Collection: Travel

The travel industry is rapidly recognizing the value of serving the 20% of the world's population with disabilities. Travel more than anything else, is pushing many countries to improve accessibility not only in structures and transportation, but politically. However, for wheelchair users, especially those unable to transfer themselves, a comfortable inclusive vacation is still elusive or minimally requires extensive planning and research. Broadened Horizons will highlight a few unique all-inclusive packages to destinations worldwide where specific partner-providers have gone out of the way to offer an incredibly inclusive experience. The most challenging yet often overlooked issues will be completely addressed for each listing including power-wheelchair friendly ground transportation, ceiling lifts (if available), and recreation/tourism opportunities since Broadened Horizons understands it is not just about getting there and staying in the hotel, but experiencing all the destination has to offer!

I will be adding extensively to this section with some of my travel tips for wheelchair users. The Comfort Carrier makes flying easier, more comfortable, less intimidating, and safer. By following some simple rules you can even feel fairly confident your wheelchair will arrived in one piece because we all know the airlines do not only break guitars!

 

Airlines break more than Wheelchairs

Check the dimensions of the cargo door to ensure your wheelchair can remain in me up bright position when loaded.  It then gets strapped down just like you would do in your Van and remains relatively secure.  Many damages occur when wheelchair does not fit to cargo door and must be tipped on its side or otherwise disassembled.  Then upon arrival different staff who have never seen that wheelchair or how it was disassembled must try to figure out how to reassemble.  This leads to many problems people have encountered.  Also any parts that are removable should be removed and stored in the overhead bin.  Adaptive technologies take priority over all other luggage, even other passengers carry-on luggage.
