Non-US Disability/Handicapped Access
November 21, 2017 9:01 AM   Subscribe

Can anyone suggest an information source for learning about disability/handicapped accessibility resources in other countries? Are public buildings/facilities set-up or required to have ease-of-access entry? I have family members that would like to travel but are concerned about a lack of access. In particular, they are mobility-impaired and use either a walker or scooter for most of their daily activities.

Here is a website with international accessible-friendly places.

You might also try searching "accessible travel;" I found a UK agency that specialises in booking for customers with assisted mobility.

Lonely Planet publishes an accessible travel guide (it's a free pdf) that contains a country-by-country list of links and resources.

Open Britain has some UK-specific information.

Emma Muldoon is a travel blogger who is also a wheelchair user, and her posts are quite recent.
