• Guaranteed adapted rooms upon confirmation of booking
• Arranging transfers in adapted vehicles
• Sourcing and booking mobility equipment essential for day to day living
We can source and book flights from any UK airport. We recommend the flights with the best cost and flight times.
Airport assistance can be pre booked and arranged when booking flights through ourselves.
• Help with bags and checking in
• Help with getting through the security area
• Help with boarding the aircraft
• Hire of airport wheelchairs and much more
Even if you are fairly mobile, there can be long distances within airports and therefore assistance might still be required. We can arrange for someone to help you at the check in desk to assist you with checking in your bags. Someone will escort you to the aircraft (either from check-in or from the gate, whichever is your preference) and help you to board the aircraft using an ambulift if the plane is not connected with an air bridge. They will then assist you to your seat using transit chair if required.
Accessible accommodation and wheelchair accessible resorts
We specialise in booking holidays for the disabled in wheelchair adapted rooms and accommodation with wheelchair access in properties in UK, Europe and the rest of the world. In contrast to other companies not specialising in holidays for disabled people, we will not book flights until we have received a confirmation of the accessible room booking. This can take a few days but it does guarantee the accessible room before booking the flights and incurring costs. Companies not specialising in holidays for disabled people cannot usually guarantee an accessible room.
Often accessibility can only be truly assessed according to an individual's personal needs and requirements. While we cannot guarantee an environment that provides 'access for all', we aim to provide an environment that is relatively accessible. We aim to help make your holiday as barrier free as possible, particularly by excluding resorts and/or accommodation that are definitely NOT barrier free. The properties and resorts featured on our website are included because, in our judgement, they offer a good level of access for wheelchair users.
Wheelchair adapted taxi transfers
A major challenge for disabled people going on holiday is airport transfers. We will arrange transfer to and from the airport in wheelchair adapted vehicles if required. Please note that Egypt and Cuba do not have wheelchair adapted taxi transfers available. Whilst accessibility has been significantly improved in these resorts in recent years, unfortunately it is still not possible to hire mobility equipment or to source adapted taxi transfers. These resorts are only suitable for travellers with restricted mobility who can transfer into the seat of the vehicle.
Mobility Equipment Hire Abroad
We deal with companies that offer mobility equipment hire such us shower/commode chairs, electric scooters, mobility hoists, power assisted wheelchairs, manual wheelchairs, bath lifts, walkers, profiling beds, standing and rising aids and more. Most resorts offer a good selection of mobility equipment, but there a few resorts where this is more difficult. We would suggest you call us on 0800 622 6000 to discuss your requirements with one of our experienced travel consultants. Once we know your requirements we can recommend a resort that is suitable for your needs. Please note, it is not possible to hire mobility equipment in Egypt. Whilst accessibility has been significantly improved here in recent years, unfortunately it is still not possible to hire mobility equipment or to source adapted taxi transfers.
