How it all started

In 2007, working on a retail project, our founder of Accessible Travel Online, now Accessible Travel News, was made aware that accessibility is usually a term, not a given.

Surprised to know the world is such an inaccessible place, she decided to do something about it, not sure how though. This is when she met Melanie.

The Travel team

Over the years, working closely with people with diverse disabilities, we gained knowledge and insight in that huge gap between businesses and their customer services when it comes to accessibility.

Each team member has its own experience, knowledge and disability. All of that knowledge and experience combined is the very foundation of all documents and company communications.

Wheelchairs, canes and assistance dogs

It was soon decided that the focus would be not only on wheelchair access, but also about travel info for people having an assistance dog and for people using a cane.
