Travel agencies, hotels, airlines, and cruise lines are more aware of the needs of physically disabled travel passengers than ever before – and have taken steps to provide greater access and amenities.
Even considering the positive momentum for accommodating travelers with disabilities, it is a good idea to work with a travel agent who specializes in making travel itineraries and arrangements for mobility challenged individuals.
To make travel more fun and fulfilling, here are some tips to keep in mind.
If you are more interested in traveling on your own schedule, a recreational vehicle may be a viable option to consider. The Handicapped Travel Club, formed in 1973, is an excellent resource on RV traveling for people with a wide range of disabilities.
