    Hi @donna1975

    I have found a number of Mobility Outlets on the internet that hire mobility scooters 

    Do you know what type of scooter that you require please ???

    Hello donna and welcome
    You don't say what if any benefits you claim. If you qualify for the mobility element of PIP this will give you some help toward what you need

    Have you looked for a second hand one? Have a look on the internet at places like gumtree in your area. There's often quite a few on there for sale. I got myself one a few months ago, it's light weight and fits in the boot of my car. These hire companies often charge a lot for hire of these, i looked into this and it wasn't something i could easily afford.
