Accessible Travel and Leisure was started over 17 years ago, by combining knowledge and an understanding of the travel industry with empathy for fellow less mobile travellers, as a result of my experience as a wheelchair user.
It is for that reason I decided to form a travel company that only provided holidays to its customers that had been previously inspected and checked for their accessibility and suitability in advance. In addition, I realised how important it was to be able to guarantee the arrangements to my customers before they departed the UK – rather than simply being told that the accessible bedroom & bathroom, for example, were “on request”. In the years that followed, I set about recruiting a team of experienced travel professionals, all of whom share my passion for providing quality, barrier free holidays to our customers. Many of my staff have accompanied me on overseas inspection visits and as a result, have gained a far greater understanding of the daily issues so many wheelchair users encounter when holidaying overseas.
I look forward to welcoming on one of our holidays very soon.
