Travel for the Disabled
Travelers with disabilities are defined as travelers whose mobility is reduced because of a physical incapacity (sensory or locomotor), an intellectual deficiency, age, illness, or another cause, and who may require special attention and adaptation of the transportation services that are available to all passengers. The medical preparation of a traveler with a stable, ongoing disability does not differ from that of any other traveler. The following recommendations are key to ensuring safe, accessible travel:
- Assess each international itinerary on an individual basis, in consultation with specialized travel agencies or tour operators.
- Consult travel health providers for additional recommendations.
- Use print and internet resources.
