Inclusive tourism is in extreme growth around the world and many counties are taking notice and capitalising on the opportunity now. 

Tourism businesses with improved accessibility appeal to a wider range of visitors. It’s not just disabled visitors who benefit, it’s families, older people, practically all your visitors in one way or another. 

People with disabilities spend 1.5 times more than others, stay an average of 8 nights, are often in groups of four or more and tend to travel during the quieter times.

Work with us to custom design your suite of services for a great tour and/or a great tour business.

Visitors

Choose your tour activity and then contact us. We can work with you and your Tour Provider to make your selection as inclusive as possible.

TRAVELLER SUPPORT

If you are a traveller and you would like some reassurance around accessibility at a destination or an activity, we can talk to you about your requirements and conduct an onsite audit which can provide you with some certainty when selecting your choice of accommodation, tour or activity. We provide a short walk through video and a simple report tailored to your individual requirements.

We can recommend businesses and tours that are proactive in providing an inclusive experience.

EQUIPMENT
We have a bank of equipment that we maintain for hire. Our equipment ranges from adaptive items use for transfers and lifting to equipment that increases access to adventure tourism including trekking, hiking, boating, off road adventuring, whatever you are in to.  You imagine it and we will develop a solution to allow you to access it.  Contact us to discuss your needs.

We can also assist you to make your accommodation more accessible.  We have a range of ramps and rails, bedding, living and shower equipment designed to make whatever accommodation you are in more comfortable.  Coral Coast Mobility Products
