New Handbook Directs Businesses on How to Provide Accessible Travel – And Make Money While Doing It

Share Article

Disability advocate Terry Reynolds shows why access is important now and in the future.

Terry Reynolds has been involved in transportation since 1971. During this time, he became aware that one group was not being catered to. So, he worked with airlines, cruise companies, road transport and hotels to provide better accommodations for those with physical disabilities.

Reynolds became the first person to have wheelchair transport for commercial use in the United Kingdom, and quickly became an advocate for disabled people around the world. Now, he shows businesses the long-term benefits of accommodating clients with disabilities in “Wheelchairs Scooters and Sticks.”

“Wheelchairs Scooters and Sticks” chronicles Reynolds’ experiences and how he helped achieve access travel for the disabled community. His book provides his insight on mobility and access and also features entertaining anecdotes involving his clients.

Reynolds also speaks directly to businesses about the benefits of better accommodations. He shares first-hand experience to highlight how accessible travel will generate more business and revenue.

“People with physical disabilities make up the largest minority group in the U.S.,” Reynolds said. Yet, when this group looks to travel, bare minimum efforts are made to accommodate them. Businesses should think of adding accessible travel options as an investment. A very large group of adults – baby boomers – is ageing. Spend the money now to accommodate them later.”
