Episode 5: Access to the World: Hotels
This next episode in our “Access to the World” series focuses on hotel accommodations for individuals with disabilities. accessibleGO is a travel website, specializing in accommodations for disabled travelers. During this conversation we discuss the challenges involved in making travel arrangements for those with special accessibility needs and how accessibleGo is helping to solve the problem to make travel easier for individuals with disabilities. Because we like to focus on solutions around here, we are also talking about how to best advocate for better accommodations, and how individuals can set themselves up for success when planning a trip.
