Wheelchair Accessible Travel…You CAN do it!

By Kristy Lacroix, Wheelchair Escapes

Where would you like to go? What would you like to do? The world is opening up to the wheelchair traveler and I am here to help your accessible travel dreams come true!

See the World from your Wheelchair

I am a Certified Accessible Travel Specialist with more than 24 years hands on wheelchair travel experience which initially came from traveling with my husband. He has MS, uses a power chair and has not walked for 25 years.

We have journeyed to many places and, through Wheelchair Escapes, have helped others to do the same. Please don't let a disability stop you from experiencing the joy of travel. The more wheelchair travelers there are, the better the services and experiences there will be for all to enjoy.

There are accessible vehicles and tours throughout the world waiting for you. I work with providers around the globe who have inspected every path along the way and I know all the ins and outs. For example, many of my clients are surprised to find out that their wheelchair will fly for free. Yes, even a power chair!

Many clients ask what my service charge is. I am happy to say that 99% of the time I am paid by the vendor. You get the benefit of my knowledge and experience basically for free. Think of it as a gift!

Do you want to zip line or scuba dive or swim with the dolphins?  Do want to travel to Europe, or go on a cruise? See our own National Parks? Remember, you will never know, if you do not ask. You will not do, if you do not try. I am here to help you. Also, I have the power of Cruise Planners behind me to be able to go the extra mile for you.

Just ask Jayne Serfass, who couldn't believe so many options were available to her. "I am so grateful for crossing your path. I never in a million years would have known what to look for in travel with a wheelchair," she said. "The airline, hotel and accessible van all worked great for me. I was able to have a long overdue visit with my kids. Your knowledge of travel for the disabled helped me to travel in safety and comfort."

You CAN do it!
