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. For more information, check out the organization's web site handicappedtravelclub.com.
