Please note that we do not link to commercial sites such as travel agencies or tour groups for people with disabilities unless they also meet our informational criteria or appear on our sponsor page.
Access-Able Travel Source
Planning a trip? Be sure to visit this web site first. Search its extensive database by location for airport access, travel agency info, cruise info, accommodations, transportation, adventures, access guides and resources, and more. Also available: relay and voice phone numbers, specialized travel agents, forums, bulletin board, and newsletter.
Accessible Vacation Home Exchange for People with Disabilities
This free online service from the Institute on Independent Living matches people with disabilities who want to exchange their homes for vacations.
Breathin’ Easy: A Guide for Travelers with Pulmonary Disabilities
Everything you ever wanted to know about traveling with oxygen.
A free service designed to help you locate dialysis units near where you live, or when travelling, near where you are going. Enter an address and a map pops up with nearby dialysis units. The concept is great, but the implementation is not comprehensive: we struck out totally with Boston, Cleveland, New York, and Rome. Worth a shot, especially if the database improves.
