Planet Abled, which provides for accessible travel solutions for people with disabilities in India. We are one of its kind in the world, serving people of all disabilities together in our group tours, giving them an avenue to visit places freely and confidently, leaving behind social inhibitions and apprehensions about their capabilities.
We also have a bright feather of successfully conducting the first ever rafting tour for people with disabilities in India(even spinal chord injury persons) apart from the many other innovative firsts we added to our cap.
Planet Abled is the first company to bring the concept of accessible travel in India and we now operate in 10 states covering over 30 travel destinations of various genre and serve people of all disabilities. More about us on PlanetAbled.com and reviews about us can be read here on Tripadvisor.
Since 2017 has been declared by United Nations as the International year of Sustainable tourism, we are organizing an Accessible Travel Meet on Wednesday, 27th September, which is the World Tourism Day.
This is a first of its kind event ever which in alignment with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals 2030, brings the focus of sustainable travel towards accessible travel to protect the right of everyone to travel whether or not they have a disability.
We aim to highlight the stories of travellers with disabilities and to initiate a discussion on accessible tourism. This would also be a platform where travellers with and without disabilities would get an opportunity to interact with each other and the relevant authorities (including government, corporate etc.) to take first steps towards making India a disabled friendly travel destination. Our plan is to have a candid sharing of travel experiences on aspirations of people who travel and those who don’t but wish to and the challenges that stop them from taking that very first step.
