We have been supplying this CPAP + Ventilator Luggage Tag since 2010 and it has proved to be very helpful at Airport Security and Luggage Check-in to identify your important medical equipment which needs to be a carry-on item when flying.  Placing the Tag on your machine's bag is also recommended when taking it anywhere, so that in the event of losing it, you can be easily contacted and it can be returned to you.

The Tag is strong plastic which won't break easily, measures 11 x 6 cm and comes with a red pvc robust strap.  There are strips on the card to make writing on it easier, and there is enough space to write your name and telephone number, and putting your mobile number here would be the best idea, as you most likely will have your mobile with you when travelling, which means you can quickly be contacted should the machine be found by someone.  The best pen to use would be a fine-tipped permanent marker, and there is the option to purchase the luggage tag both with or without a permanent marker pen.

The image shows both the front and back of the luggage tag, and for anyone unable to view the images on their computer the wording states:-


"Medical Equipment for Respiratory Therapy.  NOT to be separated from the owner (followed by writeable strips for name and contact no)."


"CPAP/BiPAP/APAP/VPAP/NIV for the treatment of Sleep Disordered Breathing Conditions, such as Sleep Apnoea (Apnea).  This is vital therapy and should NOT be separated from the owner, or classed as additional carry-on baggage when travelling."

Having the Tag on your machine's carry bag is also useful to alert your fellow passengers to the fact of why you have more hand luggage than them!! 


  • CPAP, BIPAP, VPAP, APAP and Ventilator Machines are allowed to be carried on flights, and most airlines will not class it as extra hand luggage.  However, you are advised to contact your airline first to check on this as the rules in the UK are not the same as in the USA at the moment, although we are hearing more positive experiences from travellers these days.
  • Remember, if you intend to use your Machine on your flight, most flight operators need to give permission before you fly.

Very useful luggage tag for my CPAP machine. Reasonable price and swift delivery. It was really easy to write details on it with a 'Sharpie'.

Sorry you found this pricey, but they aren't cheap to manufacture due to the writeable strips which we felt were very important.

Ready for the holiday

This is the first time flying since being diagnosed and am hoping thus tag will help make things smoother at check in. I'll keep it on the bag for hospital visits as well.

Excellent tag clearing stating that the devise it is attached to is medical equipment and it cannot be parted with its owner.
Details all the different machines that people might be carrying.
Writing is bold and clear and makes you take notice.

We try our best to ship all orders received by us Monday-Friday on the same working day if received before 12 noon, and more often than not orders processed before 3 pm will be despatched the same day whenever possible.  Weekend or UK bank holiday orders are sent out the next working day.  An automated email is sent when products have been despatched so please check your spam box and add us to your safe senders list.  Also, if you do not receive an email confirmation, please check that you have typed the correct email address in your account.

All orders are sent via 1st class mail within the UK.  Masks and some other more expensive products are always sent via 'signed for' insured delivery and cannot be left in 'safe' places, but there is the option for an alternative shipping address when processing the orders.   International orders are sent via tracked Airmail, and whilst we're happy to ship internationally, we cannot be held responsible for any charges that may be added in your own country.

Delivery charges are worked out automatically by weight and you can clearly see the delivery charges before purchase.  On the rare occasion delivery charges are miscalculated by the website, a refund will be sent, as it is not our policy to make money on postage charges and neither do we add the cost of delivery into the price and offer so-called  'free delivery' like some sites and Ebay pressurise sellers to do!

Wherever possible with larger parcels, we try to re-use boxes to keep shipping costs down and protect the environment.

If a product is out of stock and the order contains multiple items, the 'in stock' items will be sent immediately and further items will follow upon arrival with no further postage charges incurred.  


Masks and most products cannot be exchanged, unless faulty, due to health and hygiene issues, in accordance with the Consumer Contracts Regulations, (as stated in our 'Terms and Conditions' ) and where you will find our return address, so if you are unsure about any product please contact us BEFORE purchase or BEFORE opening a sealed packet.

Unopened (sealed) products in their original packing can be returned within 14 days for a refund of the product cost, but the purchaser is to pay the return postage, and we would advise retaining proof of postage.  This excludes any faulty goods, for which postage will be reimbursed.  A full refund for the price of the product will be issued when received by us, less the original postage charges when the order was sent to you.



Most of the products we sell are eligible for Zero Rated VAT in the UK and Europe, and in order to qualify, you should meet the criteria for the following HMRC VAT Declaration:-

  1. You or the person you are purchasing on behalf of have "a condition which the medical profession treats as a chronic sickness," (sleep apnoea and sleep disordered breathing, which require therapy, are such conditions).
  2. "The goods or services are for the personal or domestic use of the customer."

We cannot advise on individual cases, but more information can be found on HMRC’s website under notice 701/7 on the following link

If you are purchasing on behalf of someone else who meets the above criteria, you must provide their name and address, and you will be prompted of this during the checkout process.

Customers living outside of Europe do not pay UK VAT charges, so please leave the the 'zero rate eligibility' box ticked.  However, we cannot be held responsible for any additional costs incurred when the products reach your own country.

If you are purchasing with the intention of re-selling any products, you are liable to pay VAT on all products so you must untick the 'zero rate eligibility' box which will add VAT to your order.

Any products that our not eligible for zero rate VAT, will not display the VAT Declaration, and VAT will be added at checkout.
