Tourism is for everybody

Dear Sir or Madam,

Have you ever tried to book a journey that is as accessible as possible? But accommodation is often only the smallest problem and the lack of accessibility is more of a structural nature. It's a good thing that there are experts who can help you with your booking and are also committed to making the entire infrastructure in the travel industry more accessible - like Tourism for All. We asked the British organisation about the accessibility of tourism.

Have a nice week,

Anne Hofmann
