Here are a few tips for making the most of your next adventure!
From finding an adequate travel destination to the right accommodation, it is crucial to be aware of some of the common issues in advance. In this way, you can avoid unpleasant surprises.
Take Assistance From Travel Agents
Travel agencies have agents who have expertise in working with physically disabled. However, the requirements may vary from people to people, so it is important to hire or choose a qualified travel agent who knows the rope.
Avoid Connecting Flights
First and foremost, ensure you choose shorter flights over long flights because the journey may get uncomfortable with longboarding hours. And if possible, avoid connecting flights.
Be Aware Of The Rules At Security Checks
Be aware that even if you are in a wheelchair, you may need to go through a mundane pat-down security search. If you want to get advance information, you can contact the TSA - Transportation Security Administration.
Book Accomodations In Advance
Many first-world countries have "wheelchair friendly" or pitch services for physically disabled. However, there are hundreds of countries that do not offer such facilities to handicaps. So, always ensure you choose the right destination.
Carry Extra Medications And Proof Of Necessity
As mentioned above, security checks are strict at the airports; ensure you take a doctor's statement and phone number. Preferably better to make a statement on letterhead with potential complications, medications, information on your condition and other pertinent information.
