In brief: Plan for needs
Traveling while disabled presents some challenges.
Careful planning and investigation prior to booking the trip makes it easier to travel when you have a physical or intellectual disability. Make sure your adaptive equipment will work-may need an electric convertor. Most places do not have curb cuts or wide enough doorways for wheelchairs. Have a plan for how to handle illness while traveling.
