Travelling for people with a disability offers a wealth of opportunities
Today, travel offers for people with a disability make it possible to provide holidays to suit every taste. At REHAB, specialist event organisers present barrier-free destinations all over the world.
For people with a disability, participation in social life also means the opportunity for travelling independently and barrier-free. Whether on the beach, it the mountains or in a city, alone, with another person or in a group, there are many different offers for holidays with a handicap available.
Disabled-access accommodation for holidays without barriers
People with physical disabilities need barrier-free accommodation in order to enjoy a relaxing holiday. Many hotels have now adopted the necessary measures and welcome guests with disabilities.
For barrier-free accommodation, clear criteria apply. In order to be officially “barrier-free”, hotels in Germany need to comply with statutory regulations. As well as the DIN norm for public-access buildings and apartments, there are also uniform standards for disabled-access hotels that are set by the hotel industry. These have been developed by the German association for hotels and guesthouses, the DEHOGA, and the German hotel federation, the IHA, in cooperation with organisations representing the interests of disabled persons. Using pictograms, travellers with disabilities can see immediately whether the accommodation is suitable for them, and which features and services make them particularly suitable.
