June 29, 2021 4:14 am


When planning a holiday it is always a good idea to check how you will be able to get to and from your accommodation, this includes checking if you will be able to use a wheelchair. One compromise that you may have to make is to take a smaller car or minibus rather than a bigger vehicle, because larger vans might not have a ramp for wheelchairs. Another compromise you might have to make is to travel by road rather than using rail.

A wheelchair accessible holiday can be just as enjoyable and successful as any other holiday. It will just require some extra effort on your part to ensure you make the most of it and plan ahead. You should sit down with your family or carer and decide what sort of accommodation you would all prefer. This could include either renting a house, going in a hotel or staying in a bed and breakfast. By doing this you can ensure that you include all the wheelchair needs of your family or group, which in turn means that you won’t have to spend any time searching for alternative accommodation.
