edited January 11 in Start here and say hello!
I’m wanting to book an accessible holiday in Europe this summer, can anyone recommend either a company or destination. I walk with a stick and occasionally use a wheelchair for longer trips out.  Thankyou. PS I’ve looked at Limitless and they don’t quite fit our family.  I have 2 teenage daughters so looking for water sports and activities

    Hello @AndreaD25 thanks for joining the forum, and for your query.

    In terms of destinations I've heard that Austria is really good for providing information on accessible travel and that some of Italy's cities are also very good for navigating via a wheelchair. After a quick google I've come across LP Tour, which might be a good starting point for research as well. 

    Hopefully our members will share their own experiences with you too. To help I've changed the post title and marked it as unanswered.

    Do feel free to explore the forum if you would like to, you can browse our categories here. If you have any further questions, just ask :)

    Hi, how are you today? I have found Cyprus good for accessibility, some of the beaches have a boardwalk right up to the sea, so you won’t get stuck in the sand and the pavements are relatively good. They have a water park, which I haven’t been too, but it looks good. I went to Ayia Napa with a car, so I could travel around that side of Cyprus easily. Nicosia and famagusta were easy to get around, as a wheelchair user. I went with Jet2 for flights and the car, and privately sorted accommodation, which was a self catered flat, which worked well when going out for the day or night. 
    I hope this helps
