Booking a trip in 6 months

AccessibleTravel.Online was founded to give the independent traveler using a wheelchair, or the tourist with limited sight, a starting point online.

If you want to travel the world, visit the highlights, book a flight and find great deals online for your favorite hotel or other accommodation, you should not get into that as in a 6 months full time job.

Online rain forest

The huge rain forest of websites offering information on accessible travel is just too large to visit.

Here at AccessibleTravel.Online you don’t need to look further. Stop here and relax, find what you need, accessibility guaranteed!

All information we share has been carefully checked by one of the ATO offices, whether it is about accommodation, tourist sites or accessible tours offered by a travel agent specializing in accessible travel.

Accessibility benefits all

Accessibility is about such a variety of factors that you can never be conclusive. However, you can do all you can to increase the accessibility standards to the highest level possible to be of service to as many people as possible. On the other end you can start implementing company policy that a minimum level of accessibility is ensured. And, by all means, share that online, so people can prepare their visit.

We strongly recommend websites keep an accessibility page in the ‘Visit’ menu or on the front page. Good information is key when planning travels.

Our Business Philosophy

Accessibility can be very personal, just like your preferred taste. We don’t define that for you. You can increase the accessibility standards to the highest level possible, on the other end you can agree on a minimum level of accessibility that is ensured.

At the ATO website you will find accessible travel information, accessible tours and accommodation and travel gear that will make your trip even better.

Ultimately we want to become the worldwide platform, giving useful and practical information for all travelers with a disability, whether they are wheelchair users, visually impaired, or people traveling with assistance dogs.

We work with local partners – currently in Africa, Asia, Australia, the Caribbean, Europe and the United States – to ensure that information shared has been checked.

Local offices make the difference, working with hotels, museums, theme parks and other venues.

Thank you for visiting, please come back soon!
