The TUI Group is committed to providing as many people as possible with accessible holidays.Handicapped individuals have to plan their holidays far more meticulously than regular holidaymakers. TUI has developed an “Accessibility Roadmap“ with the German NatKo - Tourism for All Association and analysed the strengths and potential for development of its own accessible tourism portfolio.
A 16-page brochure has been published covering various aspects of accessibility and their significance for travel. The first two copies were presented to Parliamentary Secretary of State Thomas Bareiß, Federal Government Commissioner for Tourism, and Jürgen Dusel, Federal Government Commissioner for Matters relating to Persons with Disabilities by Thomas Ellerbeck, Member of the Group Executive Committee at TUI Group, on Barrier-free Tourism Day at the ITB fair in Berlin. “Inclusion changes perceptions. It also changes travel offers. Our accessible tourism initiatives make an active contribution to providing as many people as possible with an enjoyable holiday experience,” commented Ellerbeck.
