Special Needs

by Mary Graham

What are your travel dreams? If you are ready for excitement, something new, exotic places, we can help.  Twenty percent (20%) of travelers today have special needs.  Many more want to travel but are not sure if they can or how to make it happen.

Special needs are not only those with a disability.  You may need a little extra help walking long distances (ships and airports can be very long walks).  You may have a temporary disability from pre/post surgery, falls, etc. Sometimes traveling alone with small children can require extra help.

Don’t let this prevent you from taking that trip!

Special Needs also includes persons with disabilities.  The majority of these have mobility issues. There are many different needs, including needing oxygen. Again, don’t let that stop you from fulfilling your bucket list.

MGA has several travel advisors trained to help you meet these needs.

They can help advise you on meeting your needs whether transporting you and your mobility equipment, to finding accessible hotels, resorts and which cruise ship will best meet your needs.

They will help you decide if you want to use your own equipment or rent . Planning is important for any traveler.  But especially so if you need an accessible room, rental equipment and planning excursions. Because you want your trip to be perfect and stress free , it is very important to make plans as early as possible. 

Always, Always, Always get insurance. This is important for any traveler but more so for those with special needs.  Your advisor will help you find which will be your best choice. MGA are there for YOU. They want your trip to be one made just for you.

With their help you can have the courage, imagination, and trust to go see what the world has to offer, and know all your special needs are taken care of.

Please ask questions that are not included and we will help you find an answer.

With the help of your MGA travel advisor you can find the courage, imagination, and trust to go see what the world has to offer and know all your special needs are taken care of.   As a special needs person, I have some first hand experience with several trips I have made with MGA . 

I want to share some photos. Would love to have anyone else who travels with MGA and have used their special needs experts to posts photos as well.

Many pathways in Europe. I like to take a thick pillow for my wheelchair or scooter….
