What Makes for an Accessible Fall Trip?

It’s that time of the year again and time to start thinking of what makes for an accessible fall trip. My thoughts for this month will hopefully catch the attention of those who are in the business of planning fall tours. Here are some tips to kick start your fall season.

For those planning train or bus trips:

  • Make sure that your bus or train is easy for your passengers to reach. At stations that are on the transit line or easy to get to by car.
  • Make sure that your trip is well planned and takes place at a convenient time.
  • Ensure that you have enough physical assistance for seniors and persons with disabilities.

For those planning fall cruises:

  • It is important to keep in mind that cruises are becoming more and more of a sought after vacation type for seniors and retirees.
  • Accordingly, you need to cater your services to suit their needs and requirements.
  • Be sure to provide as much assistance and support to these types of consumers as this is a rapidly growing market of consumers.

This should be a good start.
