Accessible tourism is a huge market – worldwide

In 2014 this video was produced for the European Commission and these 8 minutes make the best statement about accessible tourism. Although focused on Europe, worldwide accessible tourism is 25% of the market.

It is not only about people in a wheelchair. It is about people who are older and who need extra facilities to have a comfortable stay for example in a hotel. It is about people who are visually impaired. It is about somebody’s parent, somebody’s child, somebody’s partner or friend. It is about everybody. Everybody wants to travel the world, explore and have fun. Make sure to raise awareness. Tourism is about having fun and enjoy life. So is accessible tourism.
