Traveling with a Disability

With crowded terminals, flight delays and the frenetic pace to make it to your destination on time, traveling can be a hassle for people with disabilities. It doesn't have to be. The Web offers a variety of ways to make the journey almost as enjoyable as the destination.

  • Disability Travel and Recreation Resources
    Jim Lubin's site is a great place to get packing. It offers lists of transportation options, accessible destinations and travel literature. There are also links to newsletters and sites about government regulations.

  • Gimp on the Go
    The creator of this site, a disabled man, admits that his site's name might not be politically correct, but wants to grab your attention and "establish a candid atmosphere." What he's created is an excellent resource featuring destination ideas, tons of tips and information on van rentals, service animals and holiday travel.

  • Access-Able Travel Sources
    This site features time-saving tips for boarding and exiting an aircraft. Includes information for wheelchairs, oxygen tanks, services animals and more.

  • Accessible Traveler's Database
    Project Action's site allows visitors to select a state and city to search for a list of accessible transportation options. Its links include a list of national toll-free numbers for services such as Amtrak train travel, Greyhound bus information and car rental services.




  • Moss Rehab ResourceNet Accessible Travel
    The unique features of this site are a cruise checklist, lists of travel agency sites and connections to newsgroups and mailing lists.

  • DisabilityInfo.gov
    If you're a disabled person who's had a problem with air travel service, fill out the form on this site to file a complaint about accessibility problems.

  • Society for the Advancement of Travelers with Handicaps
    Provides several how-to lists for passengers with speech, sight and hearing impairments as well as passengers traveling with a wheelchair. A well-organized site, it can also aid people with kidney disease, diabetes or arthritis as they make travel plans.
