We help give you the confidence to take a holiday or break
We know that many people with access needs have concerns about planning a holiday or break.
You may believe that the facilities you need to allow you to enjoy a holiday or break will not be available – at least not where and when you want them and at a price you can afford. And you may worry that even if accommodation or an attraction is accessible to you, you may not be welcomed and the staff may not understand what you need or how to give you good service.
And we know that people who are newly experiencing impairment and having access needs – perhaps as a result of an accident or condition - can feel particularly anxious about the prospect of planning a holiday.
But there is really no need for anyone with access needs to feel nervous about planning or taking a holiday or break. The range and quality of accessible accommodation have improved enormously in recent years and attraction operators and event organisers understand better how important it is to be accessible to all visitors. Wherever you want to go and whatever you want to do, there is a holiday or break which is right for you and which you will really enjoy.
The most important piece of advice we would give anyone with access needs who wants to take a holiday or break is to plan the holiday or break that you WANT, not just the one that you think you can have.
