Create your Accessibility Statement.
Bring together information about your tourism property to help guests with accessibility needs.
Scroll through the photos to see extracts from a detailed Accessibility Statement.
Include information like...
~ walking distance and surface from reception to accommodation rooms or activities
~ microphone system used by tour guides
~ formats available for tour or accommodation information
~ methods available for bookings and payments
Use your Travel For All Toolkit to bring together information about your property. Use what applies, ignore the rest. We make it easy - just follow the steps.
The information you include will help people who have mobility, sensory or communication limitations due to age, disability, accident or illness.

Included in your Toolkit: Training for operators and staff in understanding disability and accessible tourism
What is accessible travel?
Accessible, or inclusive, travel is about equality. It is about everyone being welcomed as your guest.
This is about more than compliance, wheelchairs and dogs – all of which are very important. Accessibility is about facilities, information and attitude.
We include training in your Travel For All Toolkit. Provide training for your team so they understand more about disability and accessible travel. Allow your team to confidently welcome all guests.
Doing something about accessibility is good for your business
Huge market opportunity
While the available market is narrow, go deep with the market you have. Almost 20% of people have a disability. Many more people travel with them. Others have access needs due to age, accident or illness. You can't tell, just by looking at your guests, who needs what.
People need information to decide which places will work for them when travelling. No information means moving on to the next place in the search results.
Provide all guests with more information when they are planning their travel and they are more likely to choose you.
Not a large investment
No place is accessible to everyone. For most people, there will be one or two must-haves when they are searching for tourism accommodation, activities and events.
Our research shows that 67% of people cannot find the information they need when planning travel and 80% consider the helpfulness of staff as a key factor in accessibility.
You do not need to embark on a high budget program, just share more information about what exists at your property now.
A smart business decision
A commitment to accessibility gives you access to more of the market. The accessible tourism market is loyal and growing.
You will secure more bookings by extending your focus. Let more people know more about you and choose you when planning travel.
The right thing to do
Taking care of others and offering equal services to everyone is the right thing to do. Almost everyone will have someone in their life who will benefit from an easier way to find travel options that are accessible for them.
This may be a friend or family member with disability, ageing parents or grandparents, someone recovering from an accident who has limited mobility, or someone with a chronic illness that limits them in some way.
Accessible and inclusive travel is about equality. It is about doing the right thing to ensure everyone can easily find places to stay and things to do.
