Going on Holiday as a wheelchair User

In this blog, we’ve put together some of the ideal holidays that allow you to maximise your experience without requiring a great deal of walking, especially on difficult terrain.

Speciality holidays

Worrying about mobility or accessibility should be the very last thing on your mind when you’re going away for a lovely holiday, with this in mind, lots of travel companies have put together holidays specially tailored for people with various access requirements or even special care needs.

Coach trips

When planning a coach trip, all you have to do is arrive at the pick-up point and the rest of the transportation will be organised on your behalf. Frequently the trip organisers will sort out comfortable rooms and accommodation along the way, so the coach itself is only used to travel throughout the day, but this may vary from providers.


A villa is a perfect spot for those who may need a mobility aid. Not only is it a cost-effective option if you are heading on holiday with a bigger group or with family members, but also having kitchen facilities available to you also helps to keep the cost down as you will not have to dine for every meal. A villa will have all the facilities you need for a relaxing holiday, often including a private swimming pool and terrace area.
