“According to the UN World Tourism Organization’s Secretary-General, Taleb Rifai, with 15% of the world’s population estimated to live with some form of disability, roughly 1 billion people may be unable to “enjoy the privilege of knowing other cultures, experience nature at its fullest, and experience the thrill of embarking on a journey to explore new sights.” And while people who age into disability often do not regard themselves as disabled, they largely have the
same access needs. This greater inclusivity1 focus serves people with access needs for whatever reason, and the travel industry is increasingly aware that catering to the inclusive travel market will make tourism more accessible to more people and is essential to their very viability.”
