Accessible Travel Tips from Twitter

the world on her Amigo!
Many of our Amigo owners are avid travelers and I love sharing accessible travel tips that fellow travelers have learned along the way. Enjoy these tips below from my Twitter friends! Click here to read more about accessible travel. 

@PositiveAboutMS There are a lot of good accessible travel places, but our favorite is Trafford Centre in the UK.

@TravelinWheels We love Maui! Our favorite travel product is the GoFreeWheel!
@CareVacations Cruise passengers should make sure they have the right equipment for their ship and ports of calls.

@ilookgoodtoday1 I make sure that I either bring a shower chair or have one available. Also, Disney World is very accommodating as are their hotels.

@tourismforalluk When visiting attractions, check if they can provide concessions for a disabled person & companion, most places admit companions free of charge. Check if the accommodation has been assessed for accessibility, and obtain an access statement if available. More travel tips here.

@RSTrust We have always flown Virgin Atlantic. The cabin staff on every flight have been great, very helpful. Storing our wheelchair in the cabin, not in the hold (to make sure the chair is ready for us when we land). The ground staff at Heathrow have always been very good too. Ensuring we are first to board the plane, especially if you have to transfer on to a small cabin wheelchair.
Thank you Twitter friends for all of the great #AccessibleTravel tips! What is your top travel tip?
