Individual, family or small group of travelers

Whether you are planning to travel as a Free Independent Traveler (FIT), a Supported Assisted Traveler (SAT) or as any combination of the two, we have the deep knowledge of the complexities of accessible travel and the experience necessary to organize your trip.

We work with you to plan your perfect trip.


Free Independent Travelers

We work with you to plan every aspect of your trip, including the design of your itinerary, schedule, visits and other activities. We then take care of all the logistics of the implementation of your travel plan, including booking your hotels, accessible transfers and transportation, renting an accessible vehicle, making reservations for venues, activities and tours, taking care of your adaptive and mobility equipment needs, and so on.

While traveling, we also provide you with on-site support services, accessible in most destinations by reaching out to us and our local partners by phone, Skype and other means. You travel independently with the knowledge and confidence that we are always available to assist you in any way necessary.

The difference with FIT travelers of course is that we also provide you with a team of professionals to accompany you in your travel, such as expert guides, drivers and physical assistants.


Flexible travel

And of course, we can accommodate any combination of the two. You need someone to drive or accompany you just for a day or two? You want to be independent during your in-city stay but would like to be fully assisted for the road-trip portion of your trip? We can guide you in deciding how to plan for the best solution. We work with you to tailor the trip to your expectations and requirements.

Organization planning an accessible group trip

Whether you are a non-profit association, a government organization or a commercial enterprise, you are dedicated to serving the travel needs of a specific population with unique mobility or accessibility requirements. We absolutely love working with organizations. Over the years, we have developed a number of great programs and destinations in the US that are uniquely suited for group travel.

We work with you to design and implement the travel plans best suited to your expectations, requirements and budget.


Process

The work process typically starts with your preliminary inquiry and the communication of a set of basic parameters such as the preferred destination, the overall character of the trip, the length of the stay, the number of expected participants and so forth. It is always helpful also to receive as soon as it is practical any budgetary considerations as well as the physical, mobility and accessibility requirements of your group.

It usually takes a couple of exchanges of information to form a basic understanding of what you have in mind. We have a handy questionnaire to guide you through the process, though we find that verbal and/or Skype conversations are also a practical way to move forward efficiently. Once we have this basic outline, we create a private, safe and secure online environment to enable a seamless communication and exchange of information. This is your unique and protected space. We work with Google Docs and Google Drive environments but can also adapt to your preferred platform.  


Timeline

From our experience, working in close cooperation with you, we usually complete the planning of your unique program within a few short weeks. We know that organizations like yours often have a long and busy turn-around schedule. Typically, travel plans are designed and finalized at the middle of a current year for their actual travel time the following year. We understand publication deadlines in your printed and electronic catalogs. We work with you to make sure that you are ready when you need to be. We also provide you with the collateral material that you would need. We have a vast library of images, videos and other resources that we make available to the organizations.


Logistics

Working with you, we can plan every aspect of the trip, including designing the itinerary, schedule of visits and activities. We then can take care of all the logistics of undertaking the trip. We know how time consuming it can be to resolve simple matters like sourcing the right adaptive equipment or ensuring the appropriate transfers, let alone the complexity of securing accessible accommodations or wheelchair-accessible transportation for a group of travelers.

We take care of all the logistics of undertaking the trip, including booking the hotels, accessible transfers and transportation, making all the necessary reservations for venues, activities, tours, taking care of the adaptive and mobility equipment needs, etc. And naturally, we allocate the human resources to lead and support the group, such as trip bi-lingual trip leaders, drivers, expert guides and physical assistants.

In other words, from the moment they arrive at their destination to the moment they depart, we take care of your clients. The only component of a trip that we currently do not handle ourselves is the booking of airline tickets.


We are travel professionals and accessible travel is our passion. Like you, our absolute priority is the satisfaction of the travelers. We understand the value of relationships. This is the foundation of our work.  So let’s talk and start working together in serving the travel needs of your groups.
