TabiFolk is a social network for people to share information and ask questions about accessible and inclusive travel.
15% of the world's population has some sort of disability and this number is expected to grow as the populations of many countries age. Often people with specific needs travel with multiple companions and stay longer - a multiplying effect for their economic impact on tourism. But it is still an untapped market that is eager for accessible travel opportunities - first movers can have the opportunity to find loyal customers who are very eager to share successes with their peers!
We have groups based on different locations and themes where members, guides, and companies can interact and help remove the extra concerns many people with disabilities have when traveling. "Is there an accessible tour of Paris?" "Hey I just found a great accessible taxi company in Tokyo", "What are the accessible toilets like in Mexico City?" - community and communication!
Users can connect with others and build friendships, and each user has their own blog where they can share their personal travelogs.
Guides and companies are welcome to join. In fact, we encourage it! If you chose to register as a guide or company, you can also share some of your tours/packages on your profile. (Though, please focus on ones that are the most open to everyone.
We are all in this together, so come join us and prepare for your next trip or help others get ready for theirs!
We welcome everyone - if you are interested in expanding your offerings, or have questions about how to best serve a new customer with a disability, this is a great place to start!
