Spinal-Injury.net :  Holiday Guide


 

Holidays: are fun and can still very accessible to people with disabilities.  However like most things travelling and staying away from your own home may seem daunting to you if you are disabled.  This is only a general guide of useful travel tips learnt over the last ten years or so, from my own experience, and research on the Internet.  Please post any holiday experiences you have on the Message Boards. For sites dealing with specific holiday destinations please look at the Useful SCI Links pages.

Planning:  It can't be stressed enough if you don't plan a holiday in advance things can and will go wrong.  Some companies tailor packages specifically for the disabled traveller but you will have to pay a much larger cost for your holiday. You don't have to pay the inflated prices charged by some 'specialist' disability holiday companies to ensure a hassle free break if you seek the relevant information first.  Use the Internet Search engines to your advantage.  Once you have decided a destination and narrowed down a few hotels do a specific Search for the hotel to see if it has its own website.  By using this method you'll often find panoramic views of the hotel, grounds and rooms and at some of the better sites virtual tours so you can really see the place from every angle.  You'll probably also find other sites of particular interest to the disabled visitor as well.
