Planning a trip is complicated enough as it is, especially if accessibility obstacles stand in your way. Unfortunately, it seems most travel companies lack vital information regarding accessibility and people with disabilities are left with a big decision to make: travel and potentially not even have the access to embark on the activities you planned and not create the pleasurable memories you came for, or stay home to save yourself the stress and disappointment.
That decision led Neha Arora to develop Planet-Abled — a company that offers safe and fun travel experiences for those with and without disabilities alike. Growing up with a blind father and a mother who uses a wheelchair, Neha Arora rarely had the chance to properly explore the world. Every attempt to travel brought new surprises, and usually disappointment due to inaccessibility. She knew they couldn’t be the only family struggling with these issues, so she looked for a solution. Quickly, she realized there were none.
That’s where Planet-Abled comes in. Planet-Abled offers accessible travel options and leisure excursions for a wide range of disabilities. This company gives people with disabilities the opportunity and freedom to travel enjoyably, whether they want to explore one city or multiple. Planet-Abled is the only organization in the world that mixes people of all disabilities and abilities together into a group of traveling friends. Arora has an understanding that those with disabilities don’t want further isolation and also that not every person has just one type of accessibility need.
Planet Abled offers trips for solo travelers and groups alike. Every destination and vendor chosen by Planet Abled is vetted to ensure that it is truly accessible to those on the trips.
With such a company, the world of accessible travel will continue to change for the better. To learn more about Planet Abled, visit their website.
