Travel Options for People With Disability post image

People are always looking for a great way to quench their wanderlust with a holiday that is designed exactly for what they want and what they need. Sure you can travel with your family or friends— if that’s not possible, travelling solo is also perfectly fine. If you or a loved one with a disability want to experience the benefits of travelling, you can certainly choose to book on a supported holiday that involves a personalized itinerary ultimately centred on your interests. You also have the option to have a carer who will assist you in making your trip more seamless. It is indeed great to know that these days, the travel options for people with disability are already increasing and a fun variety of many travel packages to exciting destinations are readily available.


While some prefer to stay in the comfort of their own home to enjoy indoor activities for people with a disability, many travelers with limited mobility are still very much drawn to travelling and exploration. If they have a dream destination or an activity that they wanted to try, it is best to support them by helping them achieve that perfect holiday that they’ve been dreaming of by booking a supported holiday. You could ask them if they want to go on a holiday solo, or if they want to spend their holiday with the people that matter most to them. Some plan it for their family members while others book it on their own. This shows that many persons with a disability do feel confident in booking the packages and enquiring the specifics for themselves. Allotting enough time for the preparation and holiday planning for a holiday will make things much easier.


One of the wonderful benefits of a supported holiday package is that it lets travellers with a disability and wheelchair travellers experience a getaway individually or as a group. Even while travelling with their families, it's undeniable that there will be times when it’s nice to just get away momentarily and experience the excitement of independent travel without the need to be watched by loving, caring eyes. With a supported holiday group tour, new friendships will surely be formed while enjoying their holiday of a lifetime together!


Travellers with a disability can immensely enjoy a cruising holiday. Cruises can be as active or relaxing as you want them to be. In need of some adventure? Most cruise lines offer exciting activities and excursions onshore like hiking, swimming, spa treatments, sampling on sumptuous local foods and treats, relaxing on a sailboat, cultural tours, shopping, and a visit to a zoo, gallery, or museum, and so much more. 


For a laidback moment onboard a cruise ship, you can simply sit back and ponder on the glittering sea, gentle waves, and tangerine-coloured skies or just enjoy a delish meal while setting your eyes on the astounding glaciers and magnificent waterfalls, with the beauteous mountain ranges serving as a lovely backdrop from your cosy room on the ship. Most cruise ships have nice swimming pools, basketball courts, jogging tracks, and gyms to provide travellers with their much-needed exercise and daily dose of physical activity. This December, spend your Christmas in Mare with lots of partying and relaxation by joining our Mare Christmas Cruise!


Those who are beach lovers can also lean towards a holiday that includes some gorgeous beach destinations. Tour packages such as the NYE on the Gold Coast Tour is a fusion of theme park adventure topped with some beach fun. The Southern Australian Cruise on the other hand will give you the opportunity to bask in the crystal-clear waters of one of the most captivating beaches of Kangaroo Island. Wheelchair-friendly and accessible beaches with a warm weather and stunning diversity of sceneries will surely provide an invigorating experience. A specialized travel agency for persons with disability ensures that the beaches included in their travel itineraries are in a good, accessible location, with adaptive amenities, safety signs, medical assistance, and wheelchair ramps and pathways.
