Spain / Balearics and holiday oxygen supplies
Just thought I'd paste these as they may be of use to anyone going to Balearics - note they did not have to pay anything and it sounds like they got really efficient service. Van.
The first time I used oxygen over there was 2 years ago when I was provided with liquid oxygen(which I hate but can put up with for 2 weeks!) for ambulatory but they also gave me a static concentrator with enough tubing seeming to go half way round the hotel!!
Last year they had told me prior to arriving that they would be providing a portable with a trolley instead of the liquid stuff plus a static concentrator and a large tank in case of electricity cuts. They deliver to the hotel prior to my arrival and I find it in my room, and pick up after I have left. Like you I have a personal concentrator XPO2 and will take that too.
So far I have not had to pay anything but if you know which hotel you can ask in advance if there is any fee? I contacted the people copied below and they usually ask for your EHIC to be faxed or scanned to them and then require your prescription HOOF - type from your nurse/GP/physio or whoever you deal with. They like 3 weeks notice if possible. I don't think it matters who your own supplier is in the UK
I shall be emailing them myself as volcanic ash permitting I am off on 14th May - yes!!!
Hope this helps - do come back if you need anything else?
Good luck - Rita
oops! well thats the reply, I'll see if I can find where the question went - though the above is obviously the important info. Van
