    Has anyone traveled outside of US (or anywhere actually) and either didn't take/use their CPAP or used another option? We may travel to Germany in September and there are so many baggage costs and restrictions that I would love to leave my machine behind. The travel machines are out of my price range and I'm not sure how well they work anyway. Any creditable suggestions?

    I once went on a trip to Europe, and like you, I was concerned about lugging around my CPAP machine due to baggage constraints. Instead, I explored some alternative options. I found that some hotels offer CPAP rentals, which can be a convenient choice if you're staying in one place for a while. Additionally, I discovered travel-sized machines that were more affordable and didn't break the bank. They might not be as fancy as the pricier models, but they did the job quite well during my travels. Regarding your Germany trip, I stumbled upon this helpful resource about staying safe while traveling It's always a good idea to stay informed about the local safety aspects when visiting a new place.

      One option you could consider is trying out nasal strips or nasal dilator devices. They're not as effective as a CPAP machine, but they might provide some relief and help you sleep better without the bulk of a machine.Another idea is to contact your airline and see if they have any special arrangements for passengers with medical equipment. Sometimes they can waive baggage fees or provide assistance with carrying the machine onboard.Also, if you're looking for a great place to stay, I had an awesome experience at Broadbeach accommodation in Australia. They really went above and beyond to make my stay comfortable, and I wish more places were like them!
