Default Medical Oxygen

I need medical oxygen --e-tank-- to be picked up in Anchorage, Alaska, and dropped off in Vancouver, BC. Know anyone who can supply? (I own my own equipment, but been told airlines will not permit it onboard.)

Default Re: Medical Oxygen

Got this info from this site:


"Most cruise lines will accept passengers who require oxygen.  Advance notice of at least 4 to six weeks is required.  A doctors letter is required and you must arrange and provide you own equipment and oxygen.  To get specific requirements of the cruise line of your choice, contact their reservation number and ask for special services or medical department."

Resources for Arranging Oxygen for When Traveling

"A good place to start is with your local supplier. National chains usually can assist by contacting their other offices to make the arrangements. Many local dealers belong to a network of oxygen providers and can also assist with the arrangements." 
An website called "Breathin Easy" has listings of oxygen suppliers located throughout North America  at http://www.breathineasy.com.  The directory is also in a printed form.  Details on how to get a copy can be found on their web site. Travel agents that specialize in trip planning for travelers with special needs often can assist with arranging oxygen.

The following companies can arrange oxygen in a growing number of destinations around the world.  They do charge a fee for the service, but will take care of all the details.
