I voted "other," because I rarely travel but when I do, I don't have any trouble. The last time I went up home a couple years ago, )The kansas City, Missouri/Kansas area,) I traveled by car and my family was very accomodating to my needs.

Strange options, zonk. Huhsign When I travel, I always take a CPAP with me. Prior to retiring, I'd travel more than 20 times in any given year; since retiring, we now travel 3 to 4 times in a year.

RE: How often do you travel with your CPAP?
I am currently traveling on a "winter vacation" for two months. No problems flying with my CPAP even though each airport seems to have a "unique policy" about unpacking (or not unpacking) my CPAP. I did get a "medical device" tag. I never check a suitcase and have had no problem with a carry on suitcase, a large purse and my CPAP bag. My problem seems to be getting distilled water when I "land" someplace for a few days. So I sometimes use bottled drinking water.
