The Accessible Tourism Podcast speaks with people with disabilities and people from the tourism industry about what its like travelling with a disability and what industry is/could be doing. Travelling with a disability can be very challenging. We explore the constraints people with disabilities experience as they travel away from home. Real life experiences from people with disabilities are shared to provide an accurate picture of what it’s like to travel with a disability. People from the tourism industry also share their experience and knowledge of providing accessible experiences to people with disabilities. Each conversation finishes with an outlook on the future for people with disabilities in the tourism industry.

We have many different groups based on topics and destinations. Right now we see that the Australia group is starting to pick up steam would love to invite some locals and Australia travel experts from Travel Massive join us in fostering this group’s growth. While you can sign up as an individual, guides and businesses are also welcome to join and can list some of their offerings on their profile page in case the people you have helped want to seek out your service...
