Where to go on holiday as a disabled traveller
Finding accessible hotels and transport isn't always easy, so we've selected some wheelchair friendly destinations
Thursday 31 July 2014
Travelling with a disability does have additional considerations but with enough research holidays shouldn’t be too stressful.
They can however be rather expensive; as a wheelchair user I can’t always jump on the local public transport so the cost of taxi fares soon rack up and not all destinations have hire cars with manual hand controls.
It can be more difficult if you’re trying to stick to a low budget, but if you put in the research online and speak to staff at the destination it will eventually pay off. From accommodation to transport, UK and abroad,here are the best places I've visited that I would recommend for wheelchair users.
