We do offer accessible travel packages. These travel packs are a combination of pick-up and drop-off with private adapted transport, accessible accommodation and a selection of private adapted tours. We can include dinner reservations for you.
Why do I need to provide the dimensions of my wheelchair?
Not every wheelchair is the same, not every handicap accessible taxi is the same. We will check with the driver prior to your arrival if your wheelchair fits the vehicle and fits the ramp width. In case needed we arrange a larger size vehicle, or offer a wheelchair van service.
Why do I need to provide information about my luggage?
Transportation for disabled people should be guaranteed. Besides your wheelchair or scoot transfer, guests bring luggage for their holidays. We would like to avoid situations in where your adapted vehicle does not have enough space to carry your luggage.
Why can´t I just go to the taxi-stand for airport transfers?
Wheelchair taxis are often not available or allowed at the airport or cruise port. Therefore googling “wheelchair transportation near me” or “wheelchair accessible taxi near me” will often give no results. Pre-booking a handicap taxi service takes away all stress, and avoids long waiting time.
What happens if my flight is delayed?
Our drivers check your flight status. In case your flight is late we alter the pickup time accordingly so you can be assured that whatever the time of arrival, your service is guaranteed.
What happens if my ship is delayed?

Do taxis that take wheelchairs also carry baby seats?
Wheelchair accessible taxicabs are not obliged to carry baby seats. Please notify us prior so we can arrange a baby seat.

Is Parc Guell accessible?
Barcelona wheelchair access in Barcelona is in general very good. Unfortunately Parc Guell is not one of the most wheelchair friendly sites, although differently stated on the sites own website. The parc is situated on a very steep hill. In order to get to the entrance you either need to climb up, travel with public transport or have you dropped off by means of an adapted taxi.
Once in the parc, the roads are very uneven with various stairs and tough roads, which results into many alternatives paths and detours.
If you do wish to visit the parc we advise that you travel with a companion, and take the above into account.

Why are the rates for accessible tours higher than standard tours?
People are often surprised at the level of cost of a private service, so why is the price more expensive generally for a private accessible tour than a non-accessible one organized by a Cruise Company?
Prices for private services that include accessible transport are often affected by the availability of transport (prices are highest where there is limited availability) and these prices vary considerably from country to country and can cost as much as 50% more than non-adapted transport to hire Tour guide fees are normally set by local legislation and based on a guide touring with groups of up to 25 people. The price you pay a guide to tour is the same no matter if there is 1 person or 25 touring
