Travel Planning for People with Disabilities

When you have a disability traveling is often seen as an impossibility. However, people with disabilities need a change of scenery once in awhile just like everyone else. The secret to making traveling with a disability (or without one) easier is to take the time to plan for all contingencies. Then you can go and enjoy your trip.

Check out this section for a leaving home checklist, a packing list, information on accessible travel agencies, and other Tips for Making your Life Easier™ when traveling -- before you leave, while you are gone and when you return. We wish you happy travels!

"Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not."  ~  Emerson
