We all want the very best travel experiences.
So how do you get them?
Most of it comes down to how well informed you are when planning your trips.
Why an Accessible Travel Forum
That’s why we built the Accessible Travel Forum on accessibleGO.com.
- Travelers with disabilities can give and get one-on-one tips
- They can exchange travel ideas
- And most of all, just have fun talking about travel with likeminded people!
Here’s a great question about airlines in our newly launched forum:
Travel is More Fun Together
Sure, the forum is great for those deal breaker technical questions, like a tour company refusing to let you bring a mobility scooter...
But sharing fun ideas and experiences is just as important!
For example, one traveler named Hilton, introduced a GPS/Smartphone travel game called Munzee (similar to Geocaching):
Everyone Wants to Help Each Other
When you’ve spent years “learning the hard way,” the most rewarding thing you can do is share what you’ve learned with others.
accessibleGO’s community has both seasoned globetrotters and those traveling for the first time with a new disability.
One accessibleGO member who replied to that post (and has M.S.) has been on over 30 cruises!
Why Not a Facebook Group?
Well, we did consider creating a Facebook group for the community.
The thing is, Facebook groups do not offer a way to organize topics very well.
What you get on Facebook is one endless chronological stream of posts. It’s great for the personal news feed. But we want to collect useful conversations about specific travel topics that are easy to find now or in the future.
Every topic in the accessibleGO travel forum sits in a relevant category, such as "Cruises" or “Hotels” or "Families with ASD.” That gives each conversation a lasting place where visitors can easily seek answers to their questions.
And each topic has a timeline that instantly shows the history of each discussion.
The accessibleGO travel forum also gives “reward badges” the more you engage with other users and their posts. This allows us to publicly recognize the top contributors in the community over time.
