Disability and Travel Tips
Disability and travel tips. This is the season to be jolly but it comes with its own set of stresses when travelling for the holidays – especially if you are a person with a disability.
November and December are the months where people are travelling to family or their holiday destination. Many well versed travelers are accustomed to the ins and outs of travel, but there are those who have never done this before. Here we have a few tips to help you along your way:
- Plan ahead
As a person with a disability it is tricky getting around, when travelling this becomes even trickier. There are added concerns, such as the mass of people travelling. There are unexpected issues, such as flight delays and bad weather. This is why it is important to plan way in advance.
- Organize your luggage pre-travel
Packing the night before is NEVER a good idea. As a person with a disability there are many vital things to pack for mobility and safety and you do not want to forget these.
- Pack just enough
Plan you outfits in advance and always consider weather where you are travelling. It is always a good idea to pack something warm if you are going to a warmer climate as there may just be one or two days that are cooler. Pack all the equipment you need and make sure that it is wrapped in bubble wrap so that it doesn’t get damaged during travels.
