Accessible Travel & Leisure

Accessible Travel & Leisure was formed by 3 wheelchair users with a vision to create 'barrier free holiday' for the disabled, less mobile and people who have difficulty walking or mounting steps.

Please note - the following information is extracted from the website www.accessibletravel.co.uk).

Accessible Travel and Leisure has provided holidays for disabled holidaymakers, wheelchair users and less-mobile travellers, and their family and friends, since the 1990s. Our managing director Andy Wright is a wheelchair user and family man who had experienced the challenge of travelling with a disability. He decided to combine his travel experience with his personal knowledge of disability and founded a tour operator to provide trustworthy accessible holidays for others with reduced mobility.

More disabled customers than other companies
Andy personally inspected many top holiday destinations in Europe and beyond to assess their accessibility and suitability for wheelchair users. By hand-picking a team of highly experienced travel professionals, he was determined to ensure that disabled people were shown the same dignity and respect as their able-bodied counterparts when travelling. Since then, Accessible Travel and Leisure has successfully facilitated holidays for more disabled customers than any other specialist operator.

Unique experience and disability awareness
Our highly trained and experienced team of travel consultants have all worked for us for over 12 years. As a result, they’ve accumulated considerable knowledge and experience from our many customers who have numerous and wide-ranging specific requirements. To further enhance their understanding of suitable disabled and accessible holiday options, all our team, with Andy, have inspected our accessible properties. No other disabled travel company offers such a unique blend of travel experience, disability awareness and understanding.

As a result of our reputation and experience with accessible tourism we’ve been invited to provide advice and guidance to many UK airports (including London Heathrow) as well as airlines, cruise lines and international hotel chains. We also regularly collaborate with charities and disabled organisations and are an official partner to the Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Society.

We understand the challenges you face

Many mainstream tour operators are unfamiliar (or uncomfortable) with arranging suitable holidays for disabled and less-mobile travellers. We’re different and we look after all holidaymakers, irrespective of their special requirements. Our holidays are suitable for individuals with carers, families and groups.

We take responsibility for ensuring that, just because you use a wheelchair or have difficulty walking long distances or climbing steps, you needn’t forego your dream holiday. Over the years, we’ve provided holidays for thousands of customers with wide-ranging, diverse medical conditions and illnesses including these:

• Alzheimer’s disease • Arthritis
• Autism • Cancer
• Cerebral Palsy (CP) • Diabetes
• Down’s Syndrome (DS) • Head and brain injuries
• Learning difficulties • Loss of limbs
• Motor Neurone Disease (MND)                         • Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
• Muscular Dystrophy (MD) • Parkinson’s disease
• Polio • Spinal injuries
• Spina Bifida • Stroke survivors

Rest assured that we can help with your holiday requirements, irrespective of your possible limitations. We understand the importance of ensuring that every element of your holiday is as stress-free as possible. By better understanding the challenges you face we can use our extensive knowledge and experience to create the perfect holiday for you, your family and your friends.
