There are many travel resources to assist people with disabilities. Resources range from taking your first steps on the world of traveling such as making a list of what to bring while you are abroad to booking wheelchair accessible accommodations, to accessible transportation, and accessible site seeing all over the world!

Due to Covid-19 restrictions we recommend you adhere to your local government restrictions on traveling. If you still choose to travel, please be safe and take all precaution necessary such as wearing a mask and/or face shied, use hand sanitizers as well as washing your hands regularly. Remember to get your caregiver to wipe down any seat, tray or anything else before you touch or sit down on the item. Once you arrive at your destination have your caregiver wipe down your entire wheelchair.
