Going away on a well-deserved holiday is one of life's luxuries, something we should all enjoy from time to time. However, when you suffer from mobility problems, joint pain or movement issues, you'll probably have a specific type of vacation in mind, with you feeling that there isn't much out there to suit your needs.
That being said, there're plenty of websites and resources available to help you pick the perfect destination, and numerous products CareCo offer that can make your holiday easier and more comfortable.
The internet is probably your first port of call as a disabled tourist when organising a holiday for yourself as a disabled person or for somebody else, whether they're a member of your family or a friend.
Enable Holidays are a UK-based company that aim to help people with specific needs create their perfect holiday, whether you want to stay within the UK or travel further afield. Having visited every resort themselves, Enable Holidays promise that you'll be given the best service, and will not take a booking unless they can guarantee you're given an adapted room.
Their E-Grading System makes it simple and easy to choose your accommodation, clearly stating how spacious each hotel room is, and whether your chosen bathroom suite is adapted or not.
If you require help whilst away, Enable Holidays (alongside Advantage Healthcare Group) can organise for a professional carer to accompany you, taking away any anxiety you may have about being away from home. From Florida to France, Ibiza to India, Enable Holidays give you plenty to choose from at great prices.
If air travel isn't for you, how about a cruise? P&O have partnered with DisabledHolidays.com to bring you great cruises at the right prices, guaranteeing you the best advice and care available.
Services include adapted cabins, assistance at ports, hired equipment delivered to you room, and insurance for those with pre-existing conditions, giving you peace of mind for the length of your vacation. With P&O cruises setting off for destinations all over the world, you'll have the time of your life!
However, if you're looking to stay within the UK there're plenty of options to choose from, with many resorts and companies able to provide adapted rooms for those with specific requirements.
Haven are one such company that can provide specially designed and adapted static caravans, with plenty of room for wheelchairs and other equipment. With trained advisors available to talk you through every aspect of your booking, all of your needs can be catered for. Plus, with their resorts situated in beautiful coastal areas, you can really enjoy a proper, British seaside holiday, without the worry of any mobility issues getting in the way.
Stay Mobile on Holiday
If you've already planned your dream holiday but are unsure of the kind of equipment available to make your stay comfortable and easy, CareCo can provide everything you might need.
We understand that many vacations include lots of walking, whether it be around the airport or in and around your resort, tiring you out and ruining your mood - so why not invest in a Travel Mobility Scooter?
The CareCo Zoom, rated 4.5/5 stars by our customers, is a top of the range, lightweight scooter portable enough to be packed away for your travels. Separating into five pieces, the Zoom is compact and sturdy, yet easy to put back together, giving you more time to enjoy the sunshine. Complete with a 12 Ah rechargeable battery, giving you a huge 10 mile (16km) range, you'll be able to travel all over without the worry of running out of power.
Or, if a walking frame or stick is more suitable for your needs, we offer a wide range of foldable and adjustable canes, as well as collapsible walkers, providing plenty of storage room for all your holiday souvenirs and plenty of sunscreen!
With a diverse and varied range of products to select from, CareCo is the discount mobility company you can trust.
