We are honored to introduce Margarita Elizondo as our Ambassador USA. Margarita is a motivational speaker, entrepreneur, producer/host of Wheel Talk Wheel Issues, model, and author.

She is also the recipient of Channel KPBD & Union Bank’s Ability Awareness Hero of the Year Award 2016.
“I enjoy travel very much but find air travel difficult as a power wheelchair user because not every airline will accept my power wheelchair on board their planes and my chair is often damaged by those that do.
I have to be very clear when reserving a hotel stay, requesting an accessible hotel room that includes all the accommodations I need and plan in advance to insure accessible room availability.”
Margarita’s voice and following in the United States will make her the perfect advocate. Accessible Travel Online wants our team to grow our mission across the world. The tourism and hotel industry need to join forces with Accessible Travel Online and become more welcoming to all.
