Accessible Tourism: A Competitive Opportunity

“Accessible Tourism is relevant for everybody,” says Accessible Tourism Consultant Chris Veitch. On NewMind.com, Mr. Veitch presents a detailed discussion about travel and tourism, and people with disabilities, including the money they bring to business. According to England’s tourism agency, VisitEngland (https://www.visitbritain.org/), travellers with disabilities tend to stay longer, with an average length of stay of 3.3 nights compared to 2.9 for the market as a whole.  Their average spending is also higher per night away, compared to the average spending level.
