We provide an extensive range of services to support and improve holidays abroad for disabled travellers, cruises for eldery disabled, disabled handicapped travel for families, and disability tourism in general.
BESPOKE TRAVEL SERVICES
No two people are the same. No two travelers are the same. No disability is the same. We are a handicap travel agency offering tailor-made holidays abroad for disabled people making each trip special, unique and a memory to never forget.
Place your wishes and requirements in our safe hands and we will deliver a custom-made accessible travel plan including wheelchair airport transfers or cruise port transfers, disability accommodation, special needs at sea, mobility equipment rental and private excursions. From a multi-day tour covering the most beautiful sites of Switzerland, to a customized accessible Mallorca trip with sites you have not already seen before, or following your cruise itinerary along the Mediterranean Coast with guaranteed private accessible tours in the ports where you dock. Just tell us where you want to go and we will arrange it for you.
Auditing facilities permits hotels for disabled or other establishments to proudly highlight on all forms of media that it meets accessible criteria in key areas required for wheelchair access, such as their accessible hotel room or entrance.
Restaurants do not always have step free access. Disabled hotel rooms often have no maneuvering space on each side of the bed. Light switches and power outlets are not at mid-height. Wardrobes hanging at a height suitable for a ‘non’-disabled person, but not for someone seated. The improvements for accessible accommodation can be endless.
Accessibility issues also affect Museums and Tourist Attractions where access may be difficult due to the historical nature of a site. Adaptations can be made at many sites that do not affect structures or damage the attraction. Many historical sites and museums have created tours for disabled seniors without disturbing the site and have seen revenues rise as a result.
We offer audit services with site visits, providing advice on how to approach and improve services and access. Rank yourself to the list of disabled friendly hotels, disabled friendly cruises or disabled friendly museums. Contact us for more details.
ACCESSIBILITY MEETINGS, INCENTIVES, CONFERENCES AND EXHIBITIONS (MICE)
Our founder, Alan Broadbent, is one of the few Access Specialists focusing on Event Accessibility, and assists buyers and delegates in creating a top down business approach to embed accessibility into companies and their events.
Wheelchair and scooter users are rarely to be seen at the world’s leading M.I.C.E events for a variety of reasons, many of which mirror the general travel problems facing the disabled person. Conference and Exhibitions organizers frequently offer handicap hotel room and handicap transportation to delegates however these tend to be for the majority, i.e. able-bodied, not the disabled business person requiring special services such as: handicap taxi for airport transfers, daily wheelchair taxi service to and from an event and handicap accessible hotel rooms.
We have been the preferred provider of adapted services to IBTM (formerly EIBTM) from 2011 to the present day. Company ‘4 YFN’, as part of the World Mobile Congress, contracted Disabled Accessible Travel to audit the event venue and to provide on-site disability scooter rental in 2016 with a repeat contract for 2017. We have a strong reputation among the many disability travel agents.
Contact us for more information. Your business clients should no longer have reason not to attend your M.I.C.E. event. Other services include supply of conference speakers or research for a qualified supplier worldwide.
