Removing the Barriers to Accessible Travel
You’re not alone.
Over 50 million Americans live with a long term disability that impacts how they travel.
This includes parents, children, couples, veterans, retirees, and everyone in between.
"What's the hardest part about traveling with a disability?"
WE ASKED OUR COMMUNITY:
“We struggle to find activities to do [as a couple], especially on vacation.”
“[Hotel] beds that are too high to transfer to.”
“I worry the entire flight that my $18k power chair doesn't get damaged in cargo!”
“The trouble I have most is bathrooms and entry with my wheelchair.”
“Trying to get [accessibility] information across using a service like hotels.com or tripadvisor is very difficult.”
"I am hearing impaired. Knowing that the airport PA system made an announcement but not being able to understand what it said is very unsettling.
“My biggest struggle is affording the travel.”
Let's re-imagine accessible travel...
