- Some airlines require documentation from a doctor stating the equipment is required by the user and must be kept with the user during travel.

- What should I know about going on a cruise with my CPAP equipment?
Cruise lines recommend that CPAP and BiPAP equipment be hand carried onto the ship rather than storing it in checked luggage, which may not be delivered until after bedtime. Generally there is a small bedside table available. However, electrical outlets may not be available near the bed. Take an electrical extension cord along to ensure you can plug in the machine. Some cruise lines may provide distilled water for use in the humidifier. Call your cruise company for their specific policies and amenities regarding CPAP equipment.
