If you are a wheelchair user, you may ask yourself, “How can I find accessible lodgings?” “What cities are easy to navigate?” Or, “What if something happens to my wheelchair while I am traveling?” 

Applying the information in these articles can make your trip go a lot smoother. Be prepared and able to enjoy your holiday by reading ahead on topics such as:

  • Disabled accommodations on cruises and while flying
  • How to choose an accessible caravan, cottage, or hotel room
  • What types of equipment to bring, and the benefits of travel insurance
  • How to get around once at your destination by using wheelchair accessible transportation

Some of the tips you will learn are:

  • Going on a cruise can be an excellent choice for an accessible holiday.
  • When flying, assistance should be provided both at the airport as well as on the aircraft, at no additional charge.
