New Accessible Coach Holidays To Amsterdam

Accessible Travel, the specialist tour operator for disabled travellers, is pleased to announce the launch of their new barrier free coach holidays.  These small group tours, designed for less mobile travellers and their partners, will combine comfortable transport, on specially equipped coaches, accessible hotel accommodation and include day trips and excursions that everyone can enjoy. For people looking for a holiday without flying these are ideal.

Accessible Travel have partnered with Jumbulance whose luxury coaches are specially designed to be fully accessible and take both manual and electric wheelchairs/scooters. A platform lift provides easy access, and there's a disabled toilet, ample storage space for equipment and wheelchairs, comfortable reclining seats and a small kitchen for complimentary hot drinks.

The first 6-day holiday departs to the Netherlands on 13 April 2015. The coach will pick up passengers from a number of locations around the UK and journey to the Netherlands. Once there the fully accessible Hotel de Palatijin Alkmaar will provide a base for the holiday with day trips to Amsterdam, the Keukenhof Gardens, the Hague and time to explore Alkmaar’s cheese market.

Ali Parker, General Manager of Accessible Travel, says, “Our customers are looking for something different.  A holiday that offers a real alternative to flying, is extremely good value and completely barrier-free.  We have used all our experience in operating accessible holidays to create these special coach tours and are very excited to be working with Jumbulance, who are also specialists in providing barrier free transport. We look forward to welcoming both our previous clients and new customers onboard.”

“We have run very successful river cruises over the last few years and these coach holidays are our latest offer for small group holidays with customers whose mobility is limited. We all know the population is ageing, and we’re finding increasingly that our customers and equally their partners want support when travelling abroad. They want help not just with transport but also in finding a resort that they can easily get around and accommodation that suits their needs.  We have used our 17 years of experience to create these coach trips. We are sure they will offer not just an accessible holiday, but being a small group a holiday where our customers can share experiences about mobility and form lasting friendships for future support.”
