Why Work With Us

____________________

At Travel For All we understand acutely the challenges faced by people with disabilities when they travel.  They are leaving the safety of what is familiar – it can be extremely stressful to be away from an environment that they are accustomed to, with all of their supports.  The anxiety this causes for some is a significant obstacle.

Having assisted thousands of travellers with specific requirements to see the world, our experts at Travel For All will be able to make very personalized recommendations, that fit your individual travel style and dreams!

We understand that just because something is labeled as accessible” that doesnt necessarily mean that it is.  Our agency actively audits our suppliers, to ensure that they can meet or exceed the requirements of our clients.  This is particularly important in destinations that are less popular, and may not have up to date information easily available online.  Almost every disabled traveller has at least one story of encountering this sort of challenge – where they believed they would be accommodated and were not.  Working with a knowledgable advisor really reduces the likelihood that travellers will face these situations during their trip.

Our accessible travel specialists will work closely with you, creating an itinerary that will allow you to travel with complete confidence.  We are available to assist you throughout the entire travel process.

“My wife and I have dealt with Tarita long before Travel For All came into existence. Over the years she has responded to all of our concerns and requests with no hesitation, and always in a timely manner even though it wasn’t always necessary. This lady will go out of her way to ensure you are happy and comfortable with your itinerary. We consider her to be one of our friends and always look forward to talking to her. You cannot ask for a better person to ensure you are well looked after.”
