly and I'm anxious to see how it works out.
Thanks Travel Buggy for giving me the freedom to get out and about again!
Great for walks
Here is a picture of my sister and I enjoying the waterfront trail.
Love my new DASH!
I hope you and your company continue to prosper.

We liked it so much we bought a second one!
They are very well built and should last a long time with proper use and care. They allow us to explore the areas of camp grounds we visit and the river walk in our home town. The Buggy is easy to fold and the travel bag makes it so easy to load in the back of our mini-van.
I would recommend the unit to everyone.
We both love it.
I find it very comfortable
As a plus size person I find it very comfortable (especially with my additional cushion) and roomy. I am slowly mastering the art of joystick drivng...; hahaha it has been a bit of a challenge, yet I am improving daily. Today I had to navigate a construction zone with temporary pedestrian walkways that are far from smooth, and there was a huge incline in one area. But my City handled it all with flying colours.
I am loving that some of my independence is being restored thanks to my Travel Buggy. She is definitely my new travel buddy!!
This thing is built like a tank!
The Travel Buggy is a delight to drive and makes life so much easier. I've spoken with a couple of owners of Mobility Scooters who told me they wish they had known about the Travel Buggy before they invested in their present unit. I’ve done six runs with my Buggy, so far, and am amazed at how little the battery has gone down.
If you are thinking of buying a chair, I highly recommend this Company
I live in an Apartment Building, so last night I was out in the hall practicing backing up…It’s one thing to go forward but backing up takes a little skill . It’s well made machine and so far has worked flawlessly.
If you are thinking of buying a chair, I highly recommend this Company…The products they sell are well made and should last for a long time….I am hitting 80 years old in sept and I figure I have at least another 10 years before they take away my chair…Look at the Queens' husband…he was still driving and he was in his high nineties!
I am able to get together with some coffee buddies downtown
We traveled thanks to the light weight of the chair. It was very easy to load and unload, sometimes my wife could do it by herself. We had taken a 5 day trip and never had to charge the batteries, and then another trip that was a 4 day again no charge this was on heavy grass and gravel . Both trips I was asked all about the chair, spent time explaining what I could about it. I did demonstrate how easy it was to fold and set-up. They were all very impressed. A number of them indicated that they would be chatting with their parents and or their spouse.
It's the best thing that I ever bought my man!
Took it on a cruise to Alaska!
Outings I had to make for appointments really showed the value of my Travel Buggy
The independence and freedom the Travel Buggy has brought back to our lives is fantastic

Thank you so MUCH!
This picture was taken on a deck at Sarnia bay marina in Centennial Park which surrounds the bay . Some Apartments and the church steeple in the background. The park is a very nice place to go with the Travel Buggy.
The Travel Buggy has opened up my world and has given me my independence back!
Freedom and ease.

I would be lost without it
Riding the buggy with Grampa was so fun for a 3 year old!
The freedom my wife has to go out by herself that she hasn't been able to do for 12 years!!!
We took it on our trip to Hawaii!
Went to the safari wildlife animal park in San Diego and it worked perfectly!
So simple to fold and unfold
She finally has freedom and independence!
Boardwalk in Barbados!
Did the hills at Niagara Falls with no problem
The buggy proved to be sturdy and comfortable not to mention – kind of cool.
We are back from vacation and the travel buggy performed well. I used the buggy through Toronto airport and right up to the plane door. Airport personnel were impressed by how easily it folded and the travel bag made it easy to handle. They wanded/swabbed the buggy going through security and I had to remove the batteries and take them into the cabin with me as carry-on.
The best thing was that I could travel independently and farther than would have been possible in a manual wheelchair. We even did 4 Km along a flat, well maintained section of the Trans Canada Trail. I haven’t been on a “hike” for years.
My son (6’2″) did the lifting and could roll it (empty) up some unexpected stairs at our Inn which would have been impossible with a full-sized electric chair. On a rainy day I used a poncho to cover me, the chair and controller – no problem. All in all it was a great success. The buggy proved to be sturdy and comfortable not to mention – kind of cool.
Thanks for all your help with all this.
Another happy customer!!
The Travel Buggy has had an invaluable impact on our lives.

No more hesitation to joining my family members on outings
I would recommend The Travel Buggy to anyone!!

We purchased this electric wheelchair for our grandson Joey. Here are some more photos Joey on the travel buggy.
He tells me that the batteries are holding its charge very nicely , he has taken it out several times and he has not had to recharge the batteries, he thinks it’s great.
However he only has one complaint, the horn could be a little louder LOL!!
The Travel Buggy is incredible!
I have the City model and it’s AWESOME!! It truly is as lightweight, easily-compactible, and versatile as the website says! I’ve taken it all over Edmonton, and even took it onto hiking trails (some paved, some not) in Jasper! And I plan on taking it to many more places! From tiny elevators to big open spaces, you can fit anywhere!
The Travel Buggy is incredible! Fantastic turning radius, more narrow than a manual wheelchair, and is very comfy!
I haven’t yet used it in the snow (we bought ours in April), but I have gotten caught in a bit of a rain with it! I was sure to cover the console and used an umbrella, and it did just fine!
I have to admit, I totally love this chair!! I am always looking for more places to take it, more adventures to experience with it. And after having it for three months now and taking it on so many different terrains and situations, I can 100% recommend it to anyone! Best price, best quality, and Canadian company!
I also wanted to mention that their customer service is absolutely stellar! The day I wanted to buy mine, the owner moved heaven and earth to get me into my chair as soon as possible. He was absolutely wonderful and a pleasure to work with!
Please give this chair a try! You’ll be so glad you did! I honestly don’t have a single complaint!
Perfect for the Comic Expo.
I suffer from what can only be described as nerve damage in my right foot which causes considerable pain especially when walking for almost any period. For long excursions such as the Comic Expo, a regular wheelchair just couldn’t cut it with having to wheel myself or having someone else wheel me around. Just didn’t seem right. So I did
an internet search and it led me to Travel Buggy. Found out it was local and amazingly affordable compared to many other options. That and the chair power was amazing as the batteries last around 8 hours of use. I was able to once again go to a number of functions in minimal discomfort as opposed to not going due to extreme pain. The chair is light enough for me to manage and zips around very nicely. I believe anyone looking for a power chair won’t find a better one.
The Travel Buggy is an AWESOME product!
If it can survive a camping trip with some of my grandchildren, it can handle every day life. They challenged me to races with their bikes, on gravel, grass and uneven ground and the buggy performed splendidly (once I got the hang of the joy stick). On my return I spoke to one of my good friends about the power chair and I just got an email saying they had ordered one.
I have found that the City wheelchair has really helped me get out.
I have found that the City wheelchair has really helped me get out. It will go almost anywhere I have wanted to go. It handles steep hills in town and allowed me to go to the zoo. I have taken it on the train several times to Edmonton and Winnipeg. Thanks so much. Here is me at the zoo.
Thanks again for your help!
I’ve been tried without success to have the City of Toronto and the University I attend to regularly clear the snow on the paths I need to use to get to the Law School. With my manual chair, I couldn’t get to class independently on a regular basis; I had to rely on friends to push me through the snow. This chair has helped a lot— while there are still some days that the City/University has not cleared the snow at ALL, most days I can get through the amount of snow, where I wasn’t able to with my manual chair. Having the Travel Buggy means I can be a lot more independent, and takes away some of the stress of planning out my days to figure out who can help get me to class!
The chair has allowed me freedom and independence.
I wanted the chair to give me mobility to go shopping, using the chair from my car, and taking the chair with me when flying. The chair meets all of these requirements and has allowed me freedom and independence.
For my Wife
I can’t say enough about this chair!
I just would like to keep you two up to speed on our Travel Buggy. We went to Palm Springs I used it every day we were there it is really a Gods sent it works so well no problems what so ever I had strong people with us that could put it in & out of the van. Veteran Affairs Canada has paid for it plus will pay for a lift so all I have to do is push a button no lifting will be required. I have had a lot of people ask me about it and recommend it to all.
My grandson also wanted to mention for the review that the chair worked great from the family’s view. Very easy and no worries about possible falls. Flying with the chair made life so easy, I was able to drive it right to the gate and when we landed in Calgary, I drove from the door of the plane right to the car.
He's just "gone" all the time - off to Tim Horton's, grocery store and more!
Ann and Denis
I was looking for something that was durable, could fit in my wife's car trunk, and lots of had accessories
Easier to use than my mobility scooter!
The Travel Buggy allows my husband much more freedom and ease of use for him is wonderful.
Like rolling on a cloud!
Inside it works great!
We use it every weekend on trips to our cabin
NEW BEST FRIEND
Acquired my new best friend in November 2017. We have been all over Europe, Scotland, Portugal, Spain Majorca. This summer through the Rockies Banff, Jasper even up the ski lifts in Banff and Jasper one quick flip and on to the gondola and up to the top drive around the top oh the freedom.
The wheelchair was acceptable on all types of transportation trains in Majorca to buses in all the Countries. Cruise ships no problem do not need special cabins as the wheelchair fits in no problem fold and charges. Even on small island ferries.
Airports takes a little longer to negotiate at the desk, questions what type of batteries are in the wheelchair. Get the carrying bag for the batteries then you can drive right up to the entrance of the plane take the batteries out and store with your hand luggage over head your wheel chair will be at the door when you disembarked easy.
Wheelchair is in the van where do we go next? Freedom.
Thank you for your attention to all the little details, and your excellent service.
Our Travel Buggy (City Model) has changed our Winter and I’m sure it will change our Spring, Summer and Fall.
Denis, my husband and a stroke survivor, was “trapped” in our home during the Winter as navigating snow, snow banks and ruts made it impossible to go anywhere with his manual chair; and that was just to get to the car! In parallel to purchasing the Travel Buggy we had an outdoor lift installed. Together, Denis can now get himself to the car while I lock up the house.
The fact that I, a 5’ nothing female of 55+ years, can easily get the Travel Buggy into the back of our car means that the we can go anywhere we want to go; and when we get there Denis is independent to go wherever he wants, as quickly as he wants. It’s liberating for both of us!
I spent a lot of time reviewing and assessing the merits of portable electric wheelchairs. There are a number of similarities; but for me, buying Canadian and supporting Canadian business is a key factor in all my purchases. In addition, the Travel Buggy (City Model) came out on top of my research based on:
- Dimensions in relation to narrow doorways and the trunk size of our car
- Travel distance on a single charge
- Battery type
- Weight (remember I’m 5’ nothing and 55+ years old)
- Solid tires (no more rubber tubes, patching glue and grease!)
Since receiving our Travel Buggy (City Model) I’ve discovered even more features and benefits:
- Folding the wheelchair is simple – just unlatch a single leaver and with a little push on the backrest, the chair folds up
- The charger is small, like a laptop battery charger, it fits in the pouch attached under the seat – it goes everywhere with the chair and can be plugged into any regular outlet (though we have never had to recharge it when out)
- The backrest and seat support can be tensioned for Denis’ comfort
- The armrests can be raised out of the way when Denis transfers to and from the chair.
Denis doesn’t know it yet, but come the warm weather, I’m putting his newfound freedom to “work” – odd jobs in the yard, and taking the garbage out for the first time in 10 years! I know that come the warm weather, Denis will be off, traveling, and exploring the neighborhood. I think I’ll need to buy him a watch so he can tell when it’s time to come home!
In all seriousness, the outcome of Denis’s stroke affected both of us; adding a complexity to our freedom. That complexity is now easily manageable because of The Travel Buggy. Thank you!
Certainly lives up to my expectations.
Thought you might want to know that the Buggy arrived yesterday (a day early!) and I am very impressed! Easy to unpack, open up and get ready to ride. It is also a nice looking chair which certainly lives up to my expectations. I took a couple of test runs yesterday evening and will probably give it a proper road test today and take my dog for a walk for the first time for a long time (don’t worry he gets lots of walks, just not with me lol).
Really impressed with the speed (certainly faster than expected) and responsiveness of the joystick – it also appears to be quite comfortable to ride and has plenty of butt room! Please accept my thanks for making the acquisition of something I hoped I would never need, at least a pleasant experience. Your customer service was outstanding and something we don’t see too often these days! Please never change that aspect of your company because it is something that sets you apart from other companies – now that I have my Buggy I can tell you that a US company was also on my short list and offered a similar chair at a ‘better’ price. I asked them some of the same questions I asked you (e.g. test drives and return policy) and their arrogant unprofessional responses, coupled with their terrible return policy, was what eliminated them from my consideration. So keep it up!
I have found it to be great; much more comfortable than I had expected.
We purchased the City Travel Buggy with 12-inch wheels about 9 months ago and we love it! We bought it for our 15-year old daughter who has a fatiguing condition and needs a wheelchair for walking long distances or in situations where there is a lot of standing. I have ME/CFS too and have borrowed her Travel Buggy quite a bit too.
We have used it in several Canadian cities outside on sidewalks, driveways, etc. as well as inside many buildings. We have used it at a music festival with grassy fields, sandy areas, and lots of hoses and electrical cords to go over. We live on a small island so the Travel Buggy has also been taken on a small boat and driven on hard packed gravel and grass with no problems. The travel buggy is very easy to use, and has a great turning radius which makes it easy to use in smaller spaces such as stores, elevators, and buses. We have used it all day and it has not run out of power.
In deciding on the Travel Buggy, my daughter trialed it and a couple other electric wheelchairs with her Occupational Therapist. They concluded that the benefits of this chair far outweigh the slight difference in comfort levels especially considering my daughter can get up out of it once every hour or two. I have found it to be great; much more comfortable than I had expected.
The thing that first drew our attention to the Travel Buggy is the fact that is folds like a stroller and is therefore much easier to travel with than my travel mobility scooter (which does come apart but is very heavy and takes up a lot of space in a vehicle). The Travel Buggy is also a little lighter than the pieces of my travel mobility scooter so a little easier to lift for our support people. It is quite easy for an adult or youth of fair health to lift the folded unit into the back of a vehicle (we recommend using a small strap around the back rest and footrest to maintain the folded position). We have now taken the Travel Buggy in all kinds of vehicles: our van, wheelchair taxi, regular taxi, car, city bus, seaplane, regular plane, BC ferry, and of course our boat. It is so great to know that we can take it without having to arrange special wheelchair accessible transportation. We are currently planning a trip to Mexico and are looking forward to using it there.
We have had success with Canadian airlines allowing use of the chair right up to the door of the plane, and the chair has held up great to that kind of stowage.
For those considering the Travel Buggy vs a mobility scooter, I can say that I have used a 4 wheeled mobility scooter for a number of years and quite liked it until I had the chance to use the Travel Buggy. I prefer the Travel Buggy primarily because it is so much easier to navigate space with its smaller turning radius, plus it is possible to fold it and carry it in almost any vehicle. All this without losing the ability to travel over different kinds of terrain and having a good long range.
Finally, we have to commend The Travel Buggy for outstanding customer service. Our purchase was complicated by insurance requirements (including evaluation by an occupational therapist), and the company supported us through all of it.
Thanks so much!
I can’t tell you how thrilled I am!
I’ve received my travel buggy, city lite, and I can’t tell you how thrilled I am! I’ve been living with myalgic encephalomyilitis for the last three years, and I’m basically home bound. Well, not anymore! For the last three days, I’ve been out every day. Not for long, of course, but out, and all by myself.
Thanks a lot.
I use my travel buggy to get to and from dialysis
I was able to zip down small some streets, go on a walking tour and enjoy visiting sites I never thought I would be able to.
This wheelchair has been so incredibly wonderful!
This wheelchair has been so incredibly wonderful! All the claims that you give about it, i.e. the folding ability, the ease of operation etc. are all true! I love it! It is a delight to ride in and feel independent once again. Thank you for the adjustments, your patience, and the amazing product that you delivered.
Thanks again for giving me my mobility back.
Clyde & Judy H.
5 Stars to your service and 5 Stars to the Travel Buggy.
We received our unit in mid December 2017. It was ordered for my 92-year-old father. He can still walk, but at a snails pace to say the least.
The Travel Buggy arrived as promised and was very well packaged for its protection. After taking it out of the box, it took just minutes to set up and it was ready to be charged. The following day, I loaded it into the car and took it to my father. As advertised, it folds up easy and is easy to load into the car. After showing him how to operate the controls, he practiced in his hallway at his complex for 10 to 15 minutes – that was all the practice he needed.
He doesn’t use it all the time but he loves it and so do we. Now, taking him to the mall or Walmart is a joy. He stays right with the traffic flow and motors around people just like he walking in the old days. He is looking forward to spring so he can go outside more. Now we will be able to take him to the parks and the lake with ease. I’m not sure his Grand Kids or Great Grand Kids will be able to keep up with him!
The Travel Buggy’s mobility makes him feel like he is part of the group again. We have a trip planned to the USA this summer with him. He will be able to get around with ease. This will make life a lot easier for all of us.
Thank you again.
Thank you for a great product!
I purchased the Travel Buggy City Model and am very happy with it. It is easy to use and my hubby doesn’t have any trouble getting it in and out of the car. It is very sturdy and I am looking forward to traveling with it. It is also an attractive machine. We have had enquiries about where we got it, as there seems to be many others that need an alternative to the big machines that require a ramp. My only complaint is that the seat could have a better quality memory foam as I need to spend quite a few hours sitting in it. Perhaps a key lock would be good as if you were to leave it for any reason, it could be easily stolen.
I used The Travel Buggy in my recent flight and trip to Toronto and it worked very well.
Hi, I used The Travel Buggy in my recent flight and trip to Toronto and it worked very well. Some of the accessories such as the cane holder and cup holder did not work that well, largely because of the curved bars on the hand rests. Other wise it worked great. I had several people looking at it and taking pictures, so you may get some additional business from my trip.
You will not be disappointed with this wheelchair.
I have degenerative disease that is slowly crippling my body and walking for even periods of time causes me severe pain in my feet. I researched all the different travel portable electric wheelchairs and decided on the travel buggy because of the size of the back tires and front, portability, and many other options. I bought the city model. The owner was super friendly and helpful and to be able to speak to someone that wasn’t a main call center out of country like some of the other models I inquired about, was a huge bonus. I needed it for my cruise and it arrived on time as promised, and I am beyond happy with it. It is absolutely is a well made product, it has great speed, turning radius was phenomenal and easily maneuverable in tight spots, the arm rests lift up and I was able to pull up to the table for dinner each night, It went up and down ramps with no hesitation, I was able to go over curbs, and bumpy roads, with no problems. It cruises at a nice speed, I was able to ditch my husband a few times. 😉 The batteries held a charge for almost 3 full days of me steady using it. It charges fast. The best part is I was able to drive it right to the plane. It folded easy for them to take down the ramp and store upright. Lastly, it fits in the trunk of my 2010 Honda Civic Sedan easily.
I received all kinds of compliments on it. Best purchase.
Thanks to the Travel Buggy people!
I saw my neighbour down the hall from me driving a travel buggy and I thought it would be good for me too. I called and asked for a wider version than my neighbours. I spoke to the owner Paul and he told me no problem and had it made for me. Since it was custom I had to wait about four weeks, but that was ok. I really like it. It’s cold here now so haven’t got it outside much but works nice inside up and down the halls and over the door frames. I use it as a walking assistant and when I get tired I can sit in it and use it as a power chair. One thing I would like to see is a handle bar at the back that would help me walk behind it more easily and give me some space from the back. Other than that, its great.
I really feel like I have so much more independence now with it.
I just want to let u know that I received my chair about a month ago in Ontario. I absolutely LOVE it!! I wish I had it long ago. It is so much better than driving a scooter and I love how easy it is to turn. My main reason for getting it was for my friends to be able to take me out. I haven’t tried yet to see if they can lift it. But with 2 people I am sure they will be able to. It took a bit of practice for me not to run into racks at the store….lol… It is just so wonderful and I love the colour of it. Thank you so much for making something so wonderful !
It made the trip great for both of us
I absolutely love this travel buggy.
I’m so pleased that I made the leap to purchase. I’m zipping around quite nicely and it easily goes inside any car to transport and make mobility a non issue for me. I can’t tell you how happy I am about this.
My brother is loving his new modern power chair!
We couldn’t be happier with your excellent product. It is a super smooth ride and so very easy to use. Whenever we go out, the chair gets a lot of looks and anyone who asks, we are pleased to direct them to your Canadian website. No duties to pay and prompt delivery. Your company is committed to excellent customer satisfaction from beginning to end. Thank you for your stellar service.
With great appreciation,
I can manage my life so much better!
Love, love, love my travel buggy.
It’s given me the freedom to do things and go places that I haven’t been able to do for a very long time. I encourage anyone who’s thinking of buying one to contact Paul. He’ll answer any questions you have and make sure you’re completely satisfied before purchasing your own chair. It’s also a big plus that you are supporting a Canadian owned company.
With many thanks,
The chair itself worked extremely well for me during the trip.
We used it for the first time traveling to the US with Delta, everything went well with the airline and the chair itself worked extremely well for me during the trip. I should have had some information on the buggy though because I was asked about it a lot. I made up a sticker to go on the back of my business cards with your information on it for people. It was quite the conversation starter.
My wife and Daughter also saw them at the Calgary Zoo as rentals yesterday, what a great idea.
Mine is getting some good use.
John & Dianne M.
What a marvel!
I took my scooter out for a test drive at the Ex, and I couldn’t believe how long I was able to stay there, because 1) I was having fun!, and 2) I didn’t hurt anywhere. I would (and will) recommend the scooter to anyone. It’s amazing! My roomie has been contemplating one too.
Thanks so much for all your help. I’m going to be able to a lot more fun now!
It improves all of our lives.
Battery life is amazing!
