Research is key to the success of your holiday. This means making an informed decision about which destination suits you best – both in terms of your physical needs and your interests – and about which visitor attractions, hotels, restaurants, etc. at your chosen destination, can best accommodate you. You will find a wealth of information online, especially from other travellers with disabilities keen to share their experiences with others. Check out travel forums or simply type a query into a search engine to learn about accessibility in the destinations that take your fancy. Once you have decided on a destination, it helps to develop as detailed an itinerary as possible so that you can look into each place of interest/ restaurant/ hotel in terms of their accessibility.

IATA recommends luggage manufacturers make cabin baggage 42% smaller

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has recently released new guidelines for carry-on luggage, which will see the recommended allowable dimensions reduced to 55 cm x 35 cm x 19 cm. This is considerably smaller than the current standard allowance of 56 cm x 45 cm x 25 cm. If these guidelines come into play, it will become increasingly difficult for passengers to pack what they need for even a few days away. Many will once again have to check in their baggage. This means that travellers will be forced to pay checked baggage fees and will be at risk of incurring extortionate excess baggage fees. Only time will tell what level of confusion and extra cost to the traveller these new guidelines will cause.
